Memories of the Old Yankee Stadium

Today was my last game at Yankee Stadium. After 10 years of Saturday season tickets I have accumulated a few memories of the greatest sports venue in history. To celebrate the Stadium I thought I would share my favorite of them with you. The memory that I cherish the most is game 5 of the 2001 World Series. In the 9th Scott Brosius hit a wondrous home run in the 9th to send the game into extra innings. When the ball cleared the fence the stadium went CRAZY. Under my feet I could feel the stadium shaking up and down. I hugged 4 dudes and slapped five with the whole section. In extras the rookie, Soriano, got the game winning hit. I have been to many thrillers, like todays game, filled with walkoffs and heroics. I have been going to this stadium since birth and it is hard to believe that it will be gone next year. Yankee Stadium has been my favorite place in the world my whole life and it hard to see it go.
