27 Ringzzzzzzz (For Now)
I’m a Yankees fan (sorry, growing up in the 90’s an hour from the Bronx will do that to you) and it’s been way too long since I had a championship to celebrate. I mean, I was in high school the last time they won, for crying out loud. Good thing the Yanks are totally unstoppable now, thanks mostly to the Astros’ inability to buy a hit. So much for their lackluster starting rotation. Anybody wanna lend me $600 so I can go to a World Series game? Send me an email and I’ll give you my Venmo info. Or maybe I’ll just start saving now, because the Yankees are gonna be here for a while.

I had never heard of this guy until his single became the No. 1 song in the country. ... How often do you see an umpire so plainly admit he messed something up? ... Kids in New York aren’t bullying as much because they’re playing dodge ball. ... There’s a documentary about the Simpsons episode “Homer at the Bat.” ... A cool moment as Gordon Hayward addressed the Boston fans from his hospital bed. ... He’s not as good as Hayward but you have to feel terrible for Jeremy Lin after he went down with a scary knee injury in the Nets’ opener.
