Since I couldn’t shoot up to New York to see the Yankees home opener at their brand-spanking-new stadium, I sent
my buddy Stiletto Sports Special Correspondent, Chris to capture some great footage.
Well, okay….so really, he was going to the home opener for his own pleasure and he put his pics on Facebook so I poached them! But details, details…I prefer to think of him as on on-scene correspondent much like Erik was with his March Madness Final Four coverage from Detroit.
Either way, the pictures are fantastic!
The game, on the other hand, not so much. Yankees lost 10-2. Not exactly like the original Yankees Stadium Opening Day in 1923, was it?
