Reduce, reuse and recycle, Canadian style.

July 14, 2008
  Jeff is spending the evening watching the home run derby and I learned that Yankee stadium is in its last year, it is 85 years old.  They are planning to replace it after this baseball season and are currently building a newer one in the adjacent area.  It will make the environment a lot better for the players and fans, I am sure.  In Seattle they built Safeco field to replace the Kingdome and it is a thing of beauty, with every seat having a great view and a retractable roof to boot.  At the same time many people are feeling a little sad that a piece of history is going to come down.  Click here to read Yankee stadium history
  This year BC place stadium celebrated it’s 25th anniversary and there are plans to upgrade the roof to make it retractable after the Olympics in 2010. Commenwealth Stadium in Edmonton, just celebrated it’s 30th anniversary.  I know they have a ways to go to reach 85 years, but Canada has a stadium that is still being used for football that beats that at the ripe old age of 94 years in Montreal.  Click here to read the history of Percival Stadium  Talk about reducing reusing and recycling!
