    Good stuff, Smasher. BTW, if any of you have a Getty Images account, there's about 60 photos up from this week of the new park.

    I'm looking forward to catching a game there in the future. Can't say the same about the Yankees' new palace.

    It will suck. [/did you expect anything else]

    Friend of mine went to CitiField yesterday... watched none of the game but simply toured every corner of the stadium and raved about the entire place.

    I'm disappointed they didn't do a giant scoreboard in the shape of Jay Horwitz's head.*

    Love Nathan's fries, although they probably cost $40 in a ballpark.

    That would have cost at least $550 million.

    Believe it or not, my friend said concession prices -- at least yesterday -- were the same or LESS than at Shea and definitely less than old Yankee ripoff prices.

    I was going to do the exact same thing. Great minds (also ours, apparently) think alike.

    Basically, all the new HOK stadiums are pretty much identical.

    They got rid of the 1970s ashtrays, and gave us a new set of 20 identical stadiums.

    The seat coloring, the scoreboards, and a little bit of the outfield trim work are a bit different, but otherwise, it's the same park.
