I present to you, the Piazza stampede. Yes, all those were eagerly following Piazza around hoping for an autograph, a glance, a touch, or just a smell. I'm pretty sure I was in the back of the stampede...ah, those were the days.
I wonder if this many people would have followed/stalked Piazza around if they knew about his bacne?
Say it with me, Mets fans: All hail Piazza.
