Yankee Stadium is our Roman Coliseum, our sports Louvre, our Delphi. So why are people planning to steal from it?

Because they should. They must! The cathedral of baseball has a date with bulldozers at the end of this season before the new Yankee Stadium (ugh) opens in 2009.

That means next week's All-Star game sets up as a kind of Final Viewing, and, like any good funeral, grievers will be trying to slide a wristwatch or a set of cufflinks off the corpse on the way by. This might turn into a pickpocket convention: armrests, pieces of fašade, maybe even turnstiles will go missing. Even normally upright citizen Derek Jeter says he's going to steal something before this season ends. "When it's gone," Jeter says, "they're going to come after me."

I would sure as hell steal from Wrigley if they were going to knock it down. I can probably stand under some concrete and catch a souvenir. I would make sure I get grass, dirt, and ivy. Are the auctioning seats? They totally should. I would buy one from Wrigley.

I hope I die before Wrigley is eventually taken down. Or they find a way to preserve it forever.
