Yankee Stadium No More?
I know that many baseball stadiums have succumbed to sponsorship pressures over the past decade, but I always thought Yankee Stadium was immune to those. With the loss of the name Yankee Stadium comes a loss of independence and a loss of sanctity. This will no longer be The House That Ruth Built -- it will be The House That Steve Jobs Bought. It's a sad day for Yankees fans.
I did some research and found that Citigroup paid $400 million for the naming rights to Citi Field so I'm sure $750 million was a pricetag the Steinbrenners couldn't turn down. I'm not going to boycott the Yankees or send hate mail to the Steinbrenners, but this just doesn't sit well with me.
Oh, and by the way....happy April 1st, people.
