BOO OF THE WEEK: YANKEE STADIUM STAFF

If you are a sports fan and grew up in the New York City TV area in the '70s and '80s you are familiar with sportscaster Warner Wolf.

Wolf pioneered much of the "schtick" you see on sports casts today.

Things like "plays of the week" and added vocal enhancements as "Swish!" for a basket, "Boom, there it goes" for a home run and his famous "lets go to the video tape " and Give me a break!" were staples of Wolfs nightly reports.

Another phrase Wolf coined was "Boo of the week." This went to someone in the sports world that did something ridiculous.

So in that spirit, I present the 1st ever "NYYU Boo Of The Week" to the New York Yankees stadium staff.

Last night during the 2 1/2 hour rain delay, some stadium personnel told fans that the game was rained out!

Soon after those fans left the stadium, they found out the game was still on!

However, fans who left under false pretenses, were not allowed back in, with the stadium personnel citing the Stadiums No Re-entry Policy!

The Brothers Stein need to rectify this.

BOOO!

Warner Wolf is currently heard daily on the "Imus In The Morning" radio program.
