My mother however would be pleased, as she sat with me at Shea throughout some of the Mets longest games of 20 innings plus to watch them lose. She would have been far more comfortable here in a place she used to know and love as a kid. For me… it's just another retro ballpark which I really hope I never see another one made again… but… it is nice. And, it's comfortable, and I'm lulled into thinking that if I have to be here for the rest of my life, there could be worse things (like … um… never mind I can't go there or the other half of NY will hate me).
