      Here in New York City, the NY Mets are building themselves a new stadium to
      open in time for next season. It will replace what was called Shea Stadium.
      The new stadium will be named Citgroup Stadium; 200 million dollars over 10
      years for naming rights. Of course, that's the same Citigroup that's been
      the recipient of who knows how many billions of dollars in federal bailout
      money.
