The Yankees will have an announcement in the future regarding ticket availability for the general public. Notre Dame expects to make tickets available to its contributing alumni and fans through its alumni lottery as it does with all other football games. Army will receive an allotment of tickets as the visiting team.So, we'll see if Yankees season ticket holders do get a crack at pre-sale tickets in the coming months. The game is scheduled for November 20, 2010. Get your winter gear ready.
Some interesting news, via ESPN, apparently college football will be making its debut at Yankee Stadium next season:
We here at NSI can't wait until they offer out a season ticketholder pre-sale for this first ever college football game at Yankee Stadium. We'll simply flip the tickets for well over face value to one of the many well off, insufferable Notre Dame "subway alumni" who live in the NYC area and make a little money on the deal.*
Although the new ballpark is set up primarily for baseball, a football field will be set up with one set of goalposts near the Yankees dugout on the first-base side and the other set in left field.
Army and Notre Dame played each other at Yankee Stadium annually from 1925 to 1946, with one of the two schools being ranked No. 1 for each of the last four meetings at the famed baseball park. The most famous of those games probably was the 0-0 tie in 1946, when Army was ranked No. 1 and Notre Dame No. 2. The two teams last met at Yankee Stadium in 1969.
Sorry to offend any Domers who happen to read this site. We are as passionate about our Penn State Nittany Lions as we are about the Yankees, and the announcement of Charlie Weis lugging his fat ass around the field at Yankee Stadium is nothing short of sickening.
* We obviously won't do the same to an Army alum. They protect our freedom at home and around the globe.
