Humble Thanks To The World Of Yankee Fans

I am humbled by this attention and these good wishes.

Let's stop it here and now.  Although I would like to hear " Sheer Mag" do its version of something, intermixed with the Master.  Who wouldn't?

For the rest of the day, as Marie Antoinette once said to the Dutch:  " Let them eat cake!"

There is LSD in each M&M.. Due to being in LA and all.

To help down the cake, my liquid refreshment will be:

It is the new Crown Royal for me.  And American.

Tonight :  A simple " seafood tower" and " filet" on the bone at Ruth's Chris, thanks to the generosity of family members.  Tomorrow, to the heart guy.

The only present I really want is silence on behalf of Brian Cashman.  No more deals.  No more maneuvers.  No more thinking.

The cards have been fairly dealt and we must stand pat.

That will do it.

Thank you all.

 I just hope you don't regret the encouragement you have instilled in me.

Rats, and I was working on a version of a birthday greeting to the tune of "Here Comes The Yankees" now it will have to remain my unfinished symphony. Bummer. Well here's a taste of what could have been...

To “Here Come the Yankees”

Here comes ALPHONSO
Get behind and cheer for our ALPHONSO
Drink Jack and beer because, ALPHONSO.
Everyone knows he writes to win, cause...

He’s, “It’s High’s” host ALPHONSO
Happy Birthday to you ALPHONSO
No other way when you're ALPHONSO
Wadda ya say we win a brand, new, bloggame...

We're gonna shout when ya say it’s a con.
We're gonna pout when you are the Black Swan
The other blogs gonna know what it means to write about the Y.A.N.K.E.E.S

Shout it out loud , We like ALPHONSO
We're really proud of our ALPHONSO
And it’s his birthday today.

Anyway, something like that... A little choppy but it was a work in progress.
Happy Birthday.

Just an FYI for those who don't know the song I'm talking about...

"Here Come the Yankees" is the official theme song of the New York Yankees baseball team.

"It has been the official team anthem since 1967, when it was composed by Bob Bundin and Lou Stallman. Bundin and Stallman were associated at the time with Columbia Records, whose then-owner, the media conglomerate CBS, was also the parent company of the Yankees. It was recorded by the Sid Bass Orchestra and Chorus."

Here's the lyrics, via The Deadball Era Site:

Here come the YANKEES
Let's get behind and cheer the YANKEES
They're gonna learn to fear the YANKEES
Everyone knows they play to win, cause

They're the New York YANKEES
Show them today why you're the YANKEES
No other way when you're the YANKEES
Wadda ya say we win a brand, new, ballgame

We're gonna shout when ya powder the ball
We're gonna scream, "put it over the wall"
The other teams gonna know what it means to play the Y.A.N.K.E.E.S
We love the Yankees
Shout it out loud , We Love The YANKEES
We're really proud of our YANKEES
And we're gonna win today
2, 3, 4, Hit, Run, Fight, Score, Go! Go! Go!

We're gonna shout when ya powder the ball
We're gonna scream "put it over the wall yo"
The other teams gonna know what it means to play the Y.A.N.K.E.E.S
We love the Yankees
Shout it out loud, We Love The YANKEES
We're really proud of our YANKEES
And we're gonna win today

Y.A.N.K.E.E.S. Yes
Y.A.N.K.E.E.S. Yes

It's a little choppy all on its own. Also note the prescience
of Y.A.N.K.E.E.S Yes. Did they name the network for the song?

Ok, how much LSD in each M&M?

If it's only a couple of mcg's then no worry -- just an army experiment.

If it's more, then -- can I invite a few friends? And will the DEA be watching? I have to worry about my security clearance.

I remember that Yankees theme song. It was three rings above the Mets song. Anyone remember what those 3 rings stood for?


Alphonso, Happy Birthday and thanks for all the comedy and great writing!

I hope he regains consciousness to read this.
