85 and no longer counting

Here are the pictures from Monday, September 15, when the Yankees took on the White Sox in the seventh-to-last game at Yankee Stadium.

No, they are not in order.

And yes,we know Sammie is wearing a Braves outfit. We had to represent the South a little bit.

Sammie claps happily. She liked it when everyone clapped.

Old facade, meet new facade.

Wide shot of the field and sold-out stadium.

DeWayne Wise, right before he hit a home run in the 4th inning.

6th inning, while Kim is walking with Alex around the stadium.

We don't look too exhausted, despite it being late.

Jason Giambi knocks a ball foul down the line.

Me, enjoying a coke. We were in the back of the main level.
At least the seats were covered, in case it rained.

Sammie likes hot dogs. A lot.

From the upper deck.

From our seats, right near the foul pole. Nice shot down the line, aside from the giant yellow pole.

Shooting down from the 4 train platform onto 161st Street.

Sammie wisely takes a nap before the game starts in Stan's.

Alfredo Aceves started for the Yankees. I have not heard of him.

Outfielders (from bottom) Bobby Abreu, Brett Gardner, and Johnny Damon.

4 train platform, with the new stadium rising in the background.

4 train platform after we got off the train.

Folks coming over from the river side into the plaza.

Pretzels make us happy.

From the loge level.

Yawn. I'm getting tired. I want to make noise or run around soon.

Soon after, Mo came in, and they got to make a lot of noise. End game shot of two Yankee legends - Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter, with two out in the 9th.

A fun and fond farewell.
