I have a post up today over at HarvardBusiness.org on the PR disaster that is the New Yankee Stadium. Mostly, I just had fun pointing out all their customer-facing mistakes, but I’m curious: if we were being proactive and constructive (instead of snarktastic) is there anything the Yankees could do at this point to appease their fed-up fanbase? (I mean, aside from beating the Red Sox, which I’m sure they will do…eventually.) What should they do?

    How about one game they pick one lucky fan out of the crowd to kick A-Rod in the nuts during the seventh inning stretch on behalf of all the fans. This will get the frustration out and who knows maybe they’ll stop booing him too.

  2. Sounds like they stole a page from the Nationals. Welcome to irrelevance in your own town, Yankees!

    Chris, I was going to go with free beer. But your idea works too.
