It never ceases to amaze me how stupid some Yankee fans can be.
I caught part of the replay of the YES coverage of today's opening game of the new ballpark tonight, and I saw the nine-run seventh inning when the Cleveland Indians gave the Yankee bullpen an ass-hammering. It was 5-1 when Grady Sizemore went deep for a grand slam to put the game out of reach, and the Tribe went on to a 10-2 win.
Sizemore's slam landed in the right field seats, and YES showed a moron in that crowd throwing back the home run and raising his arms in the air to the applause of the cretins around him. Now think about what this doofus just did.
He threw back a piece of history. It was the first grand slam in the history of the new ballpark. If I caught that ball, it would be residing in my trophy case, regardless of who hit it. But instead, this guy would rather get five seconds of fame in the "look what I just did, ain't I cool" model.
Talk about a nitwit. Like I said a few days ago, blame it on those Cubs fans for starting this stupid trend.
And later that inning, Victor Martinez also hit a home run into the left field bleachers, and that ended up back on the field. Again, a home run hit in the first game of the park is still historic, no matter who hits it. It left me shaking my head again. (How much do you think Babe Ruth's first home run at Yankee Stadium in 1923 would be worth? Or any other homers in that first game would be worth?)
And BTW, I actually heard a media person the other day call this park, "The New House That Ruth Built." Let's get one thing straight folks. Babe Ruth has nothing to do with this ballyard, like he had nothing to do with the previous rebuilt stadium.
"The House That George Built Because He Needed Luxury Boxes" would be much more accurate.
