***EDITED TO NOT MAKE ME LOOK LIKE SOME WHINING ********
Am I mad? Yeah. Am I sad? Rightfully so. The Yanks played like **** today, and you can tell that they didnt want it. I guess they were more concerned with playing golf in the offseason, and not focusing on the task at hand. Heads will roll, and I would expect nothing less than a shakeup in the Yankees organization, and for things to change. And it cant come soon enough.
Am I going to stop being a fan? No. I have loved this team since I was a kid. But now I know how fans of the Cubs, Red Sox, and up until this year, The Mets. This has made me love the Yankees more, and I would go to bat for these guys anytime. But something has to change, and it has to be drastic.
Despite this, I am still a Yankee fan, through and through. I take the good and the bad, and although there has been alot of bad lately, I will continue wearing my Yankee fitted, my road and home jerseys, my RIP RED SOX 2006 SEASON tee, and all the other Tees that I own. I have exhulted, I have cried, and I did it all as a fan. Thank You GOD for the New York Yankees. And as the 104th Yankee season comes to a close, all I have to say is that things have to change.
As far as who Im going for now, it would be hypocritical of me not to cheer on the Mets this season. As I sit here and watch the Mets manhandle the Dodgers tonight, they are pound for pound the best team in the postseason. Im doing it for my grandfather as well. After he saw Ecuador reach the second stage of the World Cup, I think that El Viejo deserves to see his beloved Mets win a championship this season. My granddad got here from Ecuador in the mid-60s, and he has been a fan thoughout their entire existence. I can honestly say that he is the biggest Met fan that I know, as he wouldnt let me watch the Yankees in his house when I was a kid. And I love him. He gave me a love for baseball, and he comes from a country that has no baseball pedigree whatsoever. He infused in me a passion for my team, no matter what team I would go for. He said that I was ruined when I moved to The Bronx when I was a kid, but hey if I went for the Mets in 86 when they played the Sox, why cant I go for them now? Im not jumping on the bandwagon, so dont get me wrong. IT would be good for NY to win a championship, no matter what team would have won it.
When do pitchers and catcher report?
LETS GO YANKEES!!!!!
