Shea Stadium; Citi Field; TAXPAYER PARK! [Update]

Citi Field, almost finishedImage by coffee is for closers via FlickrIt’s pure, delicious schadenfreude for this fan of the Yankees to see the Mutts get caught up in the Citigroup bailout mess:

The New York Mets theme song for the 2009 season is ‘We built this Citi.’ The question is whether the Citi will stand.

Questions about whether the humungous 20-year, $400 million naming rights deal that the bank agreed to two years ago for the new Mets stadium would stand up, began when the global financial crisis started. Then the 53,000 jobs cut at Citi, the second largest single job cuts in terms of volume in history. And last night, the government injecting $20 billion into Citigroup.

UPDATE: Looks like my choice for a new name is a Staten Island meme (with classic ‘local pol going native’ video goodness).

I claim “dibs” on creating it through the power of my mind!
