It's Hanky Time for Yankee Stadium today.  The tributes just keep a comin.  Yesterday, Paul Simon had a piece about the old place in the New York Times, today, it's Henry Kissinger's turn.  Also in the Times, comes memories from Billy Crystal, Robert Creamer, Jane Heller, and B-Girl Penny Marshall.

Here is Maury Brown's ode to the cathedral, as well as Alan Sepinwall's memories.   

Read em and weep.

"A vegetarian. Holy cow."
Damn, the Paul Simon thing is a keeper for me. Him and Bernie are two of my biggest, dearest heroes. The two of them standing together in centerfield, gazing around the Grand Canyon of baseball together - that blows my mind (for lack of a better phrase).

2 "Circuit clout" is a phrase that deserves a comeback.

Thanks for that post, Jon.
