I am from Pittsburgh but have divorced the Pirates because their ownership has been so atrocious over the last few years. If they do in fact get better, I will root for them. I have a very special place for the Yankees because my first time ever being able to watch the late, late World Series games were in 1996 with my late father as the Yankees came back to beat the Braves. I hated the Braves because of the way they ripped the heart out of Pittsburgh fans out and it was a pleasure seeing a young Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettite come back from a 2-0 hole. So if you don't like the reason I am a Yankees fans, screw off!

    Erik, the New York Yankees open the 2009 season against the Baltimore Orioles. Much of the talk has been about 'finally' bringing a World Series Title back to the Bronx and while that's what I certainly hope for, I always try to remember how at only 19 they have blessed me a remarkable amount of success in my lifetime. There is hope in 2009 but here is a tribute to the New York Yankees of the past seasons and the many great moments they have given me-

    Let me know what you think if you get a chance, if not no worries.

    Hey Erik,

    I recently wrote an article essentially saying a final goodbye to the original Yankee Stadium. A picture truly IS worth 1000 words, and one that i found inspired my article. I would love to hear what a fellow top-25 Yankees writer feels about it. Hope to hear from you soon!

    Yanks and Steelers are a bizarre match but it's what I know and love!

    Oh how I remember those days. But come on man, let it go. The Oakland game bothers you how? Ben threw two pick sixes that day one of which was for 100 yards. Can't put that game on Cowher or the Baltimore games. The Ravens were really good that year and they had our number for once. The Denver and Atlanta losses that year were really bad though. No way I could ever accuse him of quitting though. I love the man too much. Do remember when I dressed up as him for Halloween? Look it up on facebook.

    I definitely blame the front office for not signing the right starting pitchers, which is the most important part of a postseason series, but Torre made too many game strategy mistakes during his tenure to completely absolve him from fault. Thanks for the post and comment Erik.

    I agree sir--you've set up some expectations for yourself now, ha ha. Take care.
