Out With The Old In With The New

OLD:


NEW:

The Yankees broke ground today on the new stadium which will be ready in time to open the 2009 season. While I'm sad to see the House That Ruth Built go by the wayside, no doubt the new home will keep me happy for many years.

Oh, and in case you care, that team in Queens is breaking ground on their new one soon, too...

UPDATE: While the politicans and Bud Selig nearly went weepy, Georgyboy was his usual charming self. According to 1010wins:

``Yankee Stadium is an iconic stadium, a place where Ruth and (Lou) Gehrig played, where popes and presidents have spoken, but so, too, will the new Yankee Stadium be an iconic stadium,'' Pataki said.


Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said he remembered going to Yankee Stadium as a teenager.
``I can still feel the joy and excitement as I stared in wonder at the field, perfect in every way,'' he said. ``And there in center field stood the hero of my boyhood, the great Joe DiMaggio. ... Yankee Stadium is an American monument that has endured for 84 years. Today we are breaking ground on a new Yankee Stadium, a new monument and new memories for the coming generations of fans.''


Steinbrenner, who complained of the heat, was brief.
``It's a pleasure to give this to you people,'' he said. ``Enjoy the new stadium. I hope it's wonderful.''
