It ain’t over ’til it’s over

So no more games at old Yankee Stadium. What a night! There were ticket problems, celebrations and a good game of baseball – all of which I will probably write about at greater length but for now, it is a great memory and a great sadness that they’re actually going to demolish the place and sell it off piece by piece. There’s a great editorial in the New York Sun this morning which condemns this and I entirely endorse the author’s position. If this isn’t a national and a global treasure then I don’t know what is (hey, I’m biased). Turning all of the stadium or part of the stadium into a museum should be the obvious thing to do but somehow that’s not what is going to happen. Very disappointing, very strange.
I’m left with some great memories but there could be some more. I’ve made around 50 trips there over the last 15 years. I would want to be able to go back.
