I wish I could take a tour myself.

I wounder how Bob Sheppard feels moving into a new stadium. He's works at Yankee Stadium for a long time.

Greg Cohen said...

From an interview I read of his he basically said it's bitter sweet. He's happy they're getting a new stadium, but he's going to miss the old one. I'm sure the same emotions a lot of us are feeling.

I posted this in the stadium videos thread, but I thought it might get buried, so I'm reposting it here...

Here are some pictures from the stadium updates page to sort of illustrate what I mean (with regard to the upper deck being further away). Desipte the upper deck being pushed back, there's still something very imposing about the upper deck plus the frieze... I don't even think the old stadium looked this "looming":

You have a valid point Pinstripes, I guess we all won't know for sure until we actually sit there and see it for ourselves. I hope it ends up being great.
