    the playoffs.

    Janet,

    I will try my best to get a few tickets, if that's at all possible. The
    prices are ridiculous! $1,500, so say the morning news TV talking heads.


    Best,

    DH was born and raised in The Bronx. One whole room in our house is
    decorated with pictures of NY Yankees, alive and dead plus photos of the
    old, old and old stadiums. The bed has a velor NY Yankee throw. The
    clock has his face on its face with him in his Yankee cap. The TV in
    that room only is on DirecTV so he can get the out of area Major League
    Extra Inning baseball package. The one-year old Toy Poodle is named
    Mickey Charles for Mickey Charles Mantle. 80% of his wardrobe has the NY
    logo. He has been wearing the same pinstriped shirt for 2 days. I have
    earrings with the Yankee NY logo and a rhinestone pin with the NY, too.

    I'd say we were Yankee fans here.

    Janet,

    Fun post!

    The Yankees are a world championship team from way back.

    Good luck to us!

    I have a friend who lives in upstate NJ. He's a big Yankees fan. We have
    a wager on the WS where if the Phillies win, he will drive down to meet
    me in Philly and treat me to a cheesesteak. If the Yankees win, I will
    drive up to North Jersey and treat him to pizza at his favorite
    pizzeria. Then there's the $20 bet I wagered at 1:16 odds on the
    Phillies when I was in Las Vegas last summer!

    I have a feeling my cousin in Philly will not talk to me or even email
    me until the series is over.

    Our family takes its baseball seriously. Her dad was a devout Mets fan.
    He was in the hospital, having had all his medications, etc. stopped,
    waiting to die. He awoke from a nap and asked his grandson what the
    score was. His grandson reported that the Mets won. My uncle smiled,
    closed his eyes and died.

    I have told my husband that I will have his tombstone inscribed
    "Baseball is life, the rest is just details". I already made him a
    grilling apron that says "Baseball is life, the rest is just barbecue"

    He says my tombstone will read "she never paid retail"

    Janet,

    Heh heh heh heh heh!

    I've heard a lot of fans talk about the Yankees. I am reminded of Billy
    Crystal narrating and telling stories from his youth to the present on a
    TV program, baseball, Yankees, I forget which but he was very engaging.

    Hope tonight's game isn't rained out. It's been another cool and damp
    day in Philly.

    Good luck!

    Best,

    Andy

    The best part of the World Series is the last game, bottom of the 9th,
    bases loaded, 2 outs and the score is3-0. The count is 3 balls and 2
    strikes. Finally, the long boring season of baseball will be over in
    one pitch.

    Heh heh heh!

    I've been to see the Phillies a handful of times. Once we had seats
    along the third base line, first level. I almost got beaned by a line
    drive foul ball, it came sailing by so fast!!! A smart fan never takes
    their eyes off the batter!

    Interesting note, at all the Philly sports arenas, for the price of
    admission (not counting the upper crust cuisine) all the food and soda
    is free. Speeds the lines along and the hired help doesn't have to take
    and make incorrect change.

    I remember watching a game the day it took effect. The TV camera
    captured "pig row," about six overweight guys in a row with trays with
    probably half a dozen hot dogs each, cheerfully stuffing their faces and
    swigging beers (not free).

    It was a grotesque sight. I remember thinking they'll be passed out by
    the 2nd inning.

    Well yes and I suppose the batter could hit a grounder and the fielder
    misses it and one run scores and then the outfielder gets the ball and
    throws it to 2nd and he misses it and another run scores and then
    another run scores and so it's now tied up 3 - 3. See...that's why I
    hate baseball. It could go on forever and forever!

    Actually, that's why Earl Weaver declared it the greatest game. You
    can't run the clock out, you have to give the other team their turn at
    bat.
