Greetings from Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, where I’ll be writing on the Jets-Chargers game this afternoon. This is my first trip to San Diego – the Yankees never played them here when I was on the beat – and I can see why people who live here wouldn’t want to travel much. Nothing wrong with perfect weather all the time.
Nice as this city is, however, Qualcomm has a little bit of an old (and dingy) feel to it, which reminded me to post this update on the de-construction of the old Yankee Stadium. Click through the photo gallery, too, for more. Sad to see the old place down to the dirt.
In more uplifting news, great job by Jesse to get the pinch-hitter series started this morning; reading the guest posts (and the responses that Chad and I are going to do) should help get us through this final month before baseball returns. I know it feels like time is dragging.
For now, we’ve got some football. Enjoy the game this afternoon and feel free to check in with your thoughts in the comments here. Should be a good one.
