    Default Any Yankee fans here?

    I haven't watched a baseball game in years, yet here I am watching and waiting for
    Aaron Judge to hit homer #61 and #62.
    It's like watching paint dry.
    Almost as bad as soccer.

    I am soooooo bad.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
    Skiing is the next best thing to having wings.

    I don't follow MLB any more. Played baseball or softball all my life. Used to sponsor a Community League team for years, and played on that team. Love the game... just decided I don't enjoy it much as a spectator.

    Back when I was making an effort, and lived in New England, I rooted for the Mets. The Yankees? I have no use for a team that consistently buys championships. The fact that they could was part of what soured me on b'ball as a spectator sport.

    I follow the Yankees to keep track of Matt Carpenter, and now Harrison Bader.

    My daughter went to Wednseday's game.
    No Judge homeruns.

    My brother and mother went to Thursday's game.
    No Judge homeruns

    My dear friend and his family attended Saturdays game
    No joy in Mudville, either.

    He'll do it.

    All rise!

    No, but my Cardinals are doing pretty well this year!
    Nothing else matters but how I raise my children ... and their opinion of me, as a father.

    I have been a Braves fan all of my life, but growing up in the days when Joe Garagiola and Tony Kubek called the one game a week that was televised, and at least half of those were Yankees games, Bobby Mercer was my favorite player as a kid.

    And as someone who also played as long as I was able, I love the game, very much. And I admire greatness. What Judge is doing, fighting for those last two home runs but also for a very, very rare triple crown, is pure awesomeness.

    I was also so happy for Albert Pujols, to see him reach 700. I had the pure joy of watching him hit one of those from the stands in Anaheim a few years ago. I don't remember who the Angels were playing or who won, but I remember that home run. He has had an incredible career.

    Three people, including our Bilgee Rob, convinced me to walk less than a mile and watch Women’s Collegiate Softball. Super exciting stuff. Pure love of the game. Old fashioned spotertainment.

    Yep. I was a Yankees fan when I was a little boy back in the late 50's, early 60's.
    I've hardly watched a game since but still consider myself a fan!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Mariners fan but have been watching both Judge and Puhols get close to achieving
    their milestones and places in history.
    I enjoy baseball....played softball as a youngster here in NZ.
    I once thought I was wrong, but I was wrong, I wasn't wrong.
