Start spreadin' the news

My beloved New York Yankees are falling apart, and I don't think Jorge Posada can save them. Within the past few weeks, the team that I grew up with through good times and bad have disappeared forever. During the late 80s and early 90s the Yanks were absolute shit, but Don Mattingly was still my idol, especially during the 1994 season, where the Yanks posted their first decent record in years...but that season was abruptly cut short by a player's strike. In 1996, a year I will never forget (in part because of the awkwardness of the early stages of puberty), the Yanks won their first championship in years with Joe Torre at the helm, and they never looked back. My favorite pitcher during this era was the young Andy Pettitte, and now he's gone too. Good bye big money A-Rod, goodbye to my childhood.
