Long may she wave! Yanks hoist 2015 Wild Card Home Field Advantage Flag o'er the House that Ruth Built

YO ADRIENNE, WE DID IT!

Well, here we go. One game, one last run, and a hurricane on the way.

One game. Not that we ever doubted this plucky Yankee team. We knew A-Rod would hit. We knew Luis Severino would become the Yankee Pedro. We said Refsnyder needed a chance. And we pleaded with the juju gods to do something about Stephen Drew. (Don't like concussions, though. Hope the guy is OK.)

OK, we goofed on condemning Carlos Beltran, and we didn't think CC Sabathia would ever start for us again. We were wrong on Didi, wrong on Tex, wrong on a lot of fronts. Oh well, we are in.

One game. This will almost surely be A-Rod's last run in the klieg lights. One game. With a hurricane on the way. One game.

YOU KNOW...AFTER THE DISASTER OF 2 NIGHTS AGO (THE EXTRA INNING LOSS TO BOSTON), I SAID TO MYSELF, "BULLSHIT IF THEY'RE GOING TO CELEBRATE GETTING INTO THIS THING."...BUT I MUST ADMIT, I THINK IT WAS A SMART THING TO DO TO CELEBRATE...THIS TEAM NEEDS TO HAVE A POSITIVE SPIN ON THINGS...IT JUST MAY HELP US GOING FORWARD, AND YOU WANT THE YOUNG KIDS TO "GET A TASTE" OF WHAT "WINNING" AND CLUBHOUSE CELEBRATIONS ARE ALL ABOUT SO THEY CAN BE HUNGRY FOR MORE OF THEM IN THE FUTURE...I STAND CORRECTED.....

after two years in exile, YES, it was time to celebrate!

ESPN ran a clip of John Ryan Murphy getting interviewed by the buxom blond in the locker-room celebration. His comment (paraphrased): "Right now, we're focused on drinking."

Kid just went up several notches in my book.

Sorry. I got it wrong:

"Everybody is on the same page, and that page is drinking!" - JOHN RYAN FUCKING MURPHY
