World Series 2009 - Match Up or Meant To Be?
This years World Series has been matched up position by position by just about every Network, reporters and even by the fans!
I have been a NYY fan since the 1950's and have seen many victories and even some heartbreaking loses over those many decades!
I have seen, as have most all have those NYY Championship teams of the late 90's.
It seemed that each one of those years they were not only playing as a team, but for and with a purpose!
It seemed like the Championships won by those teams were meant to be! For Joe Torre's brother, for Daryl Strawberry, etc.
They were more than teams those years they were family and friends.
This year I have seen and felt that same feeling about this team. They are not seemingly playing for individual records and stats, but as a team and for each other.
They have had that same way of playing. They play to win and do not play trying not to lose.
They feel every time they play they are going to win. They showed that by all those comeback wins!
They play not only as a team, but as in the 90's seems to be more like friends. They act like a family that genuinely care for each other!
What or who will inspire them to win their 27th Word Championship? The first title of many for the New Yankee Stadium. That it's the first year there is also reason to win.
It could be one or both of the two people that come to my mind. They really have many reasons or inspirations to win this year!
Perhaps they will win it for that little girl Bret Gardner went to visit at the Children's Hospital or other children that are terminally ill the team went to see this year.
I think this year at the new Yankee Stadium they will win #27 for "The Boss" and I don't mean Bruce either.
I mean their beloved Principle owner George Steinbrenner himself. He will be there I have heard and it will be great to win it with him present! This is the His year!
So, go ahead folks and do your match-ups and make all the predictions you want. I just know this year we will be the World Champions because it is just meant to be!
Did you watch the playoffs so far folks? Did you see the way we won so far? I believe their are angels playing with us. I believe it is meant to be that we win it all.
I believe most of all we will win for another reason. That is the power faith and prayer.
You can laugh if you want, but you won't be laughing when they hand the NYY trophy #27 very soon.
t won't be about match ups and it won't matter who favors who to win. It matters only that they will win.
How can I say that is how it will be? They will continue to play with and for each other and with a purpose. They play believing they will and expect to win. So, win they will!
They have faith in the Lord (listen to after game interviews of our players) and faith in each other. That is what makes for a victory friends!
As a lifelong NYY fan I am very proud of this years team and thank God that this year they will give all the thanks to the one who really helped them win.
It's not about magic, not about the super star players. There is not such thing as good luck or bad luck. It is about playing well and having favor with God and man!
Yes, pitching and defense win games and that will be true, but it's not about match ups this year.
It's about the NYY becoming a family again, playing as a team, playing with a purpose. It's about having faith and acknowledging they need and have help from above.
It's about playing with and for each other. It's about believing and expecting to win. It's about playing for a purpose. This Championship is for you Boss George!
So, you see my sports friends, you can give all the match ups you want position by position. You can give all the reasons they should or can or cannot win.
Go ahead and predict all you want! Just remember what I said her later when they hand the trophy to the 2009 World Champion New York Yankees.
It is not about your match ups. It was just what was meant to be! I am from PA and a NY sports fan in every sport. I am above all a New York Yankee fan forever!
Sorry PA sports fans you won last year, but this year the Champions are the NYY. Congratulations Yankees! Don't forgive to give thanks to the one above for the win!
