[QUOTE=Aviator_Frank;1145416]First post here, great board folks!
Many posts I see about the frieze going up in the new stadium are ooohs and ahhs, but if you look at the old vs the new you'll see it's somewhat different. The new frieze looks like a cheap stamped steel relative to the current and past versions.
Frank, you're unbelieveable. Great catch. I am a humungous Yankee fan. I'll go to my death bed knowing that I never ever went to old Yankee Stadium. I am so happy that they are building a new stadium, only because Yankee Stadium has become a DUMP (In My Opinion). But for 1.3 Billion dollars you'de think the could spend some of it on a real friggin frieze. You are right. That frieze is a cheap metal cut-out piece of crap. I am so pissed off about this, I could scream. Why not use copper and make it look like the very first one. Now I'm sick to my stomach. I told you guys that I hate Steinbrenner. Just another reason added to the list. This sucks!!!!!
