Yankee Stadium


The Yankee Stadium will attract a different sort of crowd soon: the Pope and a Pope-listening audience.
Per the NY Times,
'The pope will straddle second base in Yankee Stadium, but stand over center field at Nationals Park in Washington. There are 100,000 ponchos on hand in the Bronx in case of rain, while three Polish nuns have dusted off a gold and silver garment, hand-woven more than a century ago, for the pontiff to wear at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in the capital.'

it's quite interesting to me that holy father would pick such a venue as the stadium to deliver the mass.i guess one goes where the people go, eh?
