    YANKEELAND: In the Shadow of the Stadium

    This looks pretty cool. It's a new documentary about Yankee Stadium and the surrounding neighborhood. Its called "YANKEELAND: In the Shadow of the Stadium."

    The last game at the Old Yankee Stadium was played on September 22, 2008. Over the course of the final season there, fans came to pay their last respects to The Big Ball Orchard in the Bronx.

    The Yankees have played in the neighborhood for over 80 years. During much of that time, it has been one of the nation's poorest congressional districts. Few locals have become rich off the team, despite its wealth and storied tradition.

    But many make a living working in the shadow of the stadium. Some scalp tickets. Some sell sports memorabilia. Others run bars or restaurants or coach neighborhood little league teams.

    Most of them are Yankee fans. All of them have an opinion on the new stadium and what it means to the neighborhood that has experienced decades of turmoil and struggle, as well as dozens of world championship baseball teams.

    Yankee land is the story of the people who live and work around the old ballpark and the fans who visit it.

    Brian Cashman: [Pujols] is a special player. I dont know him personally, but I see what he does with that bat. Its Montero-like.

    I haven't read it yet, but why would they talk about the 'surrounding neighborhood' now? It's not like this stadium is in a different neighborhood than the old one...

    Anyways, I'll give it a read later.
