The One Thing That Yankees Fans Should Chant for the Rest of This Season


Picking up on something The Archangel said—and I believe in always listening to archangels—I have come up with what I think is the one thing that Yankees fans ought to chant, over and over again, throughout the rest of this endless season of horrors.

It is not "Fire Boone." It is not "Fire Cashman." It is not even that time-tested favorite, "Steinbrenner Sucks"—though I have to admit, it would bring back many fond memories to hear that defiant cry once again.

It is this: DER-EK JET-ER.

Think of it. Over 45,000 fans at every game, just chanting that, over and over again, through all the dreadful innings that are still to come in this most wretched of all years.


At first, the various Knights of the Keyboard and other media types wouldn't get it. They would wonder what it even meant. 

But then, slowly but surely, they would begin to understand. They would know who we want—who we DEMAND—take over this franchise and turn it to greatness again.

One man.





C'mon, let me hear you!

Did y'all see tonight's posted lineup.... Boone sending out a cry for help "Release Me please"

The Archangel said...

Thank You, seldom have I germinated anything which could be called even a kernel of an idea.

I got another one. How about have Judge lead off!!

Doug K. said...

archie - i believe he is.

I can’t believe they released Banda. I was hoping they pick up a catcher named Smokey. Then they have “Smokey & The Banda”. Oh yeah Monty through 6 more innings of 1 run ball. He could be making a run at the NL CY award.

I'm all for it: Der-ek Jet-er!

I checked out AC Milan on wikipedia. Says they lost money at a rate of about 155 Million Euros per year from 2017 to 2020, the latest data available. (Currently, one Euro is equivalent to one U.S. Dollar.) It looks like a big tax deduction, a paper loss to cancel out his profits from other businesses and investments.

It's much too time consuming to look into this kind of crap. Suffice it to say that rich people have complicated financial lives. Only his accountants and financial planners know how this ties in with his ownership of the Yankees.

I loved that Monty responded "what trade" when he was asked about his performance with the Cardinals after the trade.

Mr Angel - any relation to Nicolas Angel from HOTT FUZZ fame?

You should start buying lottery tickets.

Hoss? Are you there? Quick question if you don't mind.

Does anyone know if Jeter has any interest whatsoever in any hooking back up with the Yankees?

Has he said anything to give us any hope?

Inquiring minds, don't you know.

Doug K. said...

Undaunted by his release he took the mound anyway and the Banda played on.

well played - Doug

"Kung Fu Banda"?

If he had a brother, we could sign him, too, and then have a "Banda Brothers."

AA, I have absolutely no idea if Jeter would agree to do anything like this.

And frankly, if I had all the money in the world, an SI cover girl wife, and three kids to raise, I wouldn't go near it.

BUT...I would think the temptation to replace and show up Cashman would be overwhelming to Jeets. That's why we have to put the idea in his head—and make it an overwhelming demand to HAL!

Sign me UP HC

From your lips to the God's ears.

And draft Mattingly.

I am going to four games in a row and I am concerned about my mental health. I will try to summon up the energy to chant Hal Sucks! He genuinely sucks.
