Can Sully’s Tees Come Up With A Response On Short Notice?

“Forget about East Coast Bias, how about Yankees Bias? I should buy one of these and wear it to the Red Sox Victory Parade.”

Indeed, this initiative by MLB.com seems a tad premature. As did the near-drowning of Joe Torre with champagne last night after the Bombers clinched (at least) a playoff berth with a 12-4 victory at Yankee Stadium South aka the Trop. Without taking anything away from what’s been a remarkable turnaround by any standard, has it really been so long between World Championships that a mere Wild Card berth is celebrated with such glee?  More to the point, can anyone tell me if coverage of the postgame hi-jinx pre-empted Larry David’s appearance on “Center Stage”?  There might be some harsh words exchanged between me and the TiVo when I get home Saturday (and like all of the conversations at CSTB HQ, it will probably be one-way traffic).

    Torre started crying last night. Wow. I seem to recall Michael Kay (or maybe it was some other media ‘analyst’) taking the Red Sox to task two years ago for clinching the AL Wild Card and celebrating on the field. Michael Kay’s constantly pointing out ‘the Yankee way’ and how greatly it differs from the methods by the team in Boston. I hate him.

    That photo leaves out the best part: the back of the shirt, which proclaims the Yanks “AL WEST Champions”!

    if you have a death wish, sure.

    Most likely he’d only be killed if he wasn’t white.
