    With everything they bombard fans with on the jumbotron, the Yankees sure don't treat the game as if it's less in need of gimmicks than anywhere else.

    It's fun to be at Y-M-C-A. Yeah, the Yankees aren't above cheesy.

    I think it's stupid, but I also think the people, mostly in the bleachers, who think that it's their duty to put a stop to it look much more stupid. The guy who turns around and then runs around the section telling everyone not to participate misses way more of the game than the people who do the wave. It's a baseball game, people can do what they want.

    I don;t know why that stuck but trust me I'm not a fan of that either. I think the bleacher chants during that time are great, if they are allowed to anymore.

    I didn't say I participated. I don't. I personally like to sit down and not stand up and down 5/10 times and wave my arms.....my point was it's not a big deal (to me) and a lot of people like it, especially kids.

    Being distracted by an ad or playing the great subway race between innings is different than doing the wave while the actual game is going on.

    I don't see how standing up for a few seconds is particularly distracting, or any more gimmicky that anything else that goes on at games. (And since it's purely done by the fans, as opposed to being imposed on the crowd by the screens, speakers or grounds crew, I think it could be considered less gimmicky).

    It is a big different.


    For those who likes doing the wave - please get your tickets and make sure you sit right behind me. Let me know how you feel when I stand and watch the rest of the game.


    I have done this in the past with friends. (We didnt participated in the wave). After the wave was done with, all 8 of us just stood up and do our own wave - back and forth and back and forth and back and forth.


    Finally, someone from behind got annoyed and told the group to sit down - a smart ass in the group replied "Now you see how stupid the wave is."

    It seemed out of place to me at the old stadium. At this one, it seems to be a good fit.

    I can assure you no guy runs around the bleachers. In 203 its a known fact we stop the wave, no need for it in the ballpark IMO.

    Well I suppose after you make your way through the museum and mall and actually find the baseball game going on, the wave is a fitting thing to see. After all you spent all that dough to get there, get in and maybe eat. So why not waste your time jumping out of your seat in a synchronized fashion. Makes sense to me!

    I remember a time or two in the old stadium where the fans had the wave going. By the time it made its way around to the bleachers, it came to a screaming halt. In fact, by the time it started up again, we in the bleachers responded in unison by flipping the bird all at once and chanting "F*** the wave."

    But as long as it doesn't disrupt my view of the game, it doesn't bother me so much anymore. I'm too lazy to participate, but you bought your ticket to the game, do what you want...

    You are soooo right. OYS felt like a real ballpark, as opposed to the NYS, which feels like a combo of a theme park and a really big version of Tiffany's.

    I really hate taking shots at the stadium. I was even all for getting a new one. But I just really do not enjoy being there as much as I used to. I honestly would rather be at a friends house hanging out and watching on a 70 inch tv.

    And there is no wave on the couch.

    I feel like I'm in the minority in that I love the new stadium. The only things I miss about OYS are a) the fact that it kept crowd noise in better and b) that Monument Park was much more visible. Otherwise, I love NYS.

    There's no reason to not love it. If I could afford to attend a lot games I would probably feel differently. I just really miss walking down that dark hallway to see the green field, the lights, the entire atmosphere. Not to say what they have now isn't cool. I like being able to see the game while waiting on line for food. I like the clean bathrooms. But overall the Yankee experience I had before no longer has the same impact as it once did. Maybe over time it will. But as of now I'm disappointed. Especially since they shove the success and history down your throat at every turn. I get it, the franchise kicks ass. We all know that. Everyone who goes there knows that. It's a bit overboard, but just my opinion.

    I love how much easier it is to get in and out of the Stadium, the bathrooms are much quicker, and the food is a vast improvement. Otherwise I find nothing to love about the Stadium itself. It's just a place, and I go there because the Yankees play there. Nothing else about it is special or beautiful or particularly interesting.

    I think people are dissapointed by the place because it doesnt stand out like San Francisco, Pittsburgh and even Baltimore do. I've been to all three of those and they are by far the best three IMO. But lets remember we're in the South Bronx here....in terms of creating great views behind the stadium (like those three do with the Bay, the Pittsburgh skyline/Allegheny River/Clemente bridge and the warehouse in Baltimore) there wasnt anything to work with.

    NYS in the same group w/Citi and Nationals Park for me in terms of the new stadiums I've seen. I've also seen Progressive Field, SkyDome, Tropicana Field and Petco Park. They are all great (well except Tropicana which is the worst stadium I've ever been to...even worse then Shea, Veterans Stadium and Olympic Stadium) but dont have that "something extra" that makes them stick out like my Top 3 do. It doesnt make them bad places though. OYS I loved obviously for nostalgia reasons. Lots of great memories there and alot of history, but the stadium itself was nothing special at all. I'm more then content with NYS...just my opinion though.

    The neighborhood has nothing to do with it. NYS was built as a playground for the rich. Take the facade/frieze off the top its no different than any other ROK designed split upper deck cookie cutter.
