I saw the New York Yankees play in the old Yankee stadium back in 2001. To be honest with you, I didn't understand what was happening. I ended up walking around the stadium soaking up the history of the place.
Famous boxing matches were held there, including Joe Louis v Max Schmeling, Tony Zale v Rocky Graziano, Sugar Ray Robinson v Gid Gavilan, Rocky Marciano v Ezzard Charles, and Muhammad Ali v Ken Norton to name a few. That place had so much character. Everybody else was too interested in seeing some guy called Derek Jeter.
I went to Los Angeles in 2005 and wanted to see the LA Dodgers, but I was advised by the staff of the hotel I was staying not to go to the game as bad things happen in the area around the stadium after the game when it gets dark. Apparently south LA is a rough place, I didn't think it was too bad to be honest. The place that made me feel uneasy was the Bronx in New York. Gangs of guys literally on every corner staring at you, it was like a scene out of the Warriors getting the train there. Thinking about it now, I wasn't doing myself any favors walking around with an expensive camera around my neck looking like a tourist.
