The New York Yankees won the World Series last night. I know because at midnight I was woken by the sound of a helicopter flying overhead. Also, my next door neighbor, notoriously quiet, clapped a bunch of times. I came into work and our receptionist was wearing pinstripes. Like many I feel satisfied when the Yankees win but it’s hard to feel overjoyed because as the press, every Yankee fan and every Yankee enemy likes to point out, it’s the job of the Yankees to win and when they don’t, something has gone seriously wrong. I guess that means something goes wrong a lot since they still lose all the time. I was shocked to find out the last time they won was in 00! Good thing I’m not an expectant fan, that would have been a long drought.
