Talking about that other game • 11.14.10
As much as you may love baseball, when the World Series is done and the weather gets crisp like this, it’s hard not to get into football on the weekends.
Truth is, everyone is doing it:
• Joba Chamberlain was flat-out fired up about his Nebraska Cornhuskers yesterday.
• CC Sabathia has never made any secret about his passion for the Oakland Raiders.
• Even Chad probably wouldn’t want to answer if someone asked him which made him happier this weekend: Watching his sister get married or seeing a big Mizzou win on Senior Day? (Don’t worry, pal, your secret is safe with us.)
As for me, I’m headed out to the Meadowlands today to write a column for the paper on the Giants-Cowboys game. If you’re a football fan, enjoy the games; if not, then take comfort in this: Pitchers and catchers report in just 92 days.
Playing between the lines … • 11.11.10
… Or at least playing between the hashmarks. As you can see, Yankee Stadium is just about ready for the Notre Dame-Army football game on Nov. 20.
A new look • 11.08.10
With boxing, rap concerts and the occasional graduation ceremony already in the books, Yankee Stadium is getting ever closer to hosting its first football game with Notre Dame and Army christening the field on Nov. 20. Thanks to a picture distributed by Notre Dame, we can see the Stadium’s new look – grass everywhere and some goalposts, too.
Interesting location for the uprights, no? If anyone misses wide right, it looks like they run the risk of hitting George Steinbrenner’s moon-sized monument (thus causing massive lightning strikes from the heavens above, one assumes).
By the way, for any of our NYC readers: It seems the PSAL football championship will also be played at the Stadium on Dec. 7.
