It's Like Deja Vu All Over Again

I just got done watching this week's "The Bronx is Burning" on ESPN. They flashed an interesting piece of trivia during the "Backstory" segment that had me feeling pretty good and it prompted me to look it up. On August 9, 1977, 30 years ago today, the Boston Red Sox led the Yankees by 5 games in the standings. The Yankees ended up winning the division that year by 2.5 games. And here we are, 30 years later, with the Yankees in an almost identical situation. I'm thinking history just might be repeating itself. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the 1977 World Championship team.
Tell 'em Yogi: "It's like deja vu all over again."
