It is that time of year again

It’s actually past that time of year, it’s almost June, I’m just a little behind but once again committed to blogging!

~~ Yankees 5, Astros 3 ~~

The Yankees are in second place, 2 games behind the Red Sox. For about 2 seconds they were in first place. However this is how I like my season, the two teams that are supposed to be in first and second are in first and second. The third place team Toronto, is wayyyyy back there. It is baseball, a sport where anything can happen and it is a very long season.

This post is just to get me back in the swing of things. I don’t have a commentary or even an opinion of the game. It is just good to sit here tap tap tapping away and putting my thought out into cyber space again and …. blog post did not save …. CURSE YOU SPECTRUM! Wifi has crapped out again. This happens with disturbing frequency since Spectrum took over. I am not the only one who says it. Fortunately, I was able to copy and paste this into word so I will be able to post when Spectrum gets its fucking act together.

If you want to read some recaps from writers who actually get paid to write about sports I’m sure you know where to find them. Some of the titles are: Severino’s inspiring start lifts Yanks to series win
Sanchez picks good time to end hitless stretch – Bryan Hoch

Enough with the losing

~~Red Sox 5, Yankees 4~~

Yes I know it’s just May and I should just chill, this is not the first time the Yankees have had a rough patch. I just hate seeing them lose. My boys just get such sad little faces. And I keep telling Mark, you need to hit a home run so I can give your charity some more money!

However unlike those bandwagon fair-weather a**hole fans on MLB.com, I am not putting away my Yankee hats, being a fan means supporting your team through good and bad. The people who are embarrassed to be seen in a Yankee hat just because the team has lost a few and is playing poorly are not real fans and should be banned from every buying anything with the Yankee logo.

Climbing off my soapbox, I just got an e-mail from MLB blogs saying they are converting thousands of Major League Baseball fans’ MLBlogs from Movable Type to WordPress! So now I have to decide if I should go back to that blog, or stay with this blog. One reason I would go back was because I was having trouble navigating the site, but if it’s WordPress, I am familiar with WordPress now, and I will probably be able to transfer all these blog post there. A reason to stay is I have built up a following here, while I never had much traffic when the blog was in MLB blogs. I will have to decide Monday, that is when the new blogs go “live”.
