Yankees: Champions of the World.

....well they will be.  Maybe.

But I'm not here to argue the awesomeness that is the Derek Jeter machine.  I just thought I'd share a few highlights:

  • Brand-spankin'-new stadium, awesome.

There is actually a screen that shows every single word that is said/sung in that stadium.  However, when Mr. Posada comes on the screen for a little announcement in his native tongue what you see is "(Speaking Spanish)".  I wonder, why put the video message on the screen and not the words?  Is it impossible for there to be deaf Latinos?  Shame, shame.
  • 5 hour and 10 minute, 13 inning game in rain, sleet, and cold.  Opposite of awesome, but still worth mentioning.
  • Home run in the 11th inning to tie the game by the steroid-free Alex Rodriquez, or as we Yankee fans like to call him, A-Rod.  See what we did there?
  • Numerous random-stranger high fives with this super fan:

  • 5 foul balls.  Almost had 'em.
  • A Kate Hudson sighting. 

She left early.  How do I know?  Corey kept watch.  Close watch.

Two Yankee playoff tickets:  $250
One cheesesteak and Godiva hot chocolate: $35
Waking up on the ride home to Corey singing and dancing to keep himself awake: priceless
