  • You take a person out of New York but you can't take the 'New York' out of a person

    Anyway, so long as no repeat every "x" number of years is OK, I'm fine. Unless you count once every 86 years, of course.

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. This Sawx season is surely a bust! GO TORONTO!
    There's that famous humility that New Yorkers are so well known for . . .
    So gracious especially in victory.

      Man, you people gotta wake up. Ken with the Yankee av (sans the bulletholes), you giving up. C'mon, it's no fun getting on you guys' & gals' cases when you don't fight back.

      Don't be silly, Ken. We lost yesterday. What are you talking about?

      Hmmmmmmmmmmm, 2nd fiddle or 3rd fiddle this season? Inquiring Noo Yawkas (Bronx faction) want to know.

        • Actually that sentiment has been more of the Yankees forte lately

            Yeah, just checked and that must've been it.

            The Mets won the WC in 2000, as the Braves and Cards won their divisions, were 1 game better, and the Giants were 3 games better.

            http://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/NL_1988.shtml

            In 1988, the 100-win Mets were 2nd only to the 104-win A's.

              Especially from 2000-02? Or would that be one certain other team?

              Now then, is it better to go to the Big Dance and lose than not to be there at all? Hopefully, we'll bring home the big prize this time.

              I see that someone has gotten skunked. Fighting with polecats is hereby prohibited in Yankeeland. You definitely don't want to stick your nose into the same bowl of chowda that they've been grazing from.

              • For once this season I will root for Boston, while playing vs Minnesota.

                I prefer Detroit or Chicago in the ALDS...

                GO BOSTON!!!

                • Well youve been rooting for Boston for about 3 days now!
                  Thats a mighty nice ring.

                    Nah... It is only one of six. I don't want to rub it in how much we have...

                    • My Cardinals may not have played in the playoffs in 2003, but Boston nearly went into the WS if it weren't for some NY team that has 26 WS rings...and I was rooting for the Red Sox in 2003's ALCS. Why couldn't it have been Boston? Oh yes, because Pedro slammed poor little and old Don Zimmer to the ground. :grouchy

                      • Eh. People saying that Pedro was a bad guy for that is lame.

                        I guess we was supposed to let a 300 lb. old man knock him in the face and embarass him on national tv?

                        Lucky for Zim, Pedro just game him a bullfighter's OLE! instead of knocking his head off.

                          • No, it takes one side to start the argument. It just takes two sides to make things interesting... (I mean, continue the argument *cough*).

                            • Folks, I think that between the Pedro-Zim thing and the A-Rod-Varitek fight thing should both be out of bounds. I think there are more important things to bicker about in the 103 years that both the Yanks and the Sawx have been in existence.

                              Thanks.
