    Shea Stadium, or whichever bank or corporations bought the rights for its name which I refuse to use, has become a vile and ugly faux heritage-style stadium.
    Shea Stadium was the home of the New York Mets, a baseball team. (The Jets did play there in the '60s-70s, but moved to the Meadowlands 30+ years ago.)

    I wrote "was" not because it now has a different name, but because it now no longer exists. It was demolished when the Mets built a new stadium, Citi Field, which to my knowledge has never hosted a professional football game.
