Shea Stadium Deserves A Suitable Sendoff
Really, there would only be two fitting ways for the last game ever at Shea to end.
Ideally, with a World Series victory, like in '69 and '86.
Otherwise, it would be most appropriate for there to be a crushing defeat, like losing the World Series to the Yankees in 2000, or the Jets losing to the Bills in the '81 playoffs on an interception near the end zone, or Terry Pendelton's homer in '87, or Mike Scioscia's homer off Dwight Gooden in the '88 NLCS, or Game 7 of the '06 NLCS, or Tom Glavine's meltdown to complete the 2007 collapse.
Those epic moments from Shea's history will never appear on any celebratory DVDs, but they represent much about the Shea Stadium experience over the last 45 years.
A loss on Sunday to eliminate the Mets, or worse, a loss on Monday in a wildcard tiebreaker, would be worthy ways for Shea to end. Losing in the playoffs at home would also be terrible enough for a real Shea sendoff.
