The Yanks ARE COMING!! SO ARE THEIR FANS!!!#*#*#
Fellow 320's--MickNats and I attended the New York Yankees/Baltimore Orioles game on Saturday Afternoon at Camden Yards. There was a sellout crowd of 48,195 in attendance. But what was really stunning was the amount of Yankees Fans at the park. THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE HOME GAME FOR THE YANKS!! It is no exaggeration that at least 25,000 were rooting for NEW YORK. It may even have been 30,000. Our section down the left field line had about 5 others rooting for the O's beside Mick and I. The Orioles have a few less season ticket holders than the Nationals 16,000. Since only single seats are now available for all three Nationals/Yankees games at RFK in 2 weekends, you can bet RFK and the Nationals Fan Base is going to be challenged mightily for the weekend series.
The Mets have outragously ugly fans, but the Yankees might even be more smug and worse. Its going to be interesting!! Hope we can shut them up for 2 out of 3 games.
