ESPN acknowledges Shea’s greatest baseball moments


While this graphic was displayed during the Mets victory last night,
John Miller said, "most of the great moments at Shea don’t even involve
at all."  Awesome, nice to hear everyone shares the same affinity for
Shea and are
all squeezing in one last massive dump before they take a
wrecking ball to it.

Other great ‘baseball’ moments ESPN excluded:

  • Sometime in 2009 when they demolish the shit out of it
  • In 2000 when fans allegedly threw batteries at John Rocker
  • In 2003 when a plane flew over Shea reportedly carrying the recent Spelling Bee champion
  • In 1986 when everyone played shitfaced and still won
  • In 1985 when Morganna "the Kissing Bandit" jumped onto the field and had sex with Rusty Staub
  • Ben Agbayani bat day – 1999
  • July, 1983 – Tommy Bizzioni defeats Mikey Fritz in legendary Trans-Am drag race in Shea parking lot
  • During the 2002 offseason when a fan broke in and ran the bases naked
  • In 1992 when Pete Sampras beat Andre Agassi in the US Open on the courts next to Shea
  • 1988 – It was just a really nice day out

    I am amazed that the Pope even performed mass at Shea in 1979 considering the sewage problem Shea was having. My grandfather told me the Mets just kept throwing shit out on to the field.

    2002- Ricky Nolasco and Eric Hiljus smoke a doobie while driving near Shea Stadium and Hiljus has a seizure. Steve Philips immediately tries to trade for both players, only to be foiled by the fact that they both already play for his team.
