April 4, 2003 -- Not only is
David Cone making his much-anticipated comeback to Shea
Stadium tonight, but his famous legion of followers will be there as well.
That's right: it's the return of the Coneheads.
"We're dusting them off," said Andrew Levy, leader of the group.
The Coneheads, who were a scene-setting presence in
nearly every one of Cone's home starts at Shea from
1988-92, will be back for the first time since the righty
was dealt from the Mets to Toronto on August 27, 1992, Levy confirmed last
The group began back in 1988, when a few alumni of Lehigh
University were looking for
something to rival Dwight Gooden's "K Korner."
Levy and his buddies came up with the "Cone Con'er,"
and used traffic pylons instead of Ks for each Cone strikeout. The group sat in
the left-field upper deck.
Eventually, the group of seven grew to about 50. Levy said there might be that
many Coneheads present for the Mets-Expos game.
