ODE TO YANKEE STADIUM

A moment of silent please… On Sunday night, the plug was pulled on Yankee Stadium. The last home game for the NY Yankees, a win by the way, before they play in their new stadium in 2009. Time to move across the street to the new and improved and modern Yankee Stadium. Yankee stadium, where the greats like Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle roamed. Out with the old, in with the new. But don’t be sad, let’s look at the positive side; Maybe the new stadium will help A-Rod out with his playoff woes?  Maybe the new stadium will convince Jason Giambi to shave that porn-stache he’s growning?  Maybe the new stadium will return them to the playoffs? OR, maybe the new stadium will be a dud, and the “Yankee Mystique” will be gone forever? Only time will tell.  But for now, enjoy Yankee Stadium and what it has stood for for the past 85 years, the home of one of the most hated teams in all sports. Hated because they’ve been winning for so long, sure, but nonetheless hated. You will be missed old friend.  R.I.P.

P.S. Where the heck was George Steinbrenner?
