Metropolitans Dissing UN With New Team Logo?

Before (L) and After (R)
Talk about your conspiracy theories! This one should be featured on that favorite overnight talk show of the 'tin-foil-hat' crowd, "Coast-To-Coast AM". Somebody with a lot of time on their hands noticed recently that a "new" Mets skyline logo had transformed the silhouette of the UN building into the Citigroup Center building. Holy Illuminati! Even the respected logo site, SportsLogos.net has weighed in on the controversy, giving a detailed breakdown of the evidence worthy of a paranoid Oliver Stone movie ("Back, and to the left. Back, and to the left. Back, and to the left"). Of course, it raises the question, why would the Mets want to devalue the UN? Or, an even more important question, who the hell cares?
