Watching the last game from Yankee Stadium made for quite an evening for a Yankees fan of some 45 years . . . Talk about a blast from the past. All the great players . . . All the great moments. . .
I sat in front of the TV with my sons and we just soaked it in, not saying much, but collectively marveling at the accomplishments of Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio, Mickey, Yogi, Whitey, Reggie, etc., etc. All in all, it was a fitting end to a dismal year, the first time since 1993 that my Yanks won't be playing in October.
I'm sure the new stadium will be state of the art and the team will rebuild, but it just won't be the same. No sports venue on earth has the magic of Yankee Stadium.
