Yankee Fans hope fading

I have been biting my tongue on this issue, because I am a firm believer in the idea that if you crow to early, then you can jinx things. I guess that comes from being a Red Sox fan, as well as a resident of Philadelphia, where sport teams always feel jinxed.

But, Yankee fans, cmon. Things are looking dire. When you fall 10 and a half games back before Memorial Day, that is not a good season. When hapless Tampa Bay is behind your team by one game in the loss column, that is not a successful season. When you have to hang you hopes on a pitcher who is closer in age to AARP as opposed to MVP, that is not a good season!

Ha! Okay, I can't help but gloat just a little bit. And their is your sports news for the day. Don't worry, I will come up with something more well rounded later, I promise.

Wow, and you're a red sox fan?? I'm so glad I found you, lol...

I'm a die hard red sox fan, and I do know the feeling of the "jinx", because it seems like we come out fighting in the beginning of the season, and then by the all-star game we are letting people catch up and then by September we're out of the hunt... darn that sucks when it happens, lol... but this year we're holding our own, and i'm loving it!!

Ok, I haven't done this in years, and I've been going through withdrawl so I have to.... I think you meant "crow TOO early" rather than "crow TO early".

Hooked On Phonics worked for me!!

Jinx? I don't know. They're just not a very good baseball team. A stacked lineup with no starting pitching.

The evil part of me hopes that Clemens is a miserable failure, mostly because Steinbrenner is paying him like a fool to pitch. I don't think he'll make that much of a difference.
