    Keep in mind..."Yankees Suck" is a New England (the region, not the Pats)mantra of sorts.
    Well, after the Giants put the kibosh on the Pats, none of us were saying "Red Sox S*ck" or anything like that. A few were tempted to, but we had a championship to remember, and there were two ceremonies: one up lower Broadway's Canyon of Heroes in NYC, and the other in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. Plenty of Yankee fans along the route, since the Giants used to play in Yankee Stadium for many years. I'd love to see what Schill would have to say about that one.

    Oh well, how's the wife and kids? Oh, and that loud-mouthed guy on your team, too. Oh, I forgot to say which one.

    Oh yeah, Papelbum.



    Oh, I'm glad that you folks know the number of outs per inning. Wouldn't want to have it any other way.

        • Yeah. like when?
          The Yankees have looked like Little Leaguers the last few days.
          Sox have mopped the floor with them.

            Sneer, sneer, Mr Mcall.

            At least the Yanks got the win streak started, and the Melkman Delivered!

            Let's just hop that Boston doesn't play many more games against last place Baltimore.

            • The Angels and Dodgers have a bigger rivalry than I ever knew existed. You commend the Angels on a job well done and immediately Dodger fans will tell you to knock it off or praise all things Dodgers instead.

                Do you mean the Anaheim Angels and the Los Angeles Dodgers? If so, I don't see much rivalry other than the fact that Los Angeles actually plays there, while the Angels play in Anaheim.

                Before this, the Los Angeles Dodgers were the first west coast team, followed by the California Angels.

                • I've been busy the past few days collecting some images. Just a few nice ideas created by others re this weekend's series:


                  The most famous of all Yankee chants has returned. Welcome back, my friend.






                  ^^ Why is the teenaged batboy jawing with Jorge Posada?


                  ^^ What the heck is going on here?

                  Hopefully, today's photo ops will be better. Ken, y'all smile out there in TV land. You're being watched on Fox. :

                    Change this to "Dogs were first team in LA County, followed by the Angels" and you'd be correct. As written it's just plain wrong there East Coast Don.

                      I was really referring to west coast baseball.

                      Now then, who are the "Dogs"?

                      • Dogs? Really?

                        No one can make you
                        Do what they want to
                        You know you're stronger
                        Than the lies
                        That they tell you

                          I like dogs and would never disrespect a dog by comparing Man's Best Friend to a Dodgers fan. That's just wrong.

                              That rivalry hasn't been around long enough to compare to the Sawx/Yankees rivalry.

                                I was afraid of that.

                                In order:

                                Dodgers 1958
                                Giants 1958
                                Angels 1961
                                A's 1968
                                Padres 1969
                                Mariners 1977

                                HTH

                                Now then, who are the "Dogs"?
                                You've never heard of Dodger dogs?

                                Though you'd be excused if you thought I might be referring to the team that plays in Petco.
