Keeping the stadium intact until the end

By

Don’t loot Yankee Stadium, folks. On Opening Day, the Yankees security crew caught two fans attempting to steal stadium bunting. They will be charged with larceny and criminal mischief. But worse: They had their season tickets revoked by the Yankees. This probably isn’t the last we’ll hear of Yankee Stadium looting efforts, but the price of getting caught just isn’t worth it.

    This is why I’m thinking of selling my tickets to the last game. This kind of thing is only going to get worse and the last game forget it. It could set the stage for a very dangerous situation. Although there probably be a small army of cops what’s that against 50,000 fans trying to get a small piece of history. I don’t know ?

    I already got my bleacher seat from Game 6 in ’96 so I’ve got nothing to worry about this year lol.

      Actually, they’re just plastic flats attached to high school-style metal bleacher rows. It wasn’t that hard to snap off.

    Bunting? Geez, if you’re gonna risk getting caught, steal something better than bunting. . .

    I may be just a fool, but what is stadium bunting?

    • Ballgame

      Bunting is the red, white and blue flag like banners that they string along the stadium for Opening Day and Playoff games.

    Also, the “last game” in the Stadium probably (hopefully) isn’t going to be the last game anyway. We’re making it to the playoffs, right?

    Although if we do finish 90-72, I would NOT want to be there for the last game w/ that hostile crowd. I can just imagine people sawing off the foul pole and stuff like that…

    My uncle has a piece of the center field wall in his office along with two seats and first base. Its the coolest effin thing ever. He said when they renovated he came ready and brought 3 of his friends and a moving truck.

      My dad’s got an old seat from the pre-renovated Yankee Stadium. My grandmother bought for him for something like $7 or $12. Nothing from the current stadium will be that cheap.

        $7.50 plus a few packs of Winston cigarettes, which were promptly discarded.

    The key will have to be a unified effort by all the fans at the end of the final game that way they cant stop everyone from stealing the shit.

    Hmm…I’ll be more than happy to take those revoked tickets. It would be a shame to let them go to waste. :D
