MMC-The Time Is Now 2100 Posts-Greenwich Village Mean Time(G V M T)

Baseball is a pasture type game. So WHY does Yankee Stadium II seem more like an unfriendly armed camp?

I have never felt this way in Jarry Park in Montreal, Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia, Fenway Park in Kenmore-Boston, or Shea Stadium in Corona, Queens. Then, again, those 4 Ballparks are places where the fans appreciate the game, and the fans are not there, looking to suck down 5 beers by the bottom of the 2nd inning;

Strange about Yankee Stadium I-Unless it was Bat, Ball or Cap Day or Old Timers Day, there wouldn't really be any crowd at all. Mantle often played before crowds of 12K. The crowd on the last day of the 1966 Season was announced at 413;

Until 1996, crowds dared not venture to The Bronx. After 1996, Celebrities and other assorted Hipsters and Arrivistas, made their way to "The House That Lindsay And Beame Built", which replaced the Original, in 1976;

The place is SOOOOO-PHONY. Instead of Ushers, The N Y P D acts as the Steinbrenner Strike Force. It doesn't feel like a baseball stadium. Then, again, the place is full of a--h-les;

I've said Good Bye To Shea Stadium and it was tearful. I'll probably laugh like a hyena when the 32 Year Old Yankee Stadium II closes up, as the Yankees and M L B perpetrate their Lie on an Unsuspecting Public;

Remember This-Shea Stadium is OLDER than Toilet II;

Ciao!

Later!

I haven't been to Yankee Stadium since Mantle was playing right, but I believe you. Friendly Fenway NEVER sounded better. We should have won that game yesterday, but 2 of 3 ain't so bad. Have a great weekend, Mike.

And YS II is NOT the Authentic Item:

The Whores, I Mean, Lords of Baseball will tell this B---s--- to the Unsuspecting Fan;

But, I'm a Suspecting Fan, who KNOWS it's The Biggest Crock of S--- Ever Made Up for TV Ratings;

I'm NOT BUYING into this garbage;

AND Shea Stadium is actually older than Yankee Stadium II. Hey, DFYankees played there in 1974 and 1975;

And that's the truth;

Later!
