In late August, 1951, I went home to watch Flash Gordon on New York's channel 11, but I was disappointed. There was a baseball game on channel 11. I started to watch, and that was it. I became a Yankees' fan.

We have many roles in our lives, but we are told that we are individuals and that our baseball team is not us. To each her own. Few things besides family ever came before the Yankees. One can agree or disagree, but one cannot deny I had the right to that choice.

I received my doctorate from NYU in science education in 1968. I remember during one of my final conferences with my advisor, the Yankees beat the Angels 1-0 on a Frank Fernandez home run.

I taught at various levels, ranging from graduate school to junior high school for 39 years. I always enjoyed writing, and the internet provides an outlet for me.

    You're welcome, Harold. I don't mind it presented either way. I don't have a problem with the decimal way because no one really mistakes it for a tenth or two-tenths of an inning.
