A Cure for What Ails You?

Hillsdale_22107_042_1

Driving up the Deegan at about 65mph this morning on a trip upstate, we couldn’t help but (unsafely) grab a shot of Yankee Stadium through the windshield in the early day’s sun, fresh with a "38 days until Opening Day" sign.  Though we’re a member of RSN who hates this Stadium and everything it stands for, any sign like that brings a smile to the face.  Plus, we figure a little good will with Yankees fans, giving them a glimpse of their hallowed grounds at the end of February, could go a long way.

  • I’ve never been there, but just the sight of it makes me itch for the season to be here. Let’s play some games already. Honestly, if NESN were to run time on practice for a couple hours every night (or YES) for that matter, I bet each of us would be parked right in front of the TV for a glimpse. It seems that the more baseball seasons I live through, the longer the offseason gets each time. It really is pathetic if you think about it. Grown ass men, dying for a feggin season to start. It’s ‘outa control. I wonder what the hell people in the red-states talk about in the offseason? This years recruiting class at Ohio State? ugh.

    Thanks for tossing us a bone, SF. I promise not to complain about your next 2 Yankee bashing posts.

  • “posts”
    Does that mean threads or just comments?

  • A thing of beauty….Man I am going to miss that place. I know it sounds corny but I get chills every single time I go there. Thanks for the picture.

  • I got chills too. But that was because it was like 17 out and I didn’t know my drivers window was cracked.
    And there definitely appeared to be smoke coming out of the big bat. I wonder if, like at the Vatican, that means something has happened to the Boss.

  • wow, just seeing a picture of it made me move my wallet to my front pocket.

    I don’t know about the rest of the red states, Brad, but here in one of the redder ones, it’s rodeo season. Saw a performance yesterday afternoon, as a matter of fact. First time I’ve seen one and not had to write a story about it. Pretty enjoyable…

  • That’s a great pic, SF, thanks. Unfortunately, I think that crane in the center of the image spells future doom for the hallowed landmark.

  • rodeo? Man, that made me laugh. Not out of pun, but rather the thought of how different the cultures are from region to region in the United States. I’ve never even been to a rodeo, and to be honest, I don’t even think they have them here. Well, they probably do, but I don’t know where. I used to work on a lobster boat when I was about 20 with a guy who was in the rodeo, and I called him Ohio, which is where he was from. I was in college, and it was good times. ha. Makes me laugh. He had a belt buckle the size of a salad plate, and it had some Rodeo event on it. I laughed so hard the first time I saw it. Women loved that cat, though!

  • lol, I never had been to a rodeo or even cared much about em til I moved here. It is a completely different and fascinating culture than back home. Moving so far away really helped me appreciate the diversity this country offers, and it helps tamp down that regional egotism that I find so incredibly aggravating.
    Interesting tidbit: One of the biggest rodeos in the country used to be at Madison Square Garden each year…

  • “…we’re a member of RSN who hates this Stadium and everything it stands for…” = “…a little good will…”
    uh, that doesn’t compute sf

    Typical “RSN” ignorance.
