Dear Discerning Readers of IIHIIFIIc:
I have tried to keep a relatively low profile on IIH when it comes to promoting MoonBigPapi.com. I don't want to be thought of as swinish when it comes using IIH's bandwidth to promote a cause that's near and dear to me.
I was pushed over the edge today when I read this article in the NY Post:
Perhaps the alert readers of this blog have already seen it. From the article:
The Yankees may want to think about reworking their upcoming tribute to retiring rival David Ortiz.Gee, ya think? What on earth could we possibly do?
At the end of the article, the author lamely concludes:
Now, the person who is in charge of planning for the Yankees may want to start digging out some old Orioles highlights, just in case ... After all, turnabout is fair play.Well, that sure would be a hoot!
Apart from that killer idea, the Post's journalists seem stumped. Any alternatives the Yanks might have for taking action just aren't obvious to them. No newspapers around here have ever reported on an idea that outsiders have found newsworthy. It's like the New York papers are suffering a gotham-sized anal-cranial inversion and the only people in the loop are out there in the hinterlands. We've been waiting, day after day, for NY beat writers to alert the locals to our cause. You know, actually to be journalists.
True Yankee fans understand that other, lesser teams can only view their success through the prism of the Yankees. Other teams show Yankee highlight videos ... when they Yankees aren't even there. Is some MORON at the Post really suggesting that the Yankees should do the same and show Orioles videos?
Well, we true Yankee fans will just have to think really hard and come up with another idea for getting revenge. Maybe the NY Post and the NY Daily news will pick up on our vibe. Maybe they know how to click a link.
Maybe the Yankees will win 11 out of 10.
