I went to the Mets - Reds game last night. It was a very good game. I really liked it! But the traffic going to the game and leaving the game was a trocious as usual! And the Mets won 3-2! I predicted a Mets win by a score of 5-3. So I was a little off! Then in the New York Post this morning, the talk was about how the Mets would go out on strike if that's what the Union wanted! Talk like that just ruins everything!

And Shea Stadium, where the Mets play, has nothing on Camden Yards in Baltimore, or Allie's Field, Safeco Field in Seattle. Those stadiums look wonderful on television!

But the Mets need a new stadium. And as long as the Mets owners pay for it, that's fine with me. They can forget about New Yorkers footing the bill for new stadiums for the Mets or Yankees! New York City and it's surrounding areas needs to spend taxpayer money on schools, on fixing the terrible roads and fighting crime. Not on stadiums for the Mets and Yankees. Besides, New York needs to build a magnificent monument for those people killed in the heinous Twin Towers 9-11 attack. Even though I really can't afford to, I'd gladly help financially support the building of a wonderful memorial site at Ground Zero! But I would never help financially support the building of new stadiums for the Mets and Yankees. No way! In the scheme of things in today's world, new Baseball stadiums aren't that important. That's just the way it is.
