    I was born and raised in Queens, dude, so no.

    • I would love to see "Secrets of NY" do a show on the uncovering of OYS during the demolition. I am sure there are loads of forgotten areas.

        I cannot believe there isn't even ONE Mister Coffee commercial featuring DiMag on YouTube! I mean, you've got people blowing up toilets on there h and ski jumping off the tops of their trailers in winter, but NO classic Joe DiMaggio Mr. Coffee ads?
        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!

          But that stuff is cool, and we all know what Joe DiMaggio looks like and sounds like.

            Now, no one will admit to the practice on an official level, but it is one of those open secrets that people speak of.

            Now that the Steiner B*st**ds are selling off snippets of playing field for $$$$ a pop, who would have thought that someone's ashes could cost so much to buy back??

            I doubt the ashes are still there. There is this thing called wind that would have picked them up and taken them elsewhere.

              How is this not totally obvious to everyone?

                  Those look like stink lines. Like the ghost of Dandy is still rotting.

                        I know, but some things are just iconic.
                        I mean, I was little, but if I wasn't watching DiMagg hock Mr. Coffee during a break, it was Margaret Hamilton selling Maxwell House as a shopkeeper(!) You know you've seen her before: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1smEagY12m8

                        -Harry Harrison("Morning Mayor" Old WCBS FM)

                        They're all on Youtube, but not a DiMaggio Mr. Coffee spot. Weird, I know someone's holding the purse strings to those ads. . . .

                        • I wonder how much trouble you would get in for sneaking inside the stadium at night when no one is around.

                            Well, the creepy factor would kind of scare me out of that (being there would be no light), even if I was a Yankee fan. But, people snuck into Shea during the demo and posted videos on YouTube actually. Surprisingly they never got caught.

                                um...........I don't know who any of those people are. And what the hell is a morning mayor exactly? Can someone please explain that one to me?
