Let's Sum Up Shea For You

From our good friend PeteAbe:

In terms of the experience, sitting down for a game at Yankee Stadium you sort of feel like you're at a special place.

Sitting down at Shea, you're worried the roof will leak and you might get bit by a rat. It's just such an awful place.

I once heard a Yankee fan say they prefered Shea because Yankee Stadium is "a dump."

This person has since been exiled from Yankee fandom in my mind.

Hey, if your plan is to build an ugly uncomfortable ballpark, why not put it right underneath an airport?

Oooh.

Well either way let's just agree that Shea sucks on a multitude of levels.

as a reliably unbiased person, I should be unquestioningly believed when I assert that Yankee Stadium is one of the most beautiful places on earth (shitty food and terrible tunnels notwithstanding).

Shea meanwhile is exactly the opposite... good traffic flow, concourse views and food and the most hideous colors, outfield "amusements" and seat layout on the planet. I mean, who puts GREEN seats with ORANGE and BLUE? What in the fuck!

was terribly distressed to hear EVERYBODY CLAP YOUR HANDS! being played at Busch during tonight's game. :shudder: whoever sings that better never get within throttling distance of my itchy hands
