Not happy the Yankees season ended with them not in the play-offs for the second straight year. I'd hope Mo, last season and Jeter, this season, might have had a chance to ride ff into the sunset in a blaze of glory rather than a Yugo, but it is what it is and that's all it was meant to be, I guess.
This might cheer up Yankees fans: Alex Rodriguez is back-he was suspended for their entire season to include the play-offs, which they didn't make so he's back on the team. No, he's not my guy either, but then again neither was Clemons or Wade Boggs if we're getting down to brass tacks.
And if you want to get righteously biblical about all of this, he was punished and his punishment is over so his slate is wiped clean. And believe me, if he leads the Bronx Bombers back to the play-offs to say nothing of the World Series, you can bet your sweet youknowhat that all will be forgiven.
Today we are exactly 189 days away from 2015 Opening Day activities. Admittedly here in the Northeast we have to get through fall and winter and a reasonable amount of spring, but we shall and we will. And if it helps at all, this is national coffee day. You'd think with the way we drink it, it's be a religious holiday. Think of it as the Feast of the Caffeinated Epiphany. Alleluia.
