Thread: Yankee Stadium [I] Demolition

  1. #7461
    By the way, Gary, that was a very fair and objective assessment without going over the top regarding NYS. One minor correction though. The Grandstand is the one place that you can roam around freely and enter/sit anywhere you want, providing seats are available. The guards are "guarding" the Terrace seats. In other words, you can go "up" toward the Grandstand, without your tickets being checked, but not down, toward the Terrace seats.

    And you can call it Fake Yankee Stadium and get a chuckle out of me because you do it in good humor without malicious intent, plus you don't have an envious bone in your body.

    Have no fear. You can take as many photos as you want from the OF looking into home plate, providing you can squeeze your way to the front and get a good shot in. I've taken many photos from that angle. Just be a little aggressive to get to the point you want to take the photo. It shouldn't be difficult; most people won't will blink an eye.

    You're literally a favorite! You've been fair and objective from day 1.

    You have to let is know how you like those seats. I've sat in similar type seats and they are generally comfortable and those seem contoured to the fanny. Plus, with those holes, they must stay cooler than the regular seats. I also like that you can place your food and drink right in front of you. But, we won't know for sure how good they are till we get your report.

    Mets fan here, but I live 3 stops past Yankee Stadium and passing by on the 4 train to and from work everyday and seeing the demise of the house that Ruth built is a very sad sight to see. Wish they could have done this faster....It almost seems like they want to torture Yankee fans with a slow death.

    From the time the starting pulling down the upper deck, id say they got it down pretty fast for the most part. Before that they took their time gutting it and taking what they wanted to keep

    All will die within days. Maybe hours.

    Why did NYC and the Yankees decide to kill our great Yankee ghosts? Who does this?

    This is how curses start.

    God help the poor defenseless ghosts and God help their murderers.
    lets just pretend the Yankees didn't just win their 27th championship in the New House. Curse? what curse?

    I've seen "staff" at the top of the stairs to the Grandstand sections. They're not at every portal, but I have seen them. Maybe they softened up as the season progressed, and I don't know if they're there this year, but, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I have seen them.

    Why is anything considered old obsolete? European countries treasure their history. It's amazing nobody turned Gettysburg into a housing development by now. Young people today totally live in the now and have no regard for history..and to me thats tragic.

    You know, awhile back i bought from Steiner a piece of sod & freeze-dried grass from the stadium, and its in a case and looks nice, but I thought it might be a bit jerky. However, now that i am seeing the whole place disappear, i sit here as i type this and look at that sod/grass piece, and it takes on more and more meaning as each day goes by.

    Now i am tempted to buy one of the foul pole pieces that Steiner is selling. I grew up going there to watch Mantle roam that outfield, and this is really bugging me. All the people involved with the decision to not save parts of this stadium for the new park should have their houses torn down and all their family heirlooms in it burned up and see how they like it.
    I AM SO THANKFUL FOR BEING BORN IN NEW YORK AND FOR BEING A FAN OF ALL NEW YORK SPORTS TEAMS

    Oh, I've seen them as well, but for the most part they are either ornamental or just very lax. Maybe I'm wrong, but I rarely, if ever see them asking to see tickets and for the most part seem to be there to help fans to their seats. I think it's because you can't get any cheaper seats (other than the bleachers) than the grandstand, so why would anyone want to sneak up there? But they do check to see if you belong in the Terrace, probably to prevent fans with lesser seats from sneaking in there.

    That's been my experience the few times I've been up there. I certainly don't doubt your experiences up there, given your keen eye.

    Real Yankee Stadium was still standing. The ghosts could commute to work. They will not live in the new stadium. The curse starts now. Now that the heartless powers that be saw fit to destroy the crown jewel of baseball, and all of sports really, the curse shall begin.

    And so it was written.
    Fake Yankee stadium Fail!

    Honestly, the Ghost of Babe Ruth has been eating the garlic fries and drinking beer at NYS for over a year now, and the ghost of DiMaggio is enjoying the company of the ghost of Marilyn in the upper suites of the Waldorf where they used to live. The ghost of Mick is tending bar and holding court at his restaurant, the ghost of Scooter is home with his wife Cora enjoying some of her famous meals, and the ghost of Billy Martin is punching itinerant marshmallow salesmen.

    A good source told me that the ghosts of Babe and Mickey are too sloshed to even care, that Babe is still holding a grudge against the Yanks for not making him the manager as promised, that the ghost of Joe DiMaggio is too busy counting his every last penny, including money he made while employed by the Oakland A's, and the ghost of Lou has too much class to make any fuss. True story.

    ...although I don't know how reliable he is on all things Yankee. My research shows him to be more of a National League guy...

    Besides the historical references and those many fans feeling scorned, How can one say that RYS was better looking than NYS?? i dont get it. There is no comparison IMO.. New Yankee Stadium is one of the best lookng stadiums ever. If NYS was replaced by RYS people would be flippin out. I'm more convinced its the historical reference that people are in love with cause RYS had many flaws as well and many hated it after the renovations so the only thing they had left was the field and their memories of the greats who played there. New history will be made in the the new park for our kids and future generations. They will enjoy it. Calling it Fake Yankee stadium just doesnt make sense.

    Oh we'll see just how much they care over the next billion years. Or until the Stadium is moved back to its sacred ground. Whichever comes first.
