I rarely watch any Yankee games but when i turn it on they seem to not talk that much.. Who even does the games? the PBP is that Yankee homer (Michael Kay is it?) and i think Al Leiter ( ) and Paul Oneil? But man Gary/Keith/Ron are hilarious and maybe they talk too much and are even more homers, but they are great
BTW they had some interview with Keith/Darryl/Ronny (Cohen being the one interviewing them) about Shea Stadium (on SNY).. They talked about Game 6 and 7 of the '86 World Series and it was great and funny to hear some of their stories; Keith was pissed off after making the 2nd out and he went to the clubhouse cursing and sat in a chair and watched the rest of the game.. It was also hilarious to hear Keith's story about the parade the next day and how he almost missed it
I saw a good chunk of that show. It was a lot more entertaining that I would have thought.
I know it was a little before your time nmig, but have you gotten to see any "classics" from '86? (I think they run them on SNY from time to time). If you ever get the opportunity try to check out any playoff game from that WS run.
I have a great book on the '86 team called "The Year The Bad Guys Won" or something like that. It was written by Jeff Perlman. Pick it up if you get the chance...it's great stuff.
And I have to admit, as a 16-year-old back in 1986 I never imagined in a million years that, as of 2008, they haven't won another one since. That '86 team looked like it was going to be a dynasty with their pitching. That group only got to one more playoff series ('88, against the Dodgers), and proceeded to lose to a team they had dominated during the regular season (they went 10-1 against the Dodgers). Unfortunately they ran into the magic of Orel Hershiser (that guy was ridiculous that year) and Mike Scioscia (despite not having much power, he found a way to hit a home run off Dwight Gooden that led to the Dodgers tying up the series 2-2...the Mets eventually lost in seven, with Darling getting shelled in the final game and Orel going the distance).

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
