Being Thankful

As Thanksgiving approaches, we decided to share what we're thankful for this holiday season.

  1. Opening Day. Each season, Opening Day brings new hope. Our team hasn't behaved like buffoons yet. They haven't fallen into a 10 game losing streak. Our team hasn't already mathematically eliminated themselves from playoff contention by June. Opening Day is one day of the year that the stadium is sure to be full, brimming with shared excitement. In some cases, for one moment, your team is undefeated. Your team might even be in first place...along with 4 other teams. 
  2. The Yankee Stadium Italian sausage sandwich. Literally and figuratively. 
  3. The Mets' ballpark frank, sabret onions in red sauce, and jalapeno peppers.
  4. Derek Jeter's widow's peak because it amuses us. Mr. Perfect isn't so perfect, is he? Mr. Perfect is going bald. So there. 
  5. Beer
  6. Mascots
  7. When REAL tickets to our stadium tour games arrive in the mail (NOT those fake, bullsh*t tickets that we have to print out on our own damn printers, which the ticket gods charge us $2 to do).
  8. Free giveaways
  9. The Yankees and Mets. Some states in this country don't even have a baseball team and we're lucky enough to have two. 
  10. Fantasy baseball. To quote Pete Eckhart, "There are many things a man can do with his time. better than those things."
  11. Ken Griffey Jr.'s Instagram account. His #throwbackthursdays are epic. 
  12. We're thankful that the Yankees and Mets still allow us to attend games at their stadiums after all of the sh*t talking we've done on this blog about their golden boys. And also about their franchises.
In conclusion, we know that you are thankful for us. The End. Happy Turkey Day.
