Been waiting 9 years for this to happen again.

Yeah, I know. Cubs fans have been waiting 103 years and counting. The Mariners, Rangers & Nationals have never even made it into the series.

Spare me. It’s not my fault your team perennially sucks. Deal with it.

They’re not the textbook-perfect crush-the-opposition Yankees of ’98-’99, but I’ll take ’em. I’ll take ’em as long as they win, and it’s nice to see them getting along so well, consistently supporting players like Burnett and Swisher through their wild rides through good and bad. My Yankees of ’77-’78 hated each other and fought all the time and won anyway. I prefer winning without the drama.

Oh, and Mariano Rivera is the best relief pitcher EVER. Derek Jeter is the best shortstop EVER. Texiera’s glove made up for his weak post-season bat, Matsui is an amazing clutch hitter, Johnny Damon remains a class act and a dependable rally sparker, A-Rod is overrated the way multiple orgasms are overrated, Andy Pettite belongs in the hall of fame, CC Sabathia can beat anyone, and Jorge Posada holds everything together.

The Phillies are tenacious, fearless and can never be counted out, either. The Yankees earned this one, and it wasn’t easy. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this matchup again in the post-season.

And in the off-season? WE’LL BUY THE REST OF THE LEAGUE!!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!

The stock market also does well when the Yankees win. So quit yer whinin’
