Re: Miracles Do Happen- Look What The Yankees Just Did

April 29 2009, 4:25 PM 

I don't hate the team (well, maybe a player or two wink.gif , just the owners and the organization. There are players on that team I like quite a bit. (I gave Posada a standing O on opening day--no one deserved to hit the first home run in that park more than him.)

The only thing that will make the organization miserable (apart from losing a bundle of dough, but that ain't gonna happen) is for the team to lose. So that's what I'm rooting for.

Tearing down the real Yankee Stadium for purely mercenary reasons is, to me, unforgivable.

I was hoping they were going to turn it into a kids park. Would be quite fitting but I haven't heard what they are going to do with the property. It does stink to tear it down but time goes by and things change. Could have been worse... they could have moved to Manhattan. Just staying up there is a feat in itself.

Maybe if I threaten to move to Jersey I can get the taxpayers to subsidize my mortgage for me.

Then I'll finally be able to afford those Yankee tickets. wink.gif

We often wonder how grown men (and women) can hate a baseball team. You can hate a serial killer
or a terrorist or even a left wing Commie Journalist like Rachel or Keith...but hating a baseball team
seems to be a bit above and beyond.

We have been life long Yankee fans since we were 5 years old. In that time the Yankees have won ten world
series and provided us with thousands of hours of joy and countless memories.

We have bonded at Yankee games, made great friendships; won major multi-million dollar clients; and even had
a few romantic moments.

Whether it was the Mick, Yogi, Moose, Whitey, Ron, Bobby, Derek Casey, Ralph or Joe...they all did their best. Money aside
the fans came first. They taught us the importance of winning.

Whilst the Steinbreners were aggressive in their prices (our tickets have gone up 1200% in the past 6 years), they have invested
in the team; they do making winning the priority and they are certainly the most famous sports team in history.

The Yankees have always been the object of jealously and envy...but they have also been a symbol for elegance and grace on the field
and unending commitment to excellence.

We are disappointed that the Nutty Associate Professor puts so much energy into hating the Yankees. Perhaps, when he is gone to that" classroom
in the sky" Robert Edward Auctions will have a special section in their Spring 20-- catalog- "The Yankee Hater Collection." That, indeed, would
be true American Justice.

As long as we stay away from going further in depth on Bruce's "romantic moments" at the Stadium I think we'll be OK here.

Dave,
Don't read too much into it...it was a romantic moment with an extremely rare e126 American Caramel in PSA 8. And don't worry...everything was slabbed.

Dorskind, you really are a jerk.

(Oops. I meant to type "joke." But, what the hell. We all make mistakes.)

"Multi-million dollar clients" my ass. Hell, you don't even have an office.

"thousands of hours of joy and countless memories"? That's what a family provides. Of course that's something you wouldn't know.

"We have bonded at Yankee games... and even had a few romantic moments." With whom? Five-fingered Mary?

Bruce,

You seem to have a shallow understanding of the word "hate", especially considering that, less than 2 weeks ago you were emailing me death threats.

Buy a mirror blowhard.


Edited to add: Dorskind romantic moments at the old Stadium are reason enough to tear it down.

I was wondering about those romantic moments too...are the Yankees still letting fans make out in the back of the bleachers?

Hey go Red Sox happy.gif

I had to get that in on this thread but you have to respect that the Bombers are trying and will continue to try just like the Sox did for 86 years.
