I am sure both games will be sellouts. The Yankees are not back in town until the end of next week.

I am not but got this em from yankees.com so I thought I would pass it on. Football is coming back to Yankee Stadium including college. Soccer has become very popular in the U.S. thus the big venue.

Don't like either team (root for West Ham in the prem and Lyon in the French league). I hope there's a huge turn out. I'd guess most of the crowd will be in Blue

That can't be good for the outfield grass. Are they re-sodding after the soccer games? Are the football games to be played after the baseball season is over (i.e. November)?

Baseball games in Oakland in the late summer/fall are always an adventure due to the chopped up field. Hopefully the Yankees will not experience the same.

I am sure its figured in the equation. The Yankees will find out next Friday when they play the Redsox.
