A Good Day to Play Two

I left Shea Stadium between games of an August 1998 doubleheader but I had a reason.  After a week of cryptic, distant phone calls from LA she was coming home.  I tucked in my new unisphereplusshirt and straightened my tie as I arrived at LaGuardia Airport.

I knew what was coming when she didn’t make eye contact.  As we drove past the 1964 World’s Fair she said it was best for her if we ended things.  I felt dumb for dressing up to see her and dumber for leaving a perfectly good ballgame just to get my heart broken.

    i just wanted to say that i LOVE summer blogging hours! since starting my new job i find that i don’t have as much time to read blogs. i am skimming some of my favorite bloggers which is something i thought i would never do. but you…you come up with this fabulous idea and i find myself reading your full post. sometimes i even read them twice because i have so much extra time! thanks!

  2. oh wait! i meant to comment as me, natalie. oh well. feel free to read the blog at http://www.midlifenatalie.wordpress.com as well if you are interested. i don’t think the link worked above.

  3. What a sad story. I hope it didn’t ruin Shea for you. I love Shea. I miss Shea. I don’t like Citi Field. I’m going there Saturday and I’m not that excited about it.

    A good woman would never ask you to leave in the middle of a ballgame. Especially at Shea.
