Yankees finish first someplace

Yes, according to Yahoo (via the New York Daily News), the New York Yankees were the most-searched sports team of 2006. (Maybe fans were just wondering where the heck they were.)
Most-searched person or subject was Britney Spears.
And the top two most-searched news stories? Steve Irwin's fatal encounter with a stingray, and reality-TV sidekick son Daniel Smith's death three days after his half-sister was born in the Bahamas.
The war in Iraq came in third.

Twenty-six World Championships, my friend.

Twenty-six.

Also, they finished first in a little "someplace" called the American League East.

Two places ahead of Boston.

See, I just say these things so you can say *those* things.

Best wishes from Boston.

Which reminds me:

HOW CAN YOU GO ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AS IF NOTHING HAPPENED, WHEN DEREK JETER WAS ROBBED OF HIS RIGHTFUL MVP CROWN?

HOW CAN YOU ACT LIKE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE.

el duque,

Derek knows the name of the most valuable player in the American League for 2006.

And so do you.

And so do I.

Somehow, I think even Bostonians like Lauren know it.

But the big-city sportswriters with their expense accounts and their free parking and their air-conditioned box seats? The ones who vote for MVP?

They don't get shit.
