March 31, 2008 will be the last Opening Day in the old Yankee Stadium. I've been to only one Opening Day game and its a different atmosphere. One akin to a school homecoming because people probably haven't seen each other at the games since the last play-offs. Tailgate parties were never my idea of fun because you get baked under the sun. But I did like walking up to the Upper Tier seats because you get a chance to catch a foul ball or even a home run ball.
I took this picture with the Yankees playing the Baltimore Orioles. I normally purchase tickets a few degrees to the left of home plate. It allows me to see the Yankee dugout. I always try to make sure I stay far in the back because I get a chance to see everyone. Sometimes there are jerk fans up in the stands so its best you know where they are. And in case of rain there's some protection. But it does awfully cold up there. My favorite Stadium food? Hotdogs (with Italian stuffings) of course and a soda.
