The group gave more support to the Yankees than any other section I had sat in. From roll call, to the Bernie Williams cheer, the spirit in the Bleachers never wavered from having good-but-never clean fun in the name of the Yankees. I still remember many of the people I saw so often each summer - Tina, MTA Joe, Jimmy (R.I.P. dear sir), Sancho, Claire, Junior, Monica and many more, including a guy I only knew as "Face."
I got the chance to sit in the Bleachers again last Saturday afternoon when the Yankees lit up the Jays. I sat in Section 203, the new 39 according to ticket holders, with Dave and some new and old faces.
While we were flanked with families who had presumably purchased their tickets on StubHub, the antics were similar, if not a bit tame 'til the end of the game. Perhaps it was the exciting top of the game or that the rest of the game went fast, but good taunting didn't start happening until several of the Creatures banded together to tell Bautista what they thought of him. And his wife.
The aforementioned reworked "Y-M-C-A" was present and there were several chants of "asshole" at fans in the wrong jerseys so I am curious to see if the upcoming Friday night game I am attending will be even more like the 39 I remember. Even if it is exactly the same as on 7/3, I'm looking forward toanother incredibly fun time with amazing Yankees fans.
Until the 23rd, Section 203!
