Stealing from the stadium


Prior to Sunday evening’s game, the Yankees announced stringent security measures in place for would-be vandals. Today, the AP reported that 18 fans were arrested for taking pieces of the Stadium on Sunday night. All things considered, 18 arrests out of over 54,000 fans reflects well on the crowd. Despite the circumstances, Yankee fans were remarkably well behaved on Sunday night.

    not that i encourage vandalism, but whenever i look at footage of chambliss’ home run or the disco demolition fiasco at comiskey or the mets clinching the division in 86, i feel nostalgia for the days when people still had enough empowerment to go ape-shit in the face of authority

    public life is a little too ordered these days

    18 were caught. Who knows how many more got away with it?

      Caught doing what? Ripping up a few seat numbers or stealing paint chips? One more reason to hate the organization and the way they treat fans.
