Yankee Meltdown, Bring Back Pat, New Hampshire NiceOctober 18th, 2012 at 7:48 pm by Eric Murphy under From the Cheap Seats
I have a legit question? Would you rather be a Red Sox fan right now or a Yankees fan? At least the Sox know where they stand. The Yankees on the other hand just suffered their worst postseason beat down in 35 years with over $39 million sitting on the bench. Are Jeter, A-Rod (unless some team like the Marlins is dumb enough to trade for him) or Granderson viable options going forward? They have the money to spend their way out of nearly every setback but I don’t envy the challenge in front of General Manager Brian Cashman.
I might be in the minority but I actually like the white helmet, red jersey, Pat the Patriot throwback jersey’s more thanNew England’s regular uni’s. Most fans side with Flying Elvis but I think Pat is back in style and the entire ensemble has a clean, nostalgic feel to it.
Last year at this time I said the words Tim Tebow about 17 times a sportscast. Now it seems Rex Ryan is making up excuses just to get the former phenom’s name in the headlines. Rex said today that Timmy is going to be used as a running back Sunday. I can see Bill Belichick shaking in his hoodie (sarcasm)
I spent the weekend inNew Hampshireto watch my alma mater St. Cloud State play hockey against UNH. Although my Huskies got swept out of town I have to give major props to that fan base. They know their hockey and are very welcoming to outsiders. The student section even had a sign that read “Gopher’s Rejects”, very clever and probably true in some cases.
