  • World Champion YANKEES

    I was told the other day, when the YANKEES were down 2 games to none to the Oakland A's, that they were done. Most of us YANKEE fans just grinned and said, "you haven't been paying attention the last few years". When the likes of Spencer, Jeter, and Williams were in AAA Columbus, you knew they were special players...need anymore proof!!!
    GOD BLESS THE NEW YORK YANKEES
    See you on the big one

    Being from the Metro Boston area, I am a Red Sox fan...but in honor of our fallen brothers of the FDNY, NYPD and Port Authority Police, I will root for the Yankees (God, I can't beleive I said that! )...it's what they would want us to do!

      For the first time since 9/11, I turned on the TV to watch the GAME. It was good to sit at home with my son. We where jumping up a down and celebrating. I know for those couple of hours I smiled.... And life goes on. Today my thoughts are on my friends still at WTC. Please remember E40-L35 "A TEAM"

      For you YANKEE HATERS, GO EASY ON THEM FOR US...Even our BOSTON FRIENDS LIKE THE YANKS... THIS WEEK
      LET'S GO YANKEES

        Captain, I was thinking along the same lines as you...a bunch of Red Sox fans want the Yanks to win...must be a cold day down below, if you catch my drift.

          Wow, Red Sox fans pulling for the Yanks--as I live and breathe!!!The curse of Ruth has opened a new chapter!! Just kidding, hold the hate mail. Seriously-The Bombers embody the true New York spirit of tenacity, resilliance and true grit just like it's people. I'm proud to call myself a Yankee fan and a New Yorker.

            As a baseball fan born in Brockton, Mass whose first exposure to baseball was watching Ted Williams at Fenway Park, I can't believe that I am rooting for the 'Damn Yankees' this year. If the Yankees winning the World Series eases my brothers' pain just a little bit, count me as a rabid Yankee fan.

            In honor of my brothers in the FDNY, I am declaring a personal moratorium on Yankee hating for this postseason. However, I will note that it will last about as long as the Taliban or Al Qaeda.

              For you guys in Boston, your day in the limelight is coming, I know it in my heart. Bill Buckner was one of the finest fielders and hitters ever to play the game and it makes me mad when people only remember him any other way. The man was playing hurt, he gave his all.
              For E40FDNYL35, my prayers for you all haven't ceased, nor will they cease. We are Brothers and Sisters and this act of murder has pulled us together, and we must remain together. 9/11 has changed our lives forever.
              Since the M&M brothers in'60 and '61, (i was 7) I loved the New York Yankees. Since 9/11/01, we are one with the FDNY!! God Bless you all and please be safe!

                Pardon me for raining on your guys' parade, but how can you guys get excited about a sport where these guys are getting paid millions and millions of dollars to play baseball? As a result, it costs way too much money to try to go to a game. Games take forever on TV because of all the commercials that have to be jammed in to pay for these players salaries. In a way, it's a symbol of what's wrong with America today (and not just baseball, all sports). It's all about money, money, money. I'm a Phillies fan, and while the Phillies players are still way overpaid, the Philadelphia mgmt. won't shell out the big bucks to sign big players. We may never win a World Series again, but at least we know that the players are there because they want to be and it's not for the money.

                Okay, I'm off my soapbox. Don't take this personally, it's nothing against the other people on this forum, just the direction that the game has gone.

                Stay Safe

                  It is very good to see that life is in fact beginning to go on. And what better way for it to start than with the Yanks winning the World Series! Go Yanks.

                    I think it would bring NY even closer if the Yankees go all the way and I hope they have a parade for them and invite all the firefighters and police officers to participate with them!!!

                      It was nice to see Rudy Guiliani smiling throughout the game. The firefighters, police, EMS, and victim's families have been through a lot. Rudy has been right there with them. It was only a few hours but at least it distracted people from the grim reality for a moment.

                      I'm a Mets fan. Yeah I know Even I am rooting for the Yankees. New York doesn't give up!!!

                          Hey PA Volunteer,me taking things personal can have adverse effects and anyway life is too short and we live in the greatest country ever where our opinion counts.
                          Have you been to the movies lately? Check out what Richard Gere makes a year or snoop doggy dog, etc. Of course, I think Tom Hanks earns every cent he makes. I hope he does a Yankee movie, that way I can take my 8 year old future firefighter and not worry about f-----g every other word! GO YANKEES!!!!!!!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

                            I'm with you Chaplain. Yes, ball players make a lot of money but I sure am glad that the Yankees are there. Baseball has always been a game that has survived through the ages and growing up I thought it was the law of the land that the World Series was always played in Da Bronx. I guess that's because it most always was. And yes, as you can see I'm a Yankees fan. They've been there through the years and what a wonderful tribute it would be to see them play the World Series again in New York. LET'S GO YANKEES !!!!!!!!!!!

                            PS: I'm also a NY Rangers fan as well.....

                              Sorry to rain on anyone's parade here, BUT, I'm rooting for a Seattle - Arizona World Series. (The other guys have been there before, and I always root for the underdogs).
