A Damn Yankee Shame! 9-13-08

Big Angry Man tells me to stay the hell away from talking about baseball. I certainly don't know enough about it. But I can't help it as I sit here trying desperately to write my entry on my interview with TV 55's CJ Papa, but watching the Yankee game.

I have to be a Yankee fan in this house, I have no choice. But it's pretty easy to be a Derek Jeter fan. So how painful it is to watch his frustration as the Yankees are heading into the worst season ending in 12 years.

This will probably be the first year in his career that Jeter will not be playing baseball in October. And THAT is just one DAMN SHAME!! But at least he's on target to setting his final record at Yankee Stadium for hits as that seems to be the only thing Yankee fans have to cheer about this afternoon.

Maybe tonight's game of the double header will be better. Or maybe it will just be more pain.

I feel for you Derek. I really do!

Now... I gotta get back to Hockey writing... before my husband finds out about this! Doh!

I can't wait for next year (I have CC and Sheets thoughts in my future!)...But in all seriousness my wife and I are going next Sunday and sadly its likely the last game ever at Yankee Stadium. Kinda funny how this year has gone and if things end the way they appear we may finish 4th! Yuck! It will be great though to kick the snot out of Baltimore for the final game! We got tickets in the upper tier for less than $200 which wasnt too bad (if anyone else is interested?) http://www.esellout.com/ResultsGeneralAtVenue.aspx?kwds=New+York+Yankees&venid=68
At least Hughes got the call up after the AAA playoffs, it would be a nice way to salvage his season with a couple good appearances heading into the offseason either as a part of Yankees future lure OR in a potential trade! LET'S GO YANKEES!

Being a baseball fan is not about making the playoffs every year. It's about surviving the disappointments so the triumphs are that much sweeter. That's how the rest of us live. An entire generation of Yankee fans can finally learn this!
