Big league ballparks have made cameos in movies for decades. Who could forget Matthew Broderick taking his buddy and girlfriend to Wrigley Field in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"? Or Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore's dramatic reunion at Fenway Park near the end of "Fever Pitch"? And of course, there have been several appearances in baseball-themed films like "Major League" (and its sequels) and "Little Big League" just to name a few. But few have generated the buzz that Citi Field's role played in "Sharknado 2: The Second One." Here's a sampling of the reaction on Twitter.
That dark cloud over Citi Field was actually just Bobby Bonilla's contract #sharknado2— Andrew (@andrewveis) July 31, 2014
The scene in sharknado 2 of the mets fans running from citi field in horror was taken after an actual mets game #Sharknado2— Nick Martorano (@martorano4) July 31, 2014
Citi Field getting destroyed by sharks would actually be an improvement for the Mets. #Sharknado2TheSecondOne— Patrick Cornell (@PCornellCNN) July 31, 2014
Footage of CitiField in Sharknado 2 gave Citibank $91,000 in equivalent advertising tonight, according to @FRAnalytics— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) July 31, 2014
