METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 31, 2000 GAME:Jon

I was reading about how Mickey Mantle would overcome his hangovers by walking from his apartment at Central Park South to Yankee Stadium and became oddly inspired.

Within months I'd be living in Queens and walking to and from Shea often, but then it was a complete mystery to me.
