    As the years have gone by, I’ve been convinced that the Yanks really do practice that play. But it doesnt matter. That game was so tense and that play came out of nowhere. Still one of my favorite sports memories.

    I can’t believe that was a decade ago. That means that there are a few posters on here that probably didn’t see that play live…or if they did, didn’t really understand what they were watching. Time goes by too fast.

    Proof that UZR, and WAR for that matter, is useless.

    It’s hillarious how Jeter’s detractors grasp at straws when claiming that Jeter was:

    A) Wrong to go out of position

    or

    B) Impeding a ball that was one hop away from Posada

    Talk about revisionism.

    I wonder how many times they replayed that play during the game.

    I read somewhere, maybe ESPN.com, a ballot for greatest Sports play (not MLB, ALL Sports) of the Century. The Flip won it. Of course, if they did biggest Fuck-up of the Century, it was Giambi Jr. not sliding.

    One little mental gaff, and it literally cost them the playoffs.

    Must have been the ‘Roids.
