Memorial Day Open Thread

The Yankees open their three-game series with the Angels in a few hours (at 9pm ET to be precise), so here’s your open thread for the meantime. There will be some NBA playoff stuff going on a little later and although there’s no baseball on the national networks, there’s a few games going on if you have or Extra Innings or something. Talk about whatever you like here, go nuts.

    Ugh. Is it June 23 yet?

    • jjyank says:

      What’s June 23?

      • Pat D says:

        My first day of unemployment.

        But at this point I’m calling it my first day of freedom.

        • Knoxvillain says:

          Why are you looking forward to unemployment?

          • Havok9120 says:

            Heh. That’s something of a tale.

          • Pat D says:

            Because I’m pretty much sick of my job after 6 1/2 years, I’m going to get a decent severance package, and I’ll be able to collect unemployment.

            My job has just worn me down, especially the last 2 years. I was about to start looking around when they gave us our notice.

            At this point I’m looking to just unwind over the summer while I figure out what to do from here.

            • AndrewYF says:

              Good for you. One of the best decisions of my life was quitting my going-nowhere job, and though you don’t get the pleasure of quitting, it works pretty much the same. Onwards and upwards!

            • RBC says:

              Congrats. I know the feeling, just without the luxury of a severage package :-)

          • AndrewYF says:

            Probably because the alternative is worse, and won’t help.

        • jjyank says:

          Gotcha. It all happens for a reason man, things will work out.

    For father’s day this year (which I normally take my dad to a Yankee game) I got us Old Timer’s day seats. This will be our first time ever attending the event. Any good stories from anyone who has been before?

    • Steve D says:

      no stories…………..but thats awesome for you and your dad!

      • Josh says:

        Thanks, this has been a tradition of ours going on 4 or so years. I grew up in upstate NY, but now live in southern Maryland. Usually we go to some giveaway weekend, and Cooperstown, but decided to switch it up a bit this year.

    The Orioles are terrible.

    Rain delay in Asheville, bottom 3rd, Tarp on but its starting to let up. Rainbow overhead.

  5. Ari Gold says:

    It’s very annoying when you argue with someone who is suppose to be the fan of a team but doesn’t even know enough to realize who their best pitcher is.

    Fighting with an Angels fan.

    Haren v Weaver.

    I’m riding with Haren.
