I hate to quote a satirical new source, but The Onion gets it right with this: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/27828 Just imagine if that happened, that Congress moved because they didn't like the Capitol. Well, Yankee Stadium is Major League Baseball's Capitol Building. Drafty or not, it's something that should be renovated and rerenovated until the end of time, never replaced.
It's quite possible that Hank Steinbrenner is an even bigger *ss than his father. He's approaching Art Modell's level now.
I'm the bleeding heart liberal your mother warned you about.

I agree wit you, TOG. A landmark like Yankee Stadium should be preserved. If it was falling apart to the point they could no longer safely use it, and it was to the point where they couldn't re-renovate it any further, then close it, but don't tear it down. Save it for the tourists. It was one of the first things we (my ex and I) went to see our first time in New York. I have at least a dozen pictures of us standing in front of it, and of just the stadium itself. I hate the Yankees, but c'mon. As TOG so eloquently put it, "Major League Baseball's Capitol Building." It was like a shrine among sports stadiums.
Not liking me will always be your problem. Never mine.
