Jason is about as objective as it comes in the Yankee blogosphere, so it comes as no surprise that his review of Yankee Stadium — following his first-ever visit there yesterday — is tough but fair. Many of the comments echo those heard in every city that has gotten a new park in the past 15-20 years: nice, comfortable, but a suggestion that it’s maybe too comfortable somehow. Jason kind of sums it all up with this humdinger, characterizing the transition from Yankee Stadium v1.1 to v2.0:
It was a rebel bad-ass that got married, had his hair cut, leather jacket donated to the Salvation Army, and fitted in a pair of pressed chinos and an oxford. Just not quite the same.
In other news, I now feel vicariously poorer after reading Jason’s description of how much everything cost. Dear Lord.
