Yankee Doodles

Good news: We now have the Yankees tv network on our cable service.

Good news for those who like the Yankees and want to cheer them on to yet another pennant and Series win.

Good news for those who hope the Yankees should only fall on their bats and die slowly and in great agony, so they can watch the carnage on live tv.

Either way, we win. VH-1 gets bumped up a bit and the YES network now occupies dial setting 37, just above the NFL and below the Country Music channels.

I’ve always liked the Yankees, but I don’t know why, as I don’t follow sports and have no interest in them. Some one of these days I’ll have to figure it out.

Everybody has a story.
Joseph Palumbo of Bridgeport CT passed away Friday. He was one of the original liberators of the Dachau Nazi Concentration Camp. An ardent Baltimore Orioles fan, Joe was well loved by the Oriole players. Tom Boswell, the famous Baltimore Sun sports writer, wrote, “Spring training does not officially begin for the Orioles until Joe Palumbo arrives in Florida.” When the Orioles were purchased by Edward Bennett Williams, he attempted to throw Joe out of Spring training, but the team refused to practice until Joe was allowed back.
