Happy Birthday to Me!

For the first time, namely since the regular season never went this late before, The New York Football Giants and the New York Yankees both won on my birthday. Don't be stingy in your congratulations, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

The Yankees look primed to go deep in the playoffs this year, having made significant improvements in their bullpen and their defense. Their top three of CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte will be a problem for their opponents and having Alfredo Aceves available to fill the old Ramiro Mendoza role from the bullpen gives them a lot of options in the ALCS. Their advantage in the ALDS is that whichever team makes it, will be beaten and bloodied just from getting there. Neither will have the chance to set their rotation the way they really want it, which gives the home team a big shot in the arm(s).

The Giants are rolling along at 4-0, with the Raiders coming to town next week. The injury to Eli Manning didn't appear to be serious, as he was walking around on the sideline in the fourth quarter with the headset. Even if David Carr is the starter next week, it provides two opportunities for the Giants: let Eli recover another week if needed, and give Carr some reps in game conditions against a team that isn't playing well right now and figures to fold like a wet napkin in the face of the Giants defense.

Not a bad beginning to the month of October, all things considered.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Ange, your eyelids are getting heavy, you are getting sleeeeepy, listen to my voice Ange, you are very relaxed and you feel very good right now. You know the truth and it makes you feel goooood, the parade down Broadway, all the confetti, the highlights from all 26 previous World Series wins, watching Joba Chamberlain spraying champagne all over Mariano Rivera and Joe Girardi, the Stewie Griffin balloon stolen from the Macy's parade, it all makes you feel soooo gooood, you knew they could win number 27 this year, just let the warmth wash over you, it's OK to feel gooood.

Now I'll count backwards from three, and you'll wake up feeling relaxed, rested and happy and you won't know why.

Three....

Two.....

One.....

Wakey, wakey, Ange, time to wake up.

Thanks Yawk, I knew you'd find just the right thing to say. Plus it saves Rule from doing it out loud.
