Report from the Stadium

Here’s a report from Kevin Devaney, who is at the Stadium:

• I took two laps around the main concourse at Yankee Stadium this afternoon, which had to total about 12 miles in length. If you come to a game, you’ll never be wanting for food. They literally have everything, from tofu to fresh fruit stands to sushi to cheese steaks to Brother Jimmy’s barbecue. If you wanted a bowl of cereal, I’m sure it could be arranged.

• Noticed that the concession stands not only have prices on the boards, but calories. Surely it will hurt sales. However, I noticed that beer is $6 for a regular cup and $9 for the souvenir. Good prices.

• Bernie Williams was here at the Hard Rock Cafe for the “guitar smashing” ceremony. He played a song, as did Ace Frehley of Kiss. Actually, Frehley lip-synched New York Groove, which doesn’t qualify as singing.

• The fans were let in around 11 a.m. yet it doesn’t seem all that crowded. I think most are navigating the concourse. Today might set the record for pictures taken on cell phone cameras.

• However big you think the center field television is, you’re wrong. It’s bigger.

• Amazingly, the inside of the Stadium from some angles looks exactly like the old one. The seats don’t hang over each other, of course. But looking out form the main level, you feel like you’re back there.
