GAME OVER.
Final score of the final game-
Yankees 7
Orioles 3

Mariano Riviera threw the final pitch,
Brian Roberts made the final out.
Yankee catcher Jose Molina hits the final home run at the cathedral.
Now it belongs to the ages.

It's hard to believe after Yankee Stadium is torn down Wrigley Field & Fenway Park will be the only two stadiums left that are older than me.

I sure hope I'm gone long before they are.

And DODGER STADIUM (which opened in 1962) is the THIRD oldest stadium. :o

32 years. I am only 31 . . . so I cannot even begin to fathom how great a 32 year old stadium must be. :lol: :P :wink:

I mean this in all seriousness:

if the Brewers don't make the post season with CC Sabathia and this core of young kids it really will be a shame.

How does Joe Morgan keep his job? He has to be the worst baseball announcer in the country. In one game last year he actually said If they want to win they have to score some runs. Really? What a f'n genius, why couldn't I think of that? :lol:

The Mets are gagging big time again, they don't deserve to go to the playoffs. I heard on the radio this morning that yesterday was their bullpen's 29th blown save of the season. How are they even still in contention for the playoffs?

Because the rest of the NL doesn't want to go to the playoffs either?
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I was going to guess that they play in a division with the guy who strikes out more then anybody ever.

If Mike Mussina wins 20 games this season does he move into the "lock" category for the HoF . . . he is borderline at best right now.

I don't think it makes him a lock but I think it improves his chances to more than borderline. What hurts him is no home runs in 18 years in the major leagues. :lol:

And Dodger Stadium is one of the best still, year's ahead of it's time. I saw a game there 3 year's agao and the place is amazing.

I think the Celtics who have won 25% of the NBA champions ever won and the Montreal Canadians would argue that!

So would the Lakers, possibly even the Cowboys (yes Jack and flock, I admit it).
