Repent ye sinners!

A picture named jesusChristIsComing.jpgThe cause of the crumbling economy is the city of NY where all the banks are located, the ones that are crumbling. I know this may sound silly, but I believe that when a city destroys a baseball stadium, nothing but bad things happen. Look at Seattle's Kingdome for an example. I don't need to say any more. The meaning is obvious. Permalink to this paragraph

Well this year NY is destroying two stadiums. Two! And they are two very historic stadia. Okay one not quite as historic as the other. There were a few interesting games played at Yankee Stadium over the years, but that's nothing compared to the history of Shea Stadium, where the hapless Mets of the 60s played and the Miracle Mets of 1969 won it all. Mookie Wilson and the 1986 Mets beat Bill Buckner and his Red Sox. Permalink to this paragraph

Now if you want the proof, the absolute incontrovertible proof, check out what the name of the new stadium is.  Permalink to this paragraph

That's right. Citi Field. Appalling. Permalink to this paragraph

God speaks to us in mysterious but clear ways. Permalink to this paragraph
