And the countdown sits at 2.
matter how many times you say it out loud it’s still hard to accept the
fact that the Cathedral will be forced to witness it’s last two games
of it’s 85 year long life in the next two days. With a ballpark that
encompasses the essence of baseball itself, there is one thing that
must be mentioned as it’s doors begin to close… and that, my friends, is
that the stadium, even long after it is brought down, will not die. The
one right next to it will not diminish the lifetime of memories the
current Yankee Stadium has created within it’s walls, nor will it allow
people to forget the passion that has been generated by it. After the last game, the House
that Ruth built will continue to live as the legends do, in the
whispers of the wise on the days when the game was all you needed.
Not a bad day for the “move over Melk” man, Brett Gardner. The catch by
him in the 4th was one of the few that you have to see the replay
immediately to make sure what you just saw was real. He even got a
smile from Pavano, who continues to amaze all by remaining on the mound.
– I could see it 365 days a year and Mo’s entrance would still get me every time.
– Not much else to say about this game… or any game other than the one that will be played on Sunday. Like every other person
that can’t afford a ticket, I will be watching the game through my TV
screen. It’s doesn’t have to be said, but I’m going to say it anyway…
fact of life: you have to be rich or connected to do anything these
days. However, no worries, the new stadium will benefit the average fan
by decreasing the number of seats and increasing the number of suites
[word that means money]… must be excited about that.
Edit: I don’t know how I managed to space out when titling this one, but I got it right now. [Thanks for the heads up Level.]
