If you haven’t read about Larry Dobrow’s covert trip to the new Yankee Stadium, you’ll want to check it out.
He even had a Brian Cashman sighting:
And so it was that I found myself waiting in the lobby of the old Yankee Stadium at five to 10 on a chilly Friday morning. In November, amazingly, there’s more bustle around the Yankees than there is in mid-August at a Marlins home game. Tour groups snaked around the building on the third-to-last day they were offered, even with Monument Park already packed up and relocated across the street.
Brian Cashman darted across the lobby and into an elevator, responding to the security guard’s “Hey Cash, what’s the good word?” with a quick “Thunderbird.” This, I later learned, was a cheap-hooch ad back in the 1950s. Gotta love Cashman.
Always good to know that your G.M. is up on his bum-wines…
