Third time's the charm?

Although I'm not much for cliches and things, it ended up that way when we played in the Bronx a couple weeks ago. We won the third game. Can you imagine what life would be like if we were in the AL East, and have to play the Yankees ad nauseum?

The glare off the skyscrapers is actually a nuisance tonight.

I lucked into 109 row 15 tonight, and was real impressed. The gradation issue wasn't much of a problem, good view straight ahead between pitcher mound and first base, just outside of the club level overhang. Yankee fans were making fun of Kubel's batting average!

Did they have anything to say after the game?

"You talk about the magic, the aura, but what really makes a stadium is the fans. Concrete doesn't talk back to you. Chairs don't talk back to you. It's the people who are there, day in, day out, that makes the place magic."

Plaza overview from the A ramp



An overview of the model display.


















A look at Gate 34.






No offense, TC, but you're pointing exactly the wrong direction if you want people to use the ramp opening to your right...






Um, I think that guy is out.



Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings









8:32 PM The glare is gone. Elapsed time: 1 hour (approximately 3 innings).



Concept drawing of Coomer gate (click to enlarge)












I had to hold the camera as far over my head as I could to get this shot, in which the infield is finally visible. It's a spot made for your average Timberwolves player.



I never think of Ron Jackson at all.






You have to wonder just what happened here. Will it remain forever embedded in cement?



This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.



Reasonable (if not overly generous) leg room






That's Noah and my brother, Chris, checking out the Loge Box amenities



Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.









Skywalk over Seventh, looking back toward the parking ramp



Wayfinding within the B ramp is still a work in progress.



Pesky Reality



The lone light standard and one of those "entry beacons."









Section 101, Row 34



OK, it doesn't really look like that at all...



Ballark Authority members listen to the LEED introduction



Seventh Street circulation






Construction of the stands is moving from left to right in this image.



View Level









Citi Field as viewed from Shea.
