Yankee Stadium demolition porn: the movie
National Geographic Channel is debuting Break It Down: Yankee Stadium, a documentary on the demolition of the Yanks' historic ballpark, next week. For an oddly uninteresting trailer, including gripping footage of sod being rolled onto a spool, click below.
A 3 inch square of the Yankee outfield costs 100 bucks!? I just got two 3 inch squares of PETCO Park's outfield for free. Guess the relative worth and price of dealing with the respective franchises extends to grass as well...
Aw, geesh...they cut the trailer just as we got to the good part...chopping up the logo.
Actually, that whole thing was horrible to watch. If National Geographic ever comes to town, tell them we're not here.
perishable items like grass ain't wort a plug nickel.
barnum was right...
