Yankees New Bronx Digs Formally Revealed

The Yankees, losers of the 2003, 2001, '81, '76, '64, '63, '60, '57, '55, '42, '26, '22 and '21 World Series, unveiled the retro new stadium design yesterday that had been floating around for the better part of the last few months. Let's see: the new Yankee Stadium, just across 161st Street from the current Yankee Stadium, looks pretty much the same, albeit with a few classic touches. Yankees prez Randy Levine provided the breath of fresh air: "It became evident over the past several years - not just in New York - that a public subsidy was not going to happen. We can afford it, and we can make the commitment." What a novel concept. The roll call begins in 2009.
