As Yankee and Shea Stadiums both come to a close, the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports that hardcore fans are looking for keepsakes. And we’re not talking about a picture at the game or a overpriced souvenir soda cups.
Apparently, these fans have been listening to Rick Reilly and taking whatever isn’t nailed down. Among the pieces stolen is outfield bunting and a toilet seat from Yankee Stadium. I just hope that fan didn’t try to steal the toilet seat during the singing of “God Bless America”: he’d be in real trouble for sure then.
One question: how exactly do you plan on sneaking a toilet seat out of Yankee Stadium? It’s not exactly something you can slide under your shirt. And even if you could, would you really want to? Hope you also smuggled in a gallon of disinfectant as well.
Fans have also tried to steal seats from Shea Stadium. Which is shocking, since they are selling them to fans for the bargain basement price of just $869 a pair, making them a “steal” for somebody. Or at least a “rip-off.”
