      Um, the Parthenon is in Greece. The thing in Rome is the Pantheon.

        I was trying to think of Yankees not named A-Rod who had played for the Rangers - only Tex and Pudge (who was only a Yankee for 2 months or so) came to mind.

        Still, by the end of his career, A-Rod will have played considerably more years here than he played with either the Rangers or the Mariners. He'll go into the Hall as a Yankee.
        Hopefully the bathroom hall. LOL!

        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!

          oh, I always get them mixed up. The one in Rome is accross the street from a McDonald's. Yes, they have McDonald's in Rome, believe it or not. They also have Blockbuster Video and Dunkin Donuts.

            True. I ate there. I thought it was a very strange contrast.

              Well, Gary, the next time he goes to Rome, he'll bring you back a Big Mac and a Coolatta.

              • I would like a piece of the Colosseum along with a genuine, battle-used shield that some hot-shot gladiator had. Steiner is handling all that too, right?

                    But, thankfully, the Parthenon and Colosseum still stand.
                    The world will always build new Parthenons and Colosseums, but McDonald's will outlast them all.

                    • My brother said he once wandered into a room at Renovated YS and when he looked inside, he saw a long, cavernous area, with old wooden seats sloping up toward this ceiling hanging over. Only a few rows of the seats were exposed, for there was concrete covering the first few rows, and the back rows receded directly into the ceiling above. He said he got "spooked" and did not want to get in any trouble, so he got right out of there. But he could never remember where he was in the stadium when he opened that door, and he could never locate it again.

                      Does anyone know where these "mummified" Old Yankee Stadium seats are located? I don't think I have seen, anywhere in the media or even on BBF, that there are places in the stadium where you could see such a thing. I think they must have extended the seats in the upper deck, and built a practically new lodge level on top of the old one. It kind of looks that way from these photos, but it's hard to tell.

                        The only thing I can think of is that he somehow wandered into one of the original upper deck concourse areas between the renovated upper deck and the loge.

                          Does anyone have any pictures of that area? I've always wanted to see it, but I've not once seen a picture. But then again, I guess if Gary doesn't have one, no one does.

                            Yeah probably because that was the only seating area they buried under concrete, wasn't it?

                              Yeah, I thought of Gary when I read a complaint on another thread at BBF (from an out-of-towner) about how "New York" threads seem to dominate BBF. One poster said, "They'd start a thread about 'Polo Grounds vs. Citi Field Hot Dog Wrappers' and soon have the pictures to compare them." And the other guy said "I know you're trying to be sarcastic, but it's true".

                              • could it have somehow been the back rows of the old loge or main level seating that had the concessions built over them? Maybe there were spots where they just put a room over them, leaving the rows intact.
