Boy, Bruce is dealing today. I serve this one up without comment, Quote of the Day-style:
Aside from building a deeply flawed ballpark that has done nothing but embarrass upper management (absurd ticket prices, right field playing like a Little League park, you name it), the Yankees play a loud, ominous-sounding siren — suggesting air raids, car wrecks or a house on fire — when one of their players hits a home run. Who thinks of these things? I’m sure it calls up some great memories for people who associate sirens with the most tragic moments of their lives. Then again, it has been that way for years at Yankee Stadium. You go there expecting class and sophistication, and you get the loudest, most juvenile marketing nonsense imaginable, an overbearing assault on the senses. Hard to believe such a regal structure is run by idiots . . .
