NY Yankees' Opening Day "Rained Out" On A Dry Monday

The good news was that the Phantom scored some good tickets for today's 1pm Opening Day at Yankee Stadium.
The bad news is that the New York Yankees canceled the game before it started, because the bright lights in the front office heard that the storm of the century was barreling up the East Coast.

Only the rain never came. And nine hours later, the rain still has not arrived. They could have played a doubleheader, with a rock concert between games if that's what they wanted to do.

North of the old Yankee Stadium, the new Yankee Stadium nears completion. Double-click this photo, and look very closely through the white at the roof of the new stadium...the rooftop frieze that graced the old stadium will be the new stadium's best feature.

So, if you go to a Yankee game this year, you can see actually see two Yankee Stadiums. (photo taken from stairs leading up to the No. 4 train )
