Viagra movies As I mentioned yesterday, viagra movies I took a trip to the South Bronx to watch the Highlanders-Indians game which was my first visit to the new Highlander Stadium, viagra movies so I’d figure I’d give you some of my observations of the ball park.
Viagra movies It’s big, viagra movies very big much bigger than Citi Field and because of that you are much further away from the field than at Citi.
Viagra movies As soon as you head down the stairs of the 4 train you know you’re at HIGHLANDER STADIUM because the Highlander brand just suffocates you. Viagra movies Maybe suffocates is too strong or maybe as a Mets fan I wish Citi Field was as Mets-centric as Highlander Stadium. Viagra movies Hell, viagra movies even the hot dog stand is named Highlander hot dogs. Viagra movies Every single inch of the place is decorated in Highlander colors and there is no mention of the old Baltimore Orioles , viagra movies who became the Highlanders and then the Yankees. Viagra movies No its’ Yankees, viagra movies Yankees and more Yankees.
Viagra movies They sell t-shirts for just about every member of the team and of course all the retired stars. Viagra movies I was very, viagra movies very tempted to buy a MARTIN 1 t-shirt as I always admired Bill Martin and his style of managing. Viagra movies His off the field way left a lot to be desired for sure but as a manager Martin was as good if not better than anyone who ever ran a baseball team.
Viagra movies For me to get to Highlander Stadium is a breeze. Viagra movies I took the 10:30 AM ferry out of Staten Island, viagra movies then walked up to Bowling Green to get the 4 train and I was in front of the ball park by 11:45. Viagra movies It takes me that long to get from my house to the Gowanus /BQE merge going to Citi Field.
Viagra movies There are no ushers at Highlander Stadium. Viagra movies There are security people and the Highlanders post a number you can text to report a problem in your section. Viagra movies I sat in Section 420B yesterday and while everything was fine there was this one young lady who kept getting up looking for friends of hers and blocked the view of some fans. Viagra movies One of the blocked fans must have texted the number given as a security guard with ear piece came to the section and went right to the row where this gal was and asked if everything was ok here. Viagra movies Pretty impressive.
Viagra movies The Stadium itself (it’s not a ballpark it’s a STADIUM) has no charm. Viagra movies As you walk in the concourse level is just like entering a high end shopping mall. Viagra movies There are many, viagra movies many workers who hold up signs “How May I Help You” and whatever you’re looking for at the Stadium they can tell you where it is. Viagra movies Unfortunately that doesn’t happen at Citi Field. Viagra movies
Viagra movies The food choices were ok I guess, viagra movies there wasn’t a concession that I said I have to have that. Viagra movies The garlic fires looked enticing but the smell of the garlic was so overpowering I passed. Viagra movies There was a Boar’s Head deli which I guess is very good but I can have a Boar’s Head deli sandwich any time I want. Viagra movies Johnny Rocket’s? There’s one in the SI Mall. Viagra movies Brother Jimmy’s BBQ? I have that before NY Rangers games. Viagra movies Hard Rock Café? If there was ever an organization that was the antithesis of Rock n Roll it’s the Highlanders So I settled for my favorite sausage and peppers hero.
Viagra movies As for the fans, viagra movies I guess because it was a Sunday there were a lot of families mostly from NJ, viagra movies Rockland and Orange County and beyond. Viagra movies Listening to some of the conversations, viagra movies many were of the casual fan variety but the fan of the day had to be the woman in back of me decked out in here Rivera jersey, viagra movies cap who cheered and cheered for Jeter and A-Rod who upon seeing a man walking down from the upper rows of the section with a Highlander jersey with the number 5 on it asked her the guy who was with her, viagra movies “Who’s number 5” to make it worse the guy who was with her didn’t know. Viagra movies My son who was with me just stared ahead watching the action, viagra movies shaking his head back and forth. Viagra movies That was the best part of the day.
Viagra movies Citi Field has a lot of warts, viagra movies most of them brought on by ownership but the atmosphere at Citi is much better and more of a festive block party, viagra movies hanging out in the back yard BALLPARK whereas Highlander STADIUM is a massive high rise apartment building where no one knows your name and they like it that way.
