I am a petty little person
My team is out of the playoffs but I am getting great joy in rooting for the Giants, my dad's team.
But I am getting another perverse pleasure that I am not proud of... but I admit is there. It is always fun to not only see the Yankees lose, but to read the abject panic that happens in Yankee land by way of the New York press.
It's truly difficult to understand what the New York media or any Northeastern media is regarding baseball unless you experience it first hand.
There is no middle ground... only chest thumping arrogance, or Chicken Little hysteria.
Now the Yankees have been out played for all but 2 innings and are handing the fate of the season over to A. J. Burnett... the Yankee press is now pushing Kate Winslet out of the way to get into a lifeboat before the boat sinks.
