Moody Monday 10/13/08

I snapped this pic of Dwight Gooden, at the last Met's game ever to be played at Shea Stadium. 
He was in a melancholy mood. Here he was, wearing his "enycee" shirt, in the SNY press box... but he wasn't paying attention to the game. He wasn't thinking about how the Met's were blowing their chance at the play-offs AGAIN. He wasn't even watching the game at all. Following his gaze, I put down my camera and turned around to see the parking lot, and beyond that, stretched the borough of Queens. He was thinking... "I used to OWN this town."

Wow, Dwight Gooden's always had the sexiest, most revealingly soulful eyes & you somehow captured that beautifully - from a distance, no less! Dang, you're good!
