More on the Yankees

So, my last post was a little congratulatory quip to the New York Yankees, for winning their 27th World Series Championship. (Their 27th; I know, it's a lot!) In the title of that post, I accidentally juxtaposed two characters in my haste to get the thing online, and I was…

Twenty Seven

The title says it all. Congratulations to the New York Yankees!…

Your (sic) so Gay! (or, Baseball Fan Intelligence as Expressed in Facebook Status Messages)

I knew this would be a fun World Series, with two teams I like in there, and a good matchup to boot. With a large percentage of my Facebook friends hailing from the Philadelphia area, I detected a certain bias toward the Lesser League's team in the growing wave of…

Yankee Pride

Came across this gem on YouTube, some video of a guy walking around in Section 39 at Yankee Stadium with a Red Sox jersey on, and the loving Yankee fans telling him exactly what he is for doing so. Gotta love those Yankee fans... Sox Fan in the Wrong House…

So What.

Nyea nyea ne nyea nyea, Boston won, the Yankees lost. Ha! To the smug faces of New England, I say: “eh, so what.” That’s what we do. You beat the Yankees? So what. Avenged your 2003 Game Seven meltdown? So what. Absolutely hammered our pitchers, sent…
