I could just post statistics that are quite humorous in and of themselves like:
New York Yankees
East Division titles (15)
AL Pennants (39)
World Series titles (26)
But YOU might not find those a humorous as Yankees fans may.
Two words that could stir some emotion: Bucky Dent
Now I do remember that the title of the thread was make Trip laugh...not cry. So, back to the O/T
BTW...I do feel it is only fair, and quite honestly well earned, that those Sox get their time in the sun and in the record books. They are a very good team that has finally come out of the shadow of the Yankees after 80 something years.
