12 Years Later, It Still Hurts

12 Years Later, It Still Hurts

by Darren Meenan February 18, 2021 0 Comments

12 years ago today, the last piece of our beloved Shea Stadium came crashing down. 

I remember wanting to go, but had to miss this last day of demolition for some reason or another. Thinking back on it, I'm kind of glad did. I have very fond memories of Shea, and I don't think I'd want to have experienced that in person. Like voluntarily watching an old friend take their last breath. Hearing the crowd cheer at the end of the above video is hard enough. 

I did head over a day or so later though, and walked away with a piece of her core. 

RIP SHEA
