You may have missed this fantastic photo of the sky over Citifield at the Yankees/Mets game by Shannon Stapleton (of Reuters)

It has nothing whatsoever to do with baseball — but it is gorgeous and ominous and was hidden in the sports section.

The caption simply does not do it justice: “The threatening skies over Citi Field in the second inning could have been a sign that it was not going to be a good night for the Mets”

    How could the players possible concentrate on the game with that fantastic light show going on above their heads????

    I do love a good sunset but if you see the turbulent looking clouds as stormy and the darkness of the red an indication of a polluted atmosphere the inward looking scene creates a disturbing metaphor.
