Talk About a Caesars Club

Robert Moses patterned Shea Stadium after the Roman Colosseum, yet only one of them isn’t a parking lot today. Mark “Bluenatic” Weinstein confirmed that not all ancient ruins have been paved over when he recently parked himself and his classic FAFIF t-shirt in Rome. I wonder if anybody over there mutters, “It’s a dump, but it’s our dump.” Probably not.

As for the shirt, it can be your shirt by clicking here.

    I can see the people in the stands behind Mark. I hear them saying, “Sure, the lions ate them, but they didn't die right. I took the whole office down to see the Saturday matinee and all they have are some puny Christians. I paid good gold for those seats and I get puny Christians? My life's not difficult enough? Someone bring those Christians back to life and give back my gold coins.”

    Mark's choice of attire during his international travels merits a big “thumbs up!” from this half-Italian…

    Believe it or not, this Colosseum is in better condition than the one in Uniondale.
