Our Roman Coliseum?
"The House That Costanza Worked In", which is Yankee Stadium II(Or Is it IV), is being compared with The Roman Coliseum?
In 1972, I was in that place in Rome, and it's Historic, and Shameful, as it was a Symbol Of Decadent, Pagan Rome, where there were Gladiator Bouts and the Systemic Murders of The Early Christians. To my knowledge, no Pope ever Offered Mass there. No Gladiator All Star Games were held there. The Voices of Michael Kay and Howard Cosell, were never heard there, during a Broadcast. I wonder how ancient Romans, would've put up with Babunius Cavelius(Tim Mc Carver):
The Closest thing to the Ancient Roman Coliseum Spectators would be The Current Right Field Bleacher Inhabitants, called the "Bleacher Creatures", who greeted Jonathan Papelbon, spewing "Over-Rated" and "A--hole". FOX actually picked up real sounds of the crowd. Unfortunately, the sound equipment was in the Bleachers. Some guy bangs on a Cheese Grater, and there's a chant of "Ho" going up. Because this was the All Star Game, some Creatures wore Tuxedos, with Yankee Caps. The word "Combibo" is Latin for "Suck", a word The Creatures used frequently at The All Star Game;
Thank Goodness The Bleacher Creatures were NOWHERE near Yankee Stadium, when Pope Benedict XVI, was Offering Mass, on April 20th. It would be as bad as a Gladiator Contest. A-Rod, The Ultimate "Glad-Me-Ator" would've tried to show His Holiness Up, by Canoodling with Magda(Madonna);
