RAB’s parade meet-up details

By

RAB parade meetup location

You see that little star? That’s where we’re going to meet-up for the parade tomorrow. Specifically, it’s the northwest corner of the Beekman and Nassau Street intersection. Here’s the map so you can zoom in and stuff. Joe and I are shooting to get there around 8:30-9 a.m., but you’re welcome to come whenever.

The parade comes right up Broadway, so we’ll have to finagle our way over to get a good luck. I’m not 100% certain, but I believe they’ll set up a big screen in City Hall Park to show all the speeches and stuff. After the parade and stuff, we’re probably going to go grab a bite to eat somewhere, and everyone’s more than welcome to come. Leave any suggestions or anything in the comments.

If you want to come and hang out and watch the parade, email Joe or me, and we’ll exchange cell numbers to coordinate. If you do that tomorrow, e-mail Joe because he has the BlackBerry.

Also, if anyone has a better spot, let us know via e-mail and we’ll update plans.

    Get there earlier guys, and get a spot on the street at least 2 hours in advance. If not, you’ll be so far back you won’t see shit.

    But if that’s the case, walk over to City Hall for the key to the city ceremony. They’ll have a big screen so you can see everything no matter where you are.

  • Johnnyboy

    I’ll be cutting school for this!!!

    Also, Mike. May I ask a favor? Can you make a thread sometime listing every person that was on the Yankees 25 man roster at some point this season? I would like to see who gets a ring for the 09′ season.

      Just look at their stat page, that has everyone listed:

        Claggett was sooo bad.

      • Thomas

        Don’t forget Stephen Jackson. He has no stats.

        • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

          Yes, but he warmed up in the bullpen at least twice.

      Yeah, some guys who did little will get rings. But so do scouts, front office types and a bunch of other people who never played a single game. There’s nothing wrong with that, and too much is made of it.

      • Bryan

        So does IPK get a ring for his 1 inning of work? That was a tough inning getting out of a bases loaded jam against the Angels in late September, he earned it.
        Or how about Michaal Dunn, Josh Towers, Angel Berroa?

        My fave pic from last night Swisher fell on his head. I hope there’s video evidence of this somewhere :)

  • VO

    Where is a good spot to watch the parade from? I have very little knowledge about this stuff as it will be my first parade and tips?

    Turns out I can’t make it, guys. :(

    • Mike Pop

      Looks like a lot of people care…

  • Count Zero

    I should be into Grand Central 6:47 — downtown before 7:30.

    Gonna start by trying to get a spot closer to the park, but if the crowd is already heavy we’ll work our way closer to start of the route.

    Would be cool to get a bite and a couple of beers after.

  • Greg G.

    Man, I wish I could be there.

    To all who are going: take pictures, and post ‘em. I want to live vicariously.

    I wish I could be there but the plane from KC to NY would cost me way too much. Please guys, post tons of pictures.

  • Peedlum

    Is it going to be televised? Anyone know where I can get an internet feed?

      I’m pretty sure it’s streaming for free on mlb.com or mlb.tv

  • http://mvn.com/pendingpinstripes Greg F.

    I’ll be getting there around 8:00. Going to take the 4 to Wall street and look for a spot there. If I don’t see anything good I’ll be sure to shoot Joe an email and try to coordinate.

  • Derby

    Dammit! I wish I wasn’t in Tampa going to school!

  • larryf
