This Is Nice...

Hello again...Peter here...and this news blurb caught my attention...

"The House That Jeter Built has a new sign that unmistakably promises great baseball will be played there.
The words "Yankee Stadium," solidly etched in gold-leafed stone, were hoisted by crane onto the team's new South Bronx home this week.
And now there's rock-solid proof that unlike countless other sports teams that have given up stadium-naming rights to big corporations, Yankee tradition is not for sale."

Peter again. And you know what? No matter what the stadium is called, it's still the home of the Pinstriped Yankees. I wish them the best. And I'm happy they did not sell out!

You have to give them credit for tradition. Could you imagine the Yankees playing in a place called Bank Of America Field, or wearing turquoise jerseys? No. Likewise for our Sox. That's why these two teams are the best.

Sul, I can't even imagine what Fenway Park would sound like with a company's name in front of it...same for the House That Ruth built. And that's good. I hope you are well.

I Know what will Happen:

The Naming Rights For The INSIDE of YS, is where the Money's made;

Currently, The Canon Copier Bleachers is in effect in Old YS, as is the "Lowe's Broadcast Booth";

A Japanese Newspaper in Japan, sponsors the RF Stands, while Cablevision's "I-O Digital Cable" sponsors somewhere else there;

The SONY Stadium Club Bar & Restaurant, so while the Outside isn't Sponsored, The INSIDE is WHERE The Money is;

The "EMC Club" & "State Street Pavilion" are Inside Fenway Park;

Selling The Inside is where The Money is;

I think that NEWS Corp, owners of The NY Post & FOX, have Naming deals INSIDE of Yankee Stadium. I know of their Arrangements, right now, with The Yankees
