Yankee Stadium is playing host to at least 3 football games this winter while CityField lies dormant.
First in the BX was ND vs Army, a week from today will see the PSAL (Public School Athletic League) Champion crowned and Dec 30th is the Inaugural Pinstripe Bowl.
Incidentally the PSAL Championship game features Lincoln vs Fort Hamilton in an all Brooklyn Final.
BMF’s television project “City Gridiron” has been embeded with both Canarsie and Lincoln Varsity Football programs this season and I’ll be roaming the sidelines of the Championship game camera in hand.
City Gridiron Season II will see 13 episodes as opposed to the 2 hour film that runs on MSGVarsity. We haven’t settled on a home for broadcast yet but I’ll keep ya posted when that becomes official.
Meanwhile the Yankees get all the buzz and cache of hosting football games in December and the Mets stet nothing. And I can’t believe the turf will suffer that much.
I believe the yanks removed all infield grass and filled the gaping square patch with sod. Hey if they can donut so can we.
