If you’re a Yankee fan with a social life, October is a difficult time; for the last decade, our early fall nights have been dominated by must-see playoff games, It’s easy to skip out on a mid-August series against Tampa, but when it gets down to live-or-die time, when only a few chances to watch the game we love remain for another six months, well, it’s hard to do anything except stay in (or, if you’re lucky, head up to the stadium). It’s a great time, and I’m excited for it. But every year, no matter the outcome, I’m a bit relieved to get my regular life back when it’s over. For now, though, I’m hoping that won’t be for quite a while.
Let the games begin!
