I'm in mourning, so I won't be posting anything lengthy or profound. The Yankees have won another title...sigh.
The thing I most want to avoid every year is a Yankees' world series parade. No such luck in '09. For the next week I'll have to hear about how much heart this gritty bunch of highly-paid stars has, how much adversity Alex Rodriguez has overcome and how Jeter's intangibles produced yet another ring.
It was a good run. Out of the playoffs last year and out of the winner's circle for eight seasons. Last night, they finally daggered all the Yankee haters across the land.
