Did you see Lisa Swan’s review of the new Yankee Stadium today? Having been to the new Stadium, twice, myself already, I thought Lisa’s review was very well done – and spot on…in terms of covering everything, etc.
For me, it’s funny. It took the arrival of the new Stadium to make me fully understand how much the old Stadium was home to me. I thought I knew that already – but it’s really starting to hit me, hard, now. Even just seeing clips of the old Stadium, from last year, during YES broadcasts now, gives me goose bumps and a sense of longing for the old park.
But, in any event, it’s time to get over that – no matter how the new Stadium rubs me. It’s here. The old one is not coming back. It is what it is, right? And, as Yankees fans, we probably better start learning to love it.
