Almost (I)

Just over a decade ago, Brandy had a song (covered by country artist Mark Wills later in 2000) that reminded us that Almost Doesn't Count. Well, here on Scribe, consider this video an exception.

(Yeah, I know what you're thinking: He just referred to Ray J's sister.)

Yesterday, along with Stephon Johnson, we took a trip to the new home of the New York Mets (Citi Field) while paying a slight homage to its former and suddenly, more-revered home (Shea Stadium).

Now, for those of you who have been parusing the internet for reflections of Shea and glimpses of Citi, you've certainly seen better looks. Yet, you're looking here because... well, at least someone's having fun with it.

Season-ticket tours

Ticket sales for only April and May as of this post.

While Ken Belson and Richard Sandomir of the New York Times heap the positives...

John Koblin of the New York Observer is not so fond of Citi. Thoughts?

Citi's Wiki.
Oh, and a note about the Home Run Apple: you saw it sitting in the centerfield/bullpen gate. Apparently, that will be the permanent home of the original as there will be a new Apple erected in the new outfield bleachers.

The latest from the new Yankee Stadium coming next.
