New Yankee Stadium Gets Built


Being a Sox fan, I obviously don’t care for the Yankees too much; while our two(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) recent World Series victories have helped quench the hatred, it will never truly leave. That said, here’s a really cool video of the new Yankees Stadium being built using time-lapse photography, which, if you’re a regular reader you know I’m a sucker for. I also applaud the Yankees (at least for now) for being probably the ONLY franchise in sports to build a new stadium and NOT desperately seek out corporate sponsors for the naming rights. The Mets couldn’t WAIT to sell themselves, but the Yankees retained just a little bit of class and kept their stadium just as Yankee Stadium, and I for one am really glad about that. Of course, it helps to be making so much goddamn money that they don’t even NEED the naming rights fees, but still, in this day and age, I’m glad that Yankee Stadium isn’t going to be Pfizer Field or something…

Although, now that I think of it, Dick’s Sporting Goods would be a perfect sponsor, Yankee Dick’s Stadium or the Dick’s Stadium perhaps? The House that Dick’s Built?
