Some observations about the series:
- When New York was down, the PA folks played a song to encourage them. I may have been one of the few in the stadium to realize what it was: the finale to "Bring it On," a movie about cheerleading competitions. Hmmm....interesting choice, boys.
- There was very little fanfare for the 9/11 game. When I was there in years past, they had parachuters and eagles being released. Sunday's game was very subdued, though it was awesome to hear a few veterans introduced before the game
- The fierceness of the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry can eclipse even the emotion of the day. By the ninth inning, people were already growling at each other again
- After "God Bless America," I heard a chant from the audience, and thought it was "Yankees suck," a chant I thorougly dislike. I listened closer, and it was a few sections of combined Yankees and Red Sox fans shouting "USA! USA!" Funny how much it sounded like "Yankees suck." It was cool though.
- Speaking of cool, one side of Yankees stadium is about thirty degrees hotter than the other (sun side vs. shade side).
- Many people were chanting "Yankees suck" or "Red Sox suck." If you combine these, you can get any of the following:
Yank Sox suck
And my favorite: Rank Sox suck.
- It's great to have friends like Jeff and Dingo who you can call up after not speaking for a while and just go see a game.
- I realized the amount of dirt available on me at that game was very risky. Jeff and I were born three weeks apart and have been friends since the playpen. Dingo knew me in college. Waaaaaaay too much ilanaknowledge for my liking
- What starts off as a short list can grow much longer when you are procrastinating from reading software articles.
