The worst part is, they were taking down my Shea Stadium… a ballpark that I grew up in… and they were replacing it with a monolith to the Dodgers; (A team that still exists and is one of our biggest rivals). I've been complaining for years that the Mets are too Brooklyn Dodger oriented and the Wilpon family needs to start giving the Mets their own identity. The building of a new Ebbets Field replica, easily erased any chance of that ever happening in the next 75 years. My Mets were now the new Brooklyn  Dodgers of Queens.
