In case you haven't heard, the Yankees won the World Series on Wednesday night!!! I still am so excited about it. It doesn't even feel real yet. I wish that the Sooners had won the national championship earlier this year though too, that would've been the icing on the cake! I can't wait to get my 2009 Championship shirt! And hat. And hoodie...

I have been saving this quote for months to use at the end of the season and now it's finally here! But now I'm sad that I won't see them again till March. I know it's a long quote, but I think it's completely true!

“The relationship between a fan and his baseball team is unlike anything else. If you love a team -- if you truly love it -- then that team infiltrates your daily life for six straight months (seven if you're lucky). You wake up, you shower, you eat, you work, you eat, you watch your baseball team, you sleep. When the Mets collapsed for the third straight season last week, my devastated friends who follow them all said the same thing: it wasn't losing again as much as reflecting on those 162 games and the hundreds of hours wasted along the way. They felt betrayed. Only baseball does that to you. It's a game of routine, of watching one at-bat after another, hoping something different happens, of relishing the little things that happen along the way. You don't know your favorite players personally, but you feel like you do.” -
