    Hi Gary,

    I was at last night's game as well. My seats are in the left field upper deck, three rows from the very top of the Stadium. I told my brother (and I am not kidding) that I know a guy from baseball-fever.com who is sitting right over there (pointing to where your seats are), who is taking pictures as we speak, and who is going to post them on this website tomorrow. He told me that I have a problem for knowing something like that, and I promptly said that he is the one with problem, that he doesn't know what he is missing in this little community we have going. I thought you would enjoy that.

    They had Ollie Perez pitching for the Mets on the out of town board.

    I don't think anybody saw my question from before, so I'll try again:

    When was the "353 ft" sign removed from the right field wall?

    A couple of fans use the extreme left field end as a vantage point to get pictures of the new Stadium...

    Gary,
    My son and I took a bus trip from Upstate NY down to the game last night as well. He recognized one of the people in this picture as being on our bus. We sat toward the bottom of this picture (Tier Reserved Sec. 36 Row P). I'm working on getting my pictures uploaded as we speak.

    Technically, you're wrong... I did not sit in my ticketed seat (Box 669, second row) at all during last night's game. I think it's the first time I didn't at least put in an appearance there.

    But I was, as implied and/or inferred from some of my shots, at the very top of that same right field porch. I stayed there until the end of the 3rd inning... I left to go to another section so that I had a good angle of the Diamond Vision for when they did the countdown clock. Too bad the guy who did it last night was someone I don't think anyone had heard of, but nevertheless I got a good shot (it's on Flickr) at the moment it changed... on the scoreboard it shows 39 games, but on the Diamond Vision, which must be on a delay, it still showed 40 games. I suppose I ought to post it on the YS Countdown Clock thread.

    Gary!!! How am I supposed to get anything done if all I do is read your comments and look at the million or so photos of yours on Flick'r.

    Ain't digital cameras great. Free film!!!!

    If you get a life I may be able to also!!!

    You should just start your own thread. GARY'S WORLD!

    Gary: I was at the game of the Babe Ruth family honoring and I could have sworn I saw you.

    Who else would be walking around with a camera, taking pictures of the weirdest things.

    today's YES coverage

    Yes, those frieze shots are great and need to be archived for future years when we want to relive the OYS in a similar thread. I noticed many new and expensive shots during today's broadcast. I wonder if they were helping to test out camera angles to be used for the All-Star Game coverage. There were some graet shots of the new YS as well.

    I loved that cameraman on the right field roof taking pics through the light rails. Amazing camera work yesterday, some of the best ever seen in a sporting event of the stadium itself.

    Future generations are going to look back on the current renovated Yankee Stadium and be amazed by the sheer size of the upper deck. They will discuss and pour over photos of the renovated Stadium much the same way we do with the pre-renovated Stadium.

    Cool

    Finally, perhaps the most shocking (to me, at least) of all the photos I took... during the playing of God Bless America, "security" or "staff" or whatever you want to call them take the chains that keep the riff raff out of the expensive seats and hold them across the aisle, preventing free passage...


    (Photo taken July 1, 2008. Gary Dunaier)


    I took well over 300 photos at the game... 208 of those, including the ten you just saw, are on Flickr, so if you want to see more click here.

    That final(bottom) photo illustrates everything that is wrong with where America is heading nowadays. Separation(in the name of security or whatever) is economic/class SEGREGATION - no matter how you call it!

    Another thing that comes to mind when looking at the renovated Stadium is that it's like hearing a compilation of 1970's pop music hits over and over again. It's as if you step into the Stadium and you start hearing such songs as "Blinded by the Light", "Hot Child in the City", "Piano Man", anything from Elton John, Hall & Oates or Stevie Wonder, maybe Peter Frampton. When fans run onto the field, you play the Dictators, the Clash or the Ramones.

    Maybe KISS should close out this Stadium.

    um...........

    why would they have a gimmick band that think they scare people by wearing facepaint and dressing like transvesites close Yankee Stadium?

    If they wanna have a concert to close Yankee Stadium, have a more modern band close Yankee Stadium. Some good bands include:

    Dave Matthews- He sells out basically every show

    Foo Fighters- Dave Grohl is a musical genius who was in one of the greatest bands ever. I don't see anyone who wouldn't wanna see Foo Fighters

    The Offspring- I went to go see The Offspring about 4 years ago @ Hammerstein Ballroom, and it was the best show I've ever been to. They also have a new album out, in stores NOW

    Metallica- I know theyre not the most modern band out there, but they kick ass. I saw them @ Giants Stadium, and they were great. Plus, what song does Mariano Rivera come out to? Oh yeah, Enter Sandman by Metallica

    Aerosmith- Once again, not the most modern band, and theyre from Boston, but I really like them anyway.

    Papa Roach- Currently, theyre on tour with Motley Crue, but I'm sure there's a way they can fit a show @ Yankee Stadium into their schedule.

    Limp Bizkit-.....................................maybe not.

    Guns N Roses- Not really the most modern band, but once again, Chinese Democracy is scheduled to come out this year.................................or is it?

    Stone Temple Pilots- They just got back together from being broken up for a while, and the DeLeo Brothers are actually from Jerzey, so they'll be happy because they'll be close to home

    Queens of the Stone Age- Great band. They sell out all over Europe. Don't understand why they don't do too many shows over here, though.

    311- Theyre playing at Cyclones Stadium or whatever it's called in Coney Island soon. If they sell out a minor league stadium, who says they won't be able to sell out a major league stadium?

    That's all I can think of right now.

    U2 and Billy Joel are two of the very few performers who have played Yankee Stadium. I say bring them both back - especially U2, considering the Yankees are playing a TON of U2 songs at Yankee Stadium this season (including "City of Blinding Lights" for the Yankee Stadium video montage before every game), and Billy Joel has seemingly tied himself to Shea this year.

    I seriously wouldn't be surprised to see U2 close out the Stadium. They have a bunch of songs that can fit the moment, too.

    Are you 13?

    That is the most embarrassing list I have ever seen. The sad thing is I know you were serious.

    Photo of a great artist practing his craft

    For those of you who thought you might have seen me at the July 1st game, dig this...


    (Uploaded to Flickr.com by user excalipoor on July 5, 2008; photo taken July 1, 2008. Link to original Flickr.com post: here)

    You really have to enlarge it to the Original size (3264 x 2448) to see it, but if you look in the top row, at the very end of the right field stands, that's me in Section 35, Row X, Seat 12, taking some of those great shots you saw earlier in this thread and elsewhere on Flickr.

    No, I'm not 13. I'm 25. And, wow. I don't get what the big deal is that I listen to modern rock.
