NoSenseWorrying.com shares a report on the fan reaction to A-Rod last night in the Bronx:
One of the more anticipated moments of the evening was how the Stadium would react to A-Rod. Well, I’m quite impressed with my fellow fans tonight. He received a nice ovation when he was announced his first time up. And that continued through the evening. Yeah, there were a couple of smart asses who still booed. But I saw people who I know dislike the man clap and cheer him on. They know that the Yankees need him to do well. I can’t say for sure what brought the change of heart on. Maybe they were sick of the media attention. Maybe it was because he ended the road trip on a good note. Maybe the fans who weren’t booing finally got tired enough of the other mooks and decided to do something about it. Who knows. But, I think the shift is happening.
And, for the record, it was a sellout in the Bronx last night – the 31st one this year, if I heard it right on the YES coverage. So, perhaps it’s safe to say that the booing tide is turning.
What was it that The Byrds once sang?
To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of peace, I swear it’s not too late!
