Speaking of Yankee Stadium
. . . The place seems gradually to be coming alive. You expect the Red Sox games to be, er, lively, but the Blue Jay games were packed as well and the crowd seemed really into the games. It was the first time this year where there were really spontaneous chants, including a loud and nearly on-key rendition of 'Happy Birthday' Tuesday when the scoreboard indicated it was Melky's birthday.
No one has chopped my ticket price in half or offered a free upgrade yet, but the sweet Italian sausages seem to have improved.
