Smithtown students ask questions, Yankee Stadium comes down
Sorry for lack of blogging the past 24 hours. Left basement for a good cause:
To speak to a group of high school students from Smithtown East and West with an interest in sports, sports business and/or sports journalism.
I've spoken to many school groups, but these guys and gals (and their teachers) were the most interested and engaged I ever have encountered.
Good news for America's future!
Afterward I made a rare appearance at headquarters in Melville, where the parking lot seemed less full than it was in the 1980s.
Then on to the Islanders-Rangers game. Sure, the Rangers sleepwalked through parts of the game - especially the first period - but I was struck by the lack of energy and venom in the audience for the two old rivals.
So, what did I miss Wednesday? Baumbach has some cool pictures of old Yankee Stadium coming down (and a story about it) here.
Other than that, not much, apparently. Tiger made the front cover of the Post for the 19th consecutive day.
