Stadium demolition porn alert: “House of Steinbrenner” airs Sept. 21

For those who haven’t gotten enough of images of the demolition of Yankee Stadium, Barbara Kopple’s documentary “The House of Steinbrenner” debuts Tuesday, Sept. 21 on ESPN, and promises previously unseen footage of this spring’s carnage. Writes Richard Sandomir in the New York Times:

Kopple said that she received access from the city to film the stadium’s destruction, which the rest of the news media had to observe from rooftops and the subway platform.

She shot the upper deck being torn down, the seats being removed and Derek Jeter’s locker being taken apart — and the emotion of longtime team employees like Debbie Nicolosi as a beloved stadium died to give life to one that cost more than a billion dollars to build.

According to Sandomir, these are the only parts of the film worth watching. If you like, you know, that sort of thing.
