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.

Yankee fans are feeling good because they know there is something there this year that has been missing the last few seasons. They seem to be enjoying playing baseball instead of just going to work and performing their jobs. Hopefully the change stays but there is a lot of baseball yet to be played but I'm liking it so far.....Chris.....

I think you're onto something there.

I was also going to mention that the seats that are consistently filled are the less expensive ones.

I'd say cheap seats, but since we're talking about Yankee Stadium, that would be a gross contradiction in terms.
