Happy New Year

Well it is finally here. Today is the day I look forward to every year. The day that won’t come quick enough as I wait during the cold winter months. Today is opening day at Yankee Stadium . . . for the last time ever!

Now don’t get me wrong, I think Yankee Stadium is a poorly designed dinosaur of a stadium, and the new stadium will be 1,000 times nicer. Even so, I am still really going to miss this place. I remember going there as a kid with my dad and brother. One time there I almost got a foul ball from Wade Boggs. Wade friken Boggs

Another time my dad had to try and convince my sister that the drunken revelers we’re actually making fun of Ricky Henderson’s socks, not telling him that he sucked. (Interestingly enough, I have since turned into the drunken heckler my dad avoided, on occasion). Well today marks the beginning of the end of an era (does that make sense?) Like any fan of any team, I’d like them to win it all. Although I would just settle for a few more memories from the place I’ve come to know and love (as well as flat out hate). That or a beer that costs less then 10 dollars.

(so I have terrible grammar…gimme a break!)
