Thanksgiving Top 10

I've done this in the past and figured why not do it again. In the spirit of giving thanks, here are 10 Yankee-related things I am thankful for this year:

10) This blog and for everyone who reads it - still can't believe people do - thanks!
9) The MLB channel on XM Radio - I don't know what I'd do without it
8) Brian Cashman bringing in CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira and A.J. Burnett
7) Being at game 2 of the 2009 ALCS and getting to see Jerry Hairston Jr. get a pie in the face
6) I'm not a Red Sox fan
5) The "Core Four" - I hate the moniker but love the guys, and yes, even Posada
4) The organization's 27th World Championship - It's been almost a month and it still feels good
3) Mariano Rivera - Where would the Yankees be without him?
2) The Steinbrenner's deep pockets and their willingness to lose money to try and field a winner

and the #1 Yankee-related thing I'm thankful for this year.....

1)I want to thank the Good Lord for making me a Yankee fan.

Feel free to post your own.

Peace, love, Pinstripes, and Happy Thanksgiving,

I am not going to do my thanks list in any particular order:

I am thankful for twitter and a place I have found others who share the same love for the Yanks as I do.(My family just doesn't get it!)

CC Sabathia,enough said

A rod coming into his own this season and acting like a ball player and not a rock star!

Nick Swisher,AJ Burnett for bringing fun and life back into the
game and the locker room

For an incredible season that ended with an explosive incredible World Series win

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I thank God that I'm not a Yankees fan, but I will say that it is easy to understand that people read your blog (I gotta keep the peace after that first statement!).

Anne - Those are all great items and are definitely things to be thankful for. I'm definitely a Twitter fan. I originally thought it was dumb but I'm glad I got into it.

Schruender - Thanks very much. I appreciate the compliment.

The Steinbrenners are not losing any money.

Maybe not now but they have in the past.
