I just got back from my first Yankees game. The stadium is beautiful. Very "old baseball," just like Dodger Stadium. It definitely made me miss Chavez Ravine. The Yankees lost the game, and everyone I was with said, "I'm sorry the Yankees lost for your first game!" Um, as a Dodgers fan, I could not have asked for a better outcome! Ha. Before and after the game, we grabbed a quick beer at Stan's across from the bleachers. It was a beautiful day for a ball game: the weather was warm, the beer was cold, and the Bronx was celebrating the return of baseball.
