    I wonder if kermit the frog
    HAD to pay for his seat/ticket
    http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/ey...ee-home-opener


    WHY?
    the muppets are NYC family ambassadors
    meaning they are invited to parks and other events
    to welcome visitors/tourist (families) to the city

    Man, those military jets are really powerful! I'm in the north Bronx, they flew over us right after they passed the Stadium, I watched them curve out over the Long Island Sound. They really shook the whole neighborhood!

    Have you ever been to an airshow?
    RYS to NYS: "Obi-Lonn never told you what happened to your father."

    NYS: "He told me enough. He told me you killed him - in the 1970s!!"

    RYS: "No, I am your father..."

    NYS: "No, it's not true, that's impossible!!!!"

    RYS: "Look beyond my respirator pods and my upper crown; you know it to be true!

    ^ Yep. AFAIK, it used to be just a Bud logo, now it says "GRAB SOME BUDS".
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

    Great work as always. Loved the photos of Jorge. He was one of my favorites and I grew up watching him come through Columbus on the way to the big club.

    Avid fan of the greatest Stadium ever built! Both in beauty and aesthetics throughout its long Glorious history.

    Yeah, I did, and I even bought a couple of bottles.. (I like the look of having a bottle of cologne with the interlocking NY on it, in my master bathroom).
    What can I say? I'm crazy about the New York Yankees!!!

    PS: Smells pretty good too.

    The Stadium needs a better beer selection. But...

    Is your master bathroom made of LIMESTONE!?!

    But seriously. I made my first trip of the year to Yankee Stadium, and after spending some time reading this thread, the experience was so much greater! I saw the cracks in the Gate 4 sign! I saw the massive amounts of Indiana limestone! I found all the great eats and less-than-stellar beer selection! I even bought a banana at the Famers Market!

    Diving a little deeper:

    -I love that Yankees tickets on the secondary market are making games affordable, and nobody is being priced out. My ticket + parking cost $15.

    -Unfortunately, I found myself spending another $15 on a Meatball Parm sandwich! (which I recommend to anyone, it is amazing). I saw the steaks, and they looked good, but a Parm sandwich, fried pickles from Brother Jimmy's and a Goose Island beer (it was that or Hoegardden) ran me a cool $50. For some reason, I cant complain, because lets face it, spending US Dollars at Yankee Stadium may be the most American thing to do, ever. Oh, and everything was fantastic.

    -Like i've been alluding to: THE LIMESTONE! I wish I took some pictures; it's everywhere! Outside, inside, filling the otherwise empty hallway on field level under the bleachers, and supporting my urinal! Makes you realize why the place cost 1.5B.

    -Yankee Stadium II, in my opinion, is as silly and quirky as any ballpark in history. Where Tiger stadium had a unique overhand, Yankee Stadium has people eating sushi in a nice restaurant, with a nice view of the concourse:

    WP_000022.jpg

    Where the Polo Grounds had the historically large center field, Yankee Stadium has....more people eating sushi in the food court:

    WP_000021.jpg

    If that doesn't make you smile or laugh as you walk around the Stadium, you need to go home and come back in a better mood.

    -SOMEONE IS USING AN IPAD IN YANKEE STADIUM!

    WP_000025.jpg

    (its a customer service rep, but still )

    -And to all you mallpark defenders, I seriously almost asked for a shopping bag after getting my meatball sandwich, because it felt like I was in the Great Mall, not Great Hall.

    Overall, a great day at a great ballpark, and a nice diversion to keep me away from an awful Devils loss and a lackluster performance by the Mets. For the first time, Yankee Stadium felt, to me, like another mammoth structure in the stable of MLB parks, rather than some holy temple to the Bombers.

    and, at the end of the day, it's still Yankee Stadium: the only ballpark in America with a view of the Bronx County Courthouse.

    (if you're still with me, I want to thank you guys on BBF for making my first two trips, and any more trips I take this year, so much more fun and enjoyable. Learning about the history and secrets and quirks about the parks make them that much more exciting to explore, and make me want to explore so much more. I spent a lot of time on my lap around the field level taking pictures and crafting this post. We are nerds. )
