    HELL YEAH!!!

    And to bring this tangent back to thread, how 'bout Patterson Hood as Springsteen?

    Last night, Patterson (the nicest guy in Athens) came by the theater I work at to see New York I Love You.

    The "bums" James Caan is referring to in that clip are the New York Yankees who played at the Yankee Stadium which is being demolished.

    TAH-DAH!!!

        Mostly by bad marketing and the fact that the equipment became too expensive to allow good American drivers to go from the Sprint car ranks to Indy Car racing like the Foyts etc. had done. Instead, they went for the bigger cash cows of NASCAR and Indy got stuck with an endless parade of Formula One type winners.

        People claim wrongly that the Yankees have made baseball competition bad, but a genuine example of a fat cat rich team making competition bad is what Roger Penske has been doing in Indy racing for a long time.

            CBS doesnt even let me post their pictures on my site....probably something having to do with a blog getting more traffic to the pictures than their own site.

              A lot of men brag about the size of their equipment but when it comes time to prove it they're found wanting.

                That will be FINE - where is this thread going?
                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!

                    • LOL Richie!

                      As I get older I find it increasingly difficult just to mount the camera on the tripod.

                        Try buying the tripod a few drinks first.

                            Hmmm, I'm beginning to wonder if a cut & run is in the cards for that upper deck. The Mezz and Field seating sections are no more, so there's nothing precluding progressive removal of the connection cables and just letting the upper section just tumble into the playing field area.

                            No dynamite needed, just a clip, nudge, and over she goes. Tell you what - it would be the loudest sound ever heard in the Bronx!

                            OTOH, they could go with temporary posting and just pick away at it.

                            • Original Brick Facade

                              Will they sell the bricks from the outside Facade of the stadium I wonder....? That's a piece of the "original" stadium that I want.
