Today I present to you the first entry of a brand-new weekly series: the Rising Apple Top Ten. What you can expect is pretty self-explanatory: humorous, topical lists a la David Letterman about the goings-on of our favorite baseball team. All entries on these lists are credited to the staff at Rising Apple. To start it off, let’s do a Top Ten list quite literally 500 years in the making.
This Week’s Category: Top Ten Things Buried Under the Former Shea Stadium
You may recall that earlier this month, British archeologists confirmed the identity of the remains of King Richard III, who died during the War of the Roses in 1485. They found Richard’s skeleton in the most unlikely of places: buried under a parking lot in Leicester, England. It got me thinking about the Citi Field parking lot that used to be Shea Stadium. Here now, we’ve put together a list of ten things they may find when they dig up that old parking lot in 500 years. So here we go with the first Rising Apple Top Ten:
