The Yankees celebrated their loss to the Blue Jays by pouring champagne over each other, pounding beers and taking swigs of whiskey. How was that different from any other post-game Yankees party? Oh, that's right, the Yankees clinched the AL East for like, what, the 20th consecutive year? Funny, Yankees fan likes to say that they only recognize World Series titles, but there seems to be a lot of celebrating going on.
It would have been cool to have been in that room, though. Not because these celebrations are cool. In fact, they are kind of dumb. Because the teams will again celebrate like this when the first-round is completed. (Could you imagine NFL teams celebrating with champagne after a wild card win?) No, it would have been cool to see a tipsy Jason Giambi, buzzing on a nice mix of cheap champagne, a couple of Coors Lights and Winstrol go over to Alex Rodriguez, put his arm around him and confess his love. Kind of like that one drunk fan that hangs out at Cal State Fullerton games.
"Alexsh, I loff yoush. You are the beshhhhhhhhht. You and me, were the beshhhhhhhht. We're the beshhhhhhhhht hittersh. But we're good right? I wash only trying to help yoush. Tancredi!"
You know it had to be a touching moment. Right before Giambi tried to dance with A-Rod's wife before he passed out in the middle of the clubhouse while his teammates surrounded him with syringes and took pictures.
So the Yankees are in, and here is a memo to the rest of the American League; If you don't think you can beat the Yankees, then you had better just loose out the string and let the Angels into the playoffs. Looking directly at you, Oakland. The A's are like your college buddy who would see a hot girl in a bar and say, "I've got dibs on her." Then he would spend the better part of the night trying to hit on that girl, but never get anywhere. That’s the Oakland A’s.
Congratulations to the Dodgers for not only falling to second place in the NL West, the Phillies have tied the club for the wild card. Glad to see that the Dodgers were able to capitalize on that captivating win on Monday night.
