"The yankee front office doesn't care, most yankee fans don't care. Unless you were born in the bronx, I simply don't understand how anyone can root for this team."
I grew up in the Bronx. I was also a Pirates fan. Let me tell you something. It's much better to be a fan of a team that wants to win then the fan of a team that will never pay to keep even it's own star players. Go Yankees!

My friends and I went to see the Yankees play a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians. It was a memorable day, the kind of day you talk about forever. We were so young and it was so long ago that sometimes I question whether my memory was accurate. We were sitting near the player wives (did we sneak down?) and I remember Connie Bahnsen's expression when her husband Stan Bahnsen got into a fight. Did she even exist? Someone threw an ash can firework at catcher Ray Fosse. Tony Horton crawled back to the dugout after striking out on Steve Hamilton's folly floater. Did that really happen that day? It seemed everything happened in those two games. One thing that did happen, though it seems almost mythical, is that Bobby Murcer hit four home runs in a row that day. He may not have been Mantle. But he sure was a great Yankee.

What a country. The Feds can't lock up a guy who essentially committed treason by revealing the identity of a CIA agent. But they manage to nail Martha Stewart and now they're after Barry Bonds. It's a travesty. Who gives a big giant turd about this guy shooting steroids? No one seemed to care when Babe Ruth was boozing it up and nailing hookers two at a time. They're baseball players. Main question - can they play baseball? And Barry Bonds can. He should be playing. And the government should be chasing the folks who stole 9 billion dollars from taxpayers in Iraq.
