Hey remember how the Yankees changed their ticket policies to no longer accept print-at-home tickets? NYCFC, who also play in Yankee Stadium for some reason, announced Friday that they were planning to stop taking paper tickets too. They have a game today, two days later. In their release, the team said they’d be…
The anguish that is watching a Red Sox-Yankees game proved especially torturous in the Bronx tonight as a game already in its fifth hour came to a 15-minute delay as lights all over Yankee Stadium suddenly fell silent, as if they had been, like the modicum of remaining fans, literally bored to death.
MLS expansion team NYCFC, which starts play in 2015, will play at least three seasons in Yankee Stadium. But if New York City won't build them a soccer-specific stadium by then, well, who knows where they might end up? The arena blackmail game seems to play out faster than ever these days.
The Maple Leafs officially announced the hire of Brendan Shanahan as team president today, so it seems like a good time to dig up this old story of a younger, wilder Shanahan, beating the shit out of some Yankee Stadium bleacher creatures.
At yesterday's Yankee Stadium game, the night was cold, the beer flowing, and the bathroom lines long. One fan simply could not wait.
Martin Brodeur called the makeshift rink at Yankee Stadium "the worst ice I ever played hockey on," and given a 21-year career, that's saying something. No other player on either team had such harsh words for the ice, but, then, no other player got yanked after giving up six goals in two periods.
The fifth home game at Yankee Stadium after 9.11 was Cal Ripken Day. Here's my scorecard. The game ended in a 1-1 tie, called due to rain. It was a cold, miserable day. I remember seeing cops on the roof of the Stadium behind the lights. They looked like prison guards.
Yankee Stadium tries to be classy, and fails miserably. Again.
We groused, circa opening day, about the Yankees' "Craft Beer Destination" that has no craft beers—everything there is MillerCoors—and only two actual beers. Guess what? Deadspin gets results.
I do not say this lightly: beer snobs might be the worst people in the world. But not even they deserve to be locked in Yankee Stadium for four hours, with the only unconventional option being this dinky and confused beer stand with four drinks on tap, all behemoth-brewed by the MillerCoors conglomerate.
