Speaking of BRIAN's SONG, a friend of mine was the extra who played a little girl who got picked up and put on a doctor's examining table somewhere in the film -- I haven't seen the movie in years, and yes I cried.
Obviously I am avoiding the thought of season-ending losses, of which the Yankees, my team, have had too many. 2004 is not to be spoken of except in the company of the like of the 2000 presidential election.
I will be glad when most of the team is homegrown again. It's just too painful to write about, especially because of all those pitchers we have given away. Loaiza, for instance. And look what we did to Bernie, and adopted family-members David Wells and Tino Martinez. I hope we find a way to let Wells retire as a Yankee.
Remember, if the Yankees could buy a World Series winning team, they would. It's not about the money. It's about a lot of things, but not the money alone.
Maybe someday I will write about growing up in LA, not knowing from Brooklyn, knowing only about losing to Reggie's Yankees, and leaving town for good in Sept. 1981. Oh, and not watching baseball for almost 15 years after that. Couldn't.
