Inauguration Sensation

Lost amid the plethora of tributes to the old Yankee Stadium (including my own) is that the Mets are also moving to a new stadium this year. Say, where were all the "SportsCenter Top Ten Greatest Moments at Shea Stadium" specials and "History of Shea" coffee table books? Anyhow, both teams have recently unveiled uniform patches commemorating their inaugural seasons in their new stadiums.




Talk about a microcosm of each franchise's respective history. The world wide web is already bristling with scathing critiques and snarky commentaries directed toward the downright ineptitude of the Met's design, so I will say no more. However, news of the uproar has made its way to Stephen Colbert, and is featured in his latest installment of "Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger." P.S. Be sure to stick around for the "Monkey on the Lam" segment at the end of the video.
