MPOTD: From The Nosebleeds

MPOTD: From The Nosebleeds

The upper tank at Shea was an experience. It's tough to remember just how high it was, since Citi's Promenade (Upper Deck) was designed to be a full level lower.

After opening in 1964, the upper deck was actually closed off sometime around the late 70s. Attendance was down, and it just made more sense to sell ticket in the Loge, Mezzanine, and Field levels.

Once "Grant's Tomb" came out of the catacombs, the "Upper Tank," as Keith would say, was re-opened. And when Shea was full and packed to capacity, there was no better place to be. The place rocked like no other (at times, it literally felt like it was about to collapse), and it's a feeling that can't quite be replicated.

My buddy Keith Terra shot this photo from the last row behind the plate in 2008. If it looks familiar, you may have grabbed a print from us back in 2010. They were signed and numbered.

Keith has been a professional photographer for a couple decades now and mainly shoots abandoned buildings, BMX, and weddings to pay the bills. Check out his IG account.

RIP, Shea.

As Spring Training concludes, we’re supposed to be full of optimism. After all, the Mets did have a pretty damn solid offseason. Instead, we’re left with a sour taste in our mouths.

The 7 Line Army's "NY Camo" Mets jersey lost twice in the season ticket holders vote. I vowed after this years vote, that it would be dropped from the ballot forever. It has, but I just can't let this one die.
