      Couldn’t agree more with: ” So it’s a shame that Yankees ownership demolished the cathedral of sports and put up a shiny new, cavernous building with all the antiseptic and hollow feel of Newark Airport, Terminal C. All metal, concrete, and videoboards without much charm or character.”

      And the advice he gives is spot on too.

      Me? I don’t mind paying $15 for the Lobel’s steak sandwich.

      I mean, if I have to pay $6 for a hot dog, and $7.50 for a terrible hamburger…

      Double.

      I really miss the royal blue color that was EVERYWHERE in the old Stadium. What they did with the new place would be like if Boston built a new Fenway and painted the new Green Monster red.

      And totally agree with his take on bringing kids to the game. If you want an amusement park, go to Great Adventure. And if they have an attention span shorter than three hours and just yearn to stuff their faces – just take them to Five Guys Burgers or Nathan’s – it’ll cost you a lot less.

      For better or worse, it’s the nature of the game today. Sometimes, with all the distractions present in pro baseball, sometimes I wonder if the game is secondary.
