No Yanks......No Fun!!!!

Baseball.......America's pastime? Well as long as the Yankees are playing in October. The MLB postseason without the Bronx Bombers is like The Olympics without doping......Doesn't seem right. The New York Yankees sit 9 games out of the Wild Card spot with 2 weeks left and are all but gone for the season. Amazing enough, so is America's interest in baseball.

You may love 'em or hate 'em, but you WANT to see the Yankees in the playoffs, you NEED to see the Yankees in the playoffs. That is what sports is all about, rooting for or against a team. Fans are ALWAYS more interested in a game that involves a team they love or loathe. I am a Clemson fan and love to see South Carolina lose. The Redskins are my team and nothing pleases me more than to see the Cowboys get an asswhoopin'.

The Yanks, the Lakers, the Cowboys, Duke Hoops, USC (California) Football are teams that you are either a diehard fan for, or you wish them a beating like a 6 year old who drops the "F" bomb for the 1st time. Although I'm a life-long Orioles fan, I can't imagine watching the ALCS on a cool crisp October night and not seeing Jeter and Arod get cheered for one night at Yankee Stadium and then booed on the road the next game.

Admit it, we love to hate.......evenmoreso in sports. It's what makes us watch!!!!!

We use words like "Cowboys", "Will", "Put", "An", "Asswhoopin'", "On", "The", "Redskins"...I use these words as a punchline. ;)
