Two Great Things That Go Great Together

Citi Field offered Jason and family a bit of bad and a lot of good, as discussed in these first impressions, but on the good side of the ledger it was hard to top this double helping of Awesome.

    I couldn't disagree (respectfully) more. On the one hand, I'm thrilled they moved more than one Shea icon into the new place. On the other hand… to adorn a concession stand? Really? This was once a proud skyline, topping the world's most elaborate scoreboard (for its time.) Now it watched people line up for food. I'm not crazy about it.
    But the rest of the stadium I saw (also in person… couldn't beat that ticket price!)… Wow.

    I didn't mind, though I'll admit my ardor for Shake Shack makes me hardly an impartial judge. If they'd used the old apple as part of a beer garden or something I would have been annoyed.

    you guys read into things way too much. it was nice they brought the skyline over, its a piece of shea i loved, one of my fave things to look at there, and now its in a great visible spot. where else would you put it at citi? people have nothing better to do then complain. its not there to ADORN a concession stand. its in an open area out near fan fest where people will congregate and pass through and its a great site. also much closer to the fan so you can really see it good and take pics
