I Have Very Few Words For This

I received an email from the Yankees a few minutes ago about their Flex Scheduling ticket plans for 2008. The email itself mattered very little too me, and I normally discard them quickly, but something caught my eye.

I don't know if this meant to imply that the Yankees will wear this as a patch on their uniforms this season, but I hope they do. It looks really nice. More importantly, it took my breath away. It's another indication that this is really happening. I know...I's a pile of concrete, and it's not the really old Stadium; it's the 70's facelifted version. But it's still my Stadium - OUR Stadium - and I'm going to have trouble saying goodbye to the grand old lady.

There's a charm and mystique to the old place, and I just don't know that it can be transported to the new building.

That is a cool insignia. I hadn't seen that yet. I'm a 31 year Yankee fan, and have been in CA for the past ten years. I see them a couple of times each year while I travel but last year I made sure I got back to Yankee Stadium in case I cannot get tickets this year, but I plan on making it back for the last year. I know what you mean - silly to get nostalgic for concrete, but I've been going there since I was a little kid & have a ton of great memories there.
