    You Have To Endure This Because I Had To...

    This morning as I sipped my cup of hot coffee in my bathrobe and slippers, I was forced to re-live October of 2008. The confetti, the smug smiles on the faces of our most hated rivals, it all came rushing back to me.

    Today is Opening Day at Yankee Stadium. The Skankees will have their home opener against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and since I had to endure the details of the home opener on the news this morning, I will bore you with the details too.

    Four time world champion Bernie Williams will throw out the first pitch (who I learned today was a wonderful guy and a great musician because the news anchor ran into him in a music store and he was nice to her son...NOBODY CARES!!!) Whitey Ford and Yogi Bera will be on hand to help manager Joe Girardi hand out the rings to his team.

    Girardi said this is way sweeter then winning it as a player because you get to hand the rings to your teamates. Wow, a Yankee that is full of it...SHOCKING!!

    There are a few Yankees on the team who have been through ring ceremonies before, Jorge Posada, Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera who will each have five rings, described as a "fist full" by the New York media.

    One final note about today's ceremony, George Steinbrenner "the boss man" will be in attendence for the event which starts at 1:05p.

    Now that I have made you suffer through the details like I did and now that I know you are saying exactly what I said, WHO CARES!?!?!?!? I will say to you what my wife said to me when I was done complaining about the coverage..."they'd be doing the same thing on the Boston news stations..."

    Just because she's right, doesn't mean I have to like it!!
