  • The Monument

    On the Nat Geo sites I found showtimes for Europe, Asia and South Africa but nothing in the US. Makes sense. Also, I don't think that they were there for the entire demo. A Turner employee told me that they were told to leave right around the middle of the job.

    Oh I heard about National Geographic doing a documentary about the demolition, but it was for Australians or did we just miss when National Geographic was going to air the documentary in the US?

    EDIT: I found it on their website and is going to be on again next Wednesday at 9 PM, but when I go to set my DVR it doesn't say it will be on then. Ugh.....

    Brandon Steiner is a nice guy, spent a very pleasant afternoon at Yankee Stadium with him and have been a customer of Steiner's since their partnerships with the Yankees. Yes it's not perfect but I am very appreciative to get ahold of the memorabilia they offer. I think they did a good job offering the items for sale from the old Stadium, just as MeiGrey did with Shea. Memorabilia is a big business and someone has to cater with it.

    Interesting reading, thanks for that link Gary.

    Note that i am a big baseball card collector, and collect some memorabilia too, so it was really interesting to me.

    Remember this?



    Brandon Steiner... it's the day before you are about to sign the deal to take down Yankee Stadium. What are you thinking about?

    To see what he says, click here and go to page 4 of the PDF document. (Advisory: the PDF looks to have been produced by Steiner, so it may not be as objective as one would like... but it's still interesting reading.)

    If a Baseball Player ever deserved a monument outside a stadium... a monument that would be grander then ANY other players monument in any other city, that player would HAVE to be Babe Ruth....

    New Yankee Stadium should have such a monument

And it is important that the target audience of these attempts to delude - those Yankee/general baseball fans not yet out of their teens - explore this site and learn the TRUTH. It's all here, on B-F. And neither the Mayor, the City, nor the Yanks themselves can dispute what's on here, even if they do replace everything on that former YS site down to the sidewalks!

    you said "yanking it out"
