Curtain Call

I didn’t know I was on camera, but while I was applauding for every single Met right up to the Met of Mets (note scoreboard), Stephanie clicked me in action. That, I suppose, is what I was doing for the better part of an hour on September 28, 2008. Bringing Tom Seaver out was the only way you were going to get anybody to applaud somebody making an entrance from the right field bullpen during Shea’s final week.

    God almighty I will miss the way the upper deck would swing around and then abruptly end.A cliff- with just that short fence to keep you from falling to your death!
    Think of all those Topps cards with the backdrop of the Grandstand..
    Thanks again Greg.
