It NEVER gets Old.

I don't care if the Yankees are as relevant as last years front page; anytime we can go into the Toilet and pull off a win I'm happy.

Tonight? We just might have pounded the final nail into the coffin that's the Yankee 2008 season.

7-3 and the bullpen made it seem closer than it was. Forget the fact that I'm pretty sure our 'pen, as currently constructed, will have a tough time making it past the first round. Tonight was all about beating the Yankees, dashing their fans hopes like some demented Santa Claus on crack and moving on.

I think we accomplished our primary goal, though a win tomorrow night by the Sox would firmly confirm it. The dinks from NY are on life support and one more big loss will write their off season ticket to golf courses, strip bars, and all you can eat buffets at Hooters courtesy of that one way ticket they deserve.

It doesn't matter how may team meetings at the mound, how many fillibusters from Hank Steinbrenner, or how many protested calls they make; the Yankee season is one out away from contacting Hospice and I can't tell you how happy that makes me feel.

Screw Pride, Tradition, and Joe Girardi acting like he's been there before; you've got a bad team going nowhere and I hope you choke on your tradition; welcome to reality. You, and your team suck this year.

Count your blessings and pray Cashman sells the farm for CC Sabbathia next year.

And I hope you enjoy the playoffs from the 19th hole.

I was thinking they'd be enjoying the playoffs from the country club bar.

Well worded, my friend.

Heheh...demented Santa Claus on crack. *snicker*

I like that one.

Me? I'm counting my blessings I'm not a Yankee Ballplayer right now. :)

Tex, we're on the same path, sis. Wherever they are, it won't be the playoffs.

Hey Bickley! And Edge, I think being a Yankee right now is baseball purgatory.

Honestly? All I care about is that Miss October is back in town:

Stats for A-Rod:
8th and 9th inning RBIs (2007): 31
8th and 9th inning RBIs (2008 thus far): 2
That's quite a discrepancy, if you ask me!

How about Masterson getting A-Rod out with the bases loaded behind him? And A-Rod bobbling a ball hit RIGHT TO HIM to load the bases full of Red Sox? Sure, we didn't score, but we didn't need to, because Mr. Not-So-Clutch is back in town.

This will probably come back to bite me in the ass, because A-Rod tends to do well on odd-years. Whatever. I'm enjoying myself very much now. And tomorrow I'll wear my favorite baseball shirt in his honor on the last day of our last away series with them:

"A-Rod: Mr. April, Miss October"

Thank you, A-Rod, for helping me to sleep easy last night. Hopefully your teammate Sidney Ponson will do the same for me tonight.

Sarah, Masterson was CLUTCH last night;that can't be an easy thing to do as a rookie and he looked like he had ice water in his veins.

Captain Clutch came through again, didn't he? What about Giambi double clutching on the ground ball? Good times in the Stadium last night.

Bro, I'm with you: it never gets old. For me, beating the Yanks is second only to another WS ring. Good times.

Mattie, how does 11-2 grab you?

Heh. As Dandy Don once sang "Turn out the lights, the parties over."
