Monday on A Show of Their Own we are going to start off by discussing our Yankees New Year Resolutions. I don’t usually make resolutions; I’d just break them on January 2nd anyway. But, since my Yankees are involved I thought I’d give it a go.

So, without further ado, here are my 2009 Yankees New Year Resolutions:


madonna.jpg– I resolve to lay off the A-Rod & Madonna theories and jokes.

– I resolve to not care if Jeter ever gets married

– I resolve to make everyone else see how great a pitcher Phil Hughes is

– I resolve to not lust for Grady Sizemore during Yankees/Indians games

– I resolve to not yell at my television when I’m subject to watching Yankees/Red Sox games  on NESN

– I resolve to not to make fun of the NESN commentators accents.

– I resolve to stand strong and not buy every single novelty first season patch, coin, dirt, etc

– I resolve to not let fans from other teams get on my last nerve

– I resolve to learn more about our prospects

– I resolve to watch as much of the MLB Network as my life allows


Final Whisper: I think the last two resolutions are the only ones that stand a chance…

It seems like that’s all I’ve said this off season. I’m so sick of people saying the Yankees buy World Series Championships.

As you all know, I live in central North Carolina… Atlanta Braves country. I hear it from EVERYONE and frankly, I’m sick of it.

Yes, the Yankees spent a boat load of money this off season and YES, we scooped up the best free agents on the market, but does that mean we are buying championships? NO… hello if that was the case A-Rod would have brought a championship to the Bronx by now.

Don’t hate on me and my team just because we can spend money. It’s not our fault you either root for a team who has a cheap Owner/GM and it’s not my problem that you root for a team that sucks so bad no one goes to the games or buys their apparel.

Commissioner Bud Selig just said a few weeks or so ago that this is the first time in a long time that the playing field has been level between small and large market teams. Baseball is not played on paper… as much as us statistic nerds would like to believe that it is.

Get over it already. Stop being jealous of my Yankees. It’s not our fault we ROCK.


Final Whisper:   26 and counting…
