      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
