BEST SHEA STADIUM MOMENT EVER? HOW ABOUT BILL BUCKNER'S ERROR?
Citi Field opens tonight (Monday Night Baseball, 7pm on ESPN). This magazine is all about looking ahead ("next"), but right now, we're gonna look back, slapping a final bow on Shea Stadium by running down the greatest moments in the park the Mets inhabited while winning two ('69 and '86) world championships. There's been a bunch of iconic concerts at Shea, but we ain't gonna rank those. However, since this list has been done a few times on the Interwebs, we'll differentiate by offering you some talking points on the matters at hand. Enjoy.
