Why Yankee Stadium sucks
: "Its design is profoundly un-American. Baseball has traditionally played a unifying role. The ballpark is where people of different classes and races and religions actually mingled. The box seats, where the swells sat, weren't physically separated from the proles. The new stadium is like an architectural system of class apartheid."

The Field Day festival, intended to be a two-day outdoor show in Calverton, NY, (Eastern Long Island) has now been reduced to a single day,
and will be held at Giants Stadium in NJ. Tickets will be automatically refunded -- you must purchase new
tickets to the NJ show.

Two new baseball stadiums for New York!
At a time when NYC seems to be barreling towards huge debts, public workers aren't getting raises and the city needs to be rebuilt, the Yankees and the Mets -- two of the richest teams with the highest attendence -- are getting brand new stadiums courtesy of the city budget. Giuliani wants the deal finished as he leaves office.

ruined my day. The Yankees are going to buy another World Series. If I ever hear that the Yankees do not buy championship again I am going to poop my pants. They do buy championships. Man, do they suck.
