The Yankees in London
Besides seeing several more people in Yankees hat here in London (and one kid dressed in all Yankee clothes), I noticed an article in today's The Times (on the American Sport page of the Friday paper) about the Yankees signing ARod. I'll give you some samples from the article:
The 28-year-old oozed bland respect in a press conference at Yankee Stadium.
Rodriguez is the best short stop [sic] around but will move to third base because the Yankees already have Derek Jeter, their David Beckham.
The rivalry between the Sox and the Yankees is the most acrid in American sport, yet its on-field outcomes are reminscent of the Scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail with King Arthur and the Black Knight. The Yankees chop the Sox to pieces each time they fight, but the Sox, wounded yet proud and defiant, keep getting up and are hacked down again and again.
You gotta love those Brits!
