Who would have ever thought that Shea would close? It's an icon. Alas, I am not attending opening day, but a colleague of mine is. (Lucky Bastard).
However, I will have the game on the radio and will watch the re-run when I get home.
In the past, I have attended 2, maybe 3 opening days. I used to go with a few guys from school. There were four of us. Skip, Gary, Larry and myself. Though it has always been combinations of 3 -- every year, one of us couldn't make it.
Take a look at Marty Noble's article about Opening Day. Hard to believe close to 3,500 games have been played at Shea. Gees, pondering a question...I wonder if there are any original season ticket holders from 1964 to date who have never missed a game?
