The last season at the current Yankee Stadium begins this afternoon with a game against the Toronto Blue Jays. I can't be there, but my friend John Ricotta is going to three games this week.
John (center), with his bandmate Andrew D'Amato, and me in a Stadium luxury box for John's bachelor party, August 9, 2003. With Andy Pettitte opposing Gil Meche, the Mariners beat the Yanks, 2-1.
UPDATE (2:30 PM): Due to rain, today's game will be made up tomorrow night.
