Yankees Cancel Half-Assed Plans For Nov 9 Concert
The Yankees quietly admitted their half-assed, poorly planned idea for a concert at Yankee Stadium on Nov. 9 have been cancelled. This "secret" ceremony, which was news to most of the fans who shelled out big bucks to be at Yankee Stadium on its final day, was tossed out there as a fait accompli. It was gonna celebrate all of Yankee Stadium -- the boxing and Popes and football and everything else that happened there, not just the baseball -- and they casually tossed out names like Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney and Billy Joel as potential performers. Too bad no one told Springsteen or McCartney or Joel since none of them were remotely confirmed and when you're talking about people of that stature, you need to lock them in months if not a year in advance. I always found the idea annoying since it was so secretive and felt like a rip-off for everyone who went to that last game. So I'm glad their half-assed, shambling, incompetent plans fell apart.
