I have such a low tolerance for ESPN Yankee-shilling, it didn't take me long to switch from ESPN to just watching the YES broadcast on MLB.tv. Sounds crazy, but Yankee-love is more tolerable to me coming from people who have every right, and contractual obligation, to love the Yankees. I actually enjoyed it a lot more that way. They were surprisingly complimentary to our boys, and gave credit where credit is due. And for an inning they kept pronouncing Pridie like "pretty" and it's so much cuter like that. He really should consider changing it. Boof can show him which forms to use.
It was a great game, wasn't it?
It would have been even greater if I hadn't made Shelley Duncan hit a homerun with my mind. I had literally just let the words "I really like Shelley Duncan even if he IS a Yankee" come out of my mouth, when BAM! Out of the park. Oops. My bad.
The most amazing part of the game (besides my amazing ability to control baseball players with my brainwaves)?
The Alejandro Machado sighting. I was stunned. Alejandro Machado is like a Yeti to me. You've heard the tales. There's some sketchy evidence of its existence. But you never actually SEE one. Until now. It was very exciting.
