Transplanted ex-Met Mike Hampton reminisces about Shea Stadium

From today's Sporting News interview with Mike Hampton:
Q:What came into your mind when you arrived at Shea Stadium on Tuesday?
A: Honestly, the 2000 NLCS.  We were facing the Cardinals.  The atmosphere was just electric.  It was just the best time in the world for me career-wise.  Just to be able to go out there and win and get to go to the World Series is something I will never forget.
