Due to my competitive nature, I find it necessary to appeal to the masses.  On the Yankee message board, there is a battle going on between myself and another Yankee fan for the honor of supreme fan.  He is a worthy opponent who has been battle tested through many votes starting with probably 48 regular posters, then down to 24, 16, 8, etc. etc., similar to the NCAA tournament.  I was winning by such a large margin that he found it necessary to ask for votes from other boards.  I didn't even realize that was an option, but now that I do, I'm here asking for your vote.  Please go to the Yankee board, look for the thread entitled, "NYY Fan - The Final Two," and vote for me.  I am a true fan who's stuck by them through thick and thin and would talk about them for 24 hours a day if I didn't have a job I needed to keep. 

This of course is all in fun, but like I said, my competitive nature forces me to want to win anything and everything.  Thank you in advance for your support.  Go Yankees

 I am so tired of hearing fans say that Yankee teams of the past few years and the present aren't home grown. First off it drives me crazy because it really isn't as true as most of the fans of small market teams make it out to be. There are plenty of current that have come up through the Yankee system and any of the real Yankee fans in here know that, so I won't even get started down that road. I am taking a totally different route with this thread and I hope some of you out there are with me on this.

Most star players that come up through a teams system don't even start there to begin with. Many top players were drafted, recycled and drafted again as teams are not willing to pay the money to keep the rights for a high school player or college player that could not be what the scouts are projecting them to be in the first place. Many GMs and scouts alike were made fools of with players over the years because of the fact that scouting consists of two things, tons of research and LUCK! You can look back at last year alone and pick 5 players that no one even considered to be a splash and were either retreads or throw ins on salary dumps which ended up being stars. Although, for every player that someone thought was going to be great and he finally pans out () there is another right behind him.

Also, teams like the Yankees can not afford to build there teams through the minors because as they are waiting for these players to blossom there are millions of fans paying top dollar to see them win! We could have taken the Tampa Bay avenue and built through the system and go with young talent over paying free agents, but with that comes years of LOSING! This can't happen in the Boogie Down and we all know it. As of right now there is a decent crop of young guys down there and they are holding there own but don't get me wrong, if there is a major hit to our team and we need to fill a hole then sorry kid...enjoy the west coast. That is the life of a Yankee minor leaguer, you are nothing more than a bargaining chip towards the royal flush that is a World Championship.

So basically all of you haters out there that want to see a team grown from the minors...you can have it, the KC hats are over there on the clearance rack. Right next to your playoff hopes.

Hey everyone, I won!  Thanks to all who voted for me!

Carrick, I sent Lou a PM giving him the name and password.  Hopefully he joins.  If not, I guess we'll have to get someone else.  I think obxyankee is interested.

Um, I could give you the address, but then I'd have to kill you, lol.  What the hell am I gonna do with 300 thongs????  Well, I guess I would have less laundry to do since I'd have clean underwear for the better part of the year, lol.

A well-spoken yankee fan...modest???  I'm not buyin' it, no way.  I do believe that it's a little premature in our relationship for you to force me into buying you sexy lingere, mail it to you just so you can turn around and mail it back to me.  <---now this here suggests that there is a strong possibility that you may be high maintenance which in turn indicates that you are drop dead gorgeous..hah.   I guess stating that you are "gorgeous" was a complete assumption.  I do read what you have to write and find myself agreeing with MOST of what's there which piques my interest. So, I have no choice but to believe that you are attractive.  On a serious note, I'm gonna need that address. I just purchased 300 yankee thongs on E-bay.

Hey, Kodiak, thanks for the vote.  How do you know I'm gorgeous though?  I wouldn't say I am because I'm too modest.  As for the thong, well, although I'm a devoted fan, I haven't found such an item to purchase, so I can't send it to you, lol.

Out of the kindness of my heart, you have one more vote.  The fact that you are absolutely gorgeous had nothing to do with it.  I truly believe you are a huge fan so dedicated infact, I am positive you have a thong with pinstripes somewhere in your top drawer.  In exchange for my vote please forward said thong to my mailing address as soon as possible.  Thank you and have a nice day. ;0)
