Fenway Park isn't just for baseball, Big Air freestyle competition in Boston Feb 2016

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Fenway Park in Boston is a baseball stadium known for the Green Monster.  But in Feb 2016, white snow was the important color, not green grass.  Fenway Park was the venue for the first ever USSA Big Air competition.  Looks like the athletes and the audience had a great time!

Wait I thought it was at Fenway, you're saying it's going to be at Yankee Stadium now? :duck:

It already happened. And Yankee Stadium is a soulless monstrosity that opened in 2009. Any claim to greatness the Yankees had for their facility died when they tore down the House that Ruth Built.

That is true. I don't think I've been to a game at the new Yankee stadium. I went to a handful of games at the old Yankee stadium out in the right field bleachers. Went to a Yankees-Red Sox game in late August one year and my great uncle came along who was a Sox fan. We somehow convinced him that he'd be perfectly fine wearing his Red Sox jersey to the game. He was terrified the entire subway ride from Brookyln up into the Bronx and spent most of the game almost in the fetal position trying to hide his shirt.  My grandfather was at the original Yankee Stadium in 1958 when they set the attendance record of 123,707 (not for a baseball game though). I will give you that the new one just doesn't have the same aura as the old Yankee Stadium.

I watched the competition from Fenway when it aired, and I kept thinking that for the amount of building and snow making that was required for a single big air jump, it probably wasn't worth doing very often. It was kind of neat to see it in the city like that though.

 

And... c'mon. Everybody knows that PNC Park in Pittsburgh is actually the best, and the east coast media NY/Boston bias is all that keeps everyone from recognizing that.

no cooler place on the planet to watch a game than on Waveland and Sheffield.
