start spreading the news

So for all of you who have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks - there was this little thing called the World Series going on. While I was quite bitter to not have new episodes of Glee for two weeks, I can't say that I was upset to see the Yankees play in the post-season.

I know that I am living in enemy territory (Red Sox nation), but I don't care - I was the only one at the bar last night clapping and cheering for the Yankees. And this morning, I have my Tino Martinez (I will love him until the day I die, I swear it) jersey draped across my work chair. I will try my best not to gloat (too much) to the various Red Sox fans who work in my office.

Some of my fondest memories of my childhood involve me and my dad at Yankee games. There's something really special about spending time with your dad, eating huge hot dogs and boxes of Cracker Jacks. I even went to the World Series parade back in 1999. My friends and I ditched school (with my parents permission, which I guess took some of the fun out of it). It was one of the most fun days of my life. For the first time in a looooong time, I wish i were back living in New York just so I could join the crazy masses to partake in the celebration.

As I was searching YouTube for a video of New York, New York, I came across the official Yankees theme song, which I had never even heard:

And I'll leave you with good ol' Frank Sinatra to close it out. Goodbye for now baseball, we'll see you in the spring. That is, if we survive another winter:

ADDENDUM: Someecards is FAST as hell. They already have several cards up about the end of the World Series. This one made me laugh out loud:

Sorry Jimmy Rollins' prediction was off by a game and a team
