It’s amazing how much better an off day feels after the Yankees win, especially a win like yesterday’s. We’re waiting for the Royals to come to town tomorrow, which will be the first time Melky Cabrera will play in the Bronx as a visiting player. Melky was a fan favorite and occasionally productive, and although I wasn’t exactly his biggest fan, I will certainly give him a round of applause*. If you’re part of a World Series Yankees team, you’re cool with me. Rock on, Melky.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. You can watch the Twins predictably lose to the Red Sox on ESPN (Blackburn vs. Beckett) or the Mets and Rockies on SNY a little later on (Capuano vs. Chacin). There’s also NHL and NBA playoff action going on as well, I’m sure of it. Talk about whatever your heart desire, so have at it.
Note: A reader by the name of Bethany emailed to let us know that
her she** and her boyfriend signed up for the Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium this summer, and they’ve placed a little wager on the results of their pledges. She’s a Yankees fan and he’s a Mets fan, and if she wins he has to run in a Yankees hat, if he wins, she has to run in a Mets hat. Simple enough. Anyway, you can help her out and pledge here.
* Assuming I was actually going to the game, of course.
** Grammar nazi’d. Refund check’s in the mail.
