While I am aware most of you don't care about the Yankees, you really can't deny all of the history that is being demolished here. I despise the Red Sox with pretty much every fiber of my being, however I will be sad when they blow up Fenway Park. While I was only there once (so far), I loved it despite the morons (not all people, just some) inside of it. Maybe some of you had never been to the old Stadium, and maybe some of you have never been to some of the original parks that are still left, but there is an indescribable feeling in them. Maybe that sounds crazy but if you have walked into an old stadium as opposed to one built in the last 10 or so years, you get it.
I think they left the old Stadium up for way too long, it was so sad to look at all season, it was dark, people had tried chipping pieces of it off (yes, I'm serious), and in the shadows of the new stadium it looked pitiful and not what it had always looked like. As much as I loved it, it would have been better to rip the band-aid off quickly so to speak and bring it down sooner. Steiner Sports had to make sure they got every little thing they could make a dollar off out of there first, so the poor building just sat there.
Watching that piece of it come crumbling down was depressing in a sense because of all the things I saw there, and all the memories. But I have to say, last season was one I will never, ever forget for so many reasons. The new Stadium delivered pretty much everything Jeter had promised when he said that they were going to take all the old memories and build new ones.
