Citi Field Is Already A Huge Architectural Disaster

I used to sit in the press box at Shea Stadium for several years, and since I wasn’t exactly the most important guy in the room, my seat was below a large pipe whose purpose I never quite understood. All I know is that it often dripped what I assume was water, though I usually try not to think about the source. I’m just glad they have a nice new stadium there now so this kind of stuff doesn’t happen anymore.

Citi Field Subway Stop

(New name, same problems.)

What’s that? Citi Field is already a crumbling mess? FANHOUSE’s Tom Fornelli, citing a NEW YORK POST report, says the new stadium is riddled with structural issues even though the debut season isn’t even over yet. No word on whether the issues are related to a shirtless Tony Bernazard challenging the stadium to a fight.

Week In Review: QB Sanchez Does GQ, Gets Girl

• He hasn’t even thrown a pass yet, but Jets QB Mark Sanchez is already cementing his status as a Big Apple sex symbol with a GQ photo spread:

And Hilary Rhoda, the bikini-clad babe sharing the snapshot spotlight, is also apparently Mark’s new main squeeze.

Tony Kornheiser gives up his “Monday Night Football” gig, so ESPN tabs Jon Gruden as his replacement. It should be fun, considering what the ex-Bucs coach has said in the past about the Worldwide Leader.

• Will recent sex scandals cause Australian rugby to ban its cheerleaders?

• The Pepsi Center double-books a Nuggets-Lakers playoff game & WWE’s “Monday Night Raw” on the same night. Of course, Vince McMahon is going to have lots of fun with this Denver Debacle.

• Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is hoping her boyfriend, Formula One star Lewis Hamilton, will soon race with her to the wedding altar.

• It’s funny when a Mets fan loses a gold tooth in a Citi Field toilet. It’s even funnier when the same fan gets her arm stuck in the same toilet.

Mets Fan Drops Gold Tooth, Gets Stuck In Toilet

Two weeks ago Citi Field was christened with its first fistfight. Last week it was christened with its first streaker. Well, the ballpark’s officially open now, since the first Mets fan got trapped in the toilet.

Citi Field Toilet

Reinforcing every stereotype we have about Mets fans, the woman got her arm lodged in the toilet after trying to fish out the gold tooth she dropped in there. She was trapped for hours while security and plumbers worked to free her, the toilet flushing on her arm the entire time.

• But Dirk Nowitzki steered clear of any such confrontations, since he had his own problems with his own fraudulent fiancee. Hey, Dirk - Tony Banks feels your pain.

Citi Field Streaker Spent 8 Years Planning His Run

On Tuesday morning Craig Coakley woke up and went to work with a smile on his face.  That’s because he knew that Tuesday was going to be the last time he woke up as a nobody, for he was going to make his mark on the world that night.  Then his moment arrived when he stripped off his clothes, tied a toy monkey around his waist, and became the first streaker in the history of Citi Field.

Craig Coakley

It was an epic, magical moment that all of those in attendance with share with family and friends for years to come.

For Coakley I’m sure his life as a plumber is over, and now a new world of celebrity and power surely awaits him.  That or possibly a year in jail and definitely a fine, but that’s cool too.  A year in jail is nothing compared to the eight years Coakley spent planning his moment in the spotlight.

Phillies Fan KO’ed With Single Punch At Citi Field

Maybe they’ve technically been playing baseball there for a month, but Citi Field finally opened officially last night. Remember, it’s not officially Spring until the first Phillies fan gets knocked out with an overhand right.

Mets Phillies fans fight

This is the second one-punch knockout we’ve featured this week, which just goes to show you the Northeast has cornered the market on boozing meatheads. And there’s something in this video for you even if you’re not a fan of either team: the two fanbases are slowly removing themselves from the gene pool, drunken brawl by drunken brawl.

Mets Don’t Appreciate Dwight Gooden’s Graffiti

The Mets have now played six games in their new ballpark, Citi Field, and while it looks like a very nice stadium from what I’ve seen of it on television, Mets fans do have some complaints about the place. No doubt the price of a ticket to attend a game there is one of them, as is the team’s 3-3 record there so far. But a major theme amongst the faithful seems to be the lack of Mets history around the ballpark.

That’s something Dwight Gooden tried to help with when he visited the stadium for its first game. While hanging out in the Ebbets Club and at the suggestion of one of the fans, Doc took out a Sharpie and signed a blank gray area of the wall next to the bar, writing “Doc Gooden 84 R.O.Y., 85 Cy Young, 86 W.S. Champs.” The Mets were not amused.  They didn’t spend $632 million on the place to have players sign the walls.
