What, no 2004 ALCS? Or is that #11, just got pushed out of the Top Ten by the Mets?

You are doing God's work here, my friend. You have almost enough sense of humor to make up for the rest of Yankees fandom.

What are you referring to? Nothing happened in 2004.

That was the year of the great presidential election void, and historians today are still trying to patch together the events. Considering the world amnesia and media memory blackout of that era, it's hard to understand what you mean?

Did the Mets lose then, too?

I don't know what you're talking about. Are you talking about some drug-related fantasy? Nothing happened in 2004.
