Just for Fun

For probably the tenth time including the original one except for the time it took to run home from school, just watched Don Larsen's perfecto in the 5th game of the '56 WS. YES shows replays pretty often. Now just imagine had the Yankees not won that Series would it still be as profound in Yankee Lore? After all if you listen to some sportscasters or talk show hosts a dramatic performance just loses its luster if the team doesn't win the game or series. Leyritz's home run in the '96 WS or Tino's grand slam against the Padres? WOuld they be forgotten had the Yankees lost? Do we remember the 2 home runs Tony Kubek hit in game 3 of the '57 series; do we remember Skowron or Berra's home runs in game 7 or that one pitch by Ralph Terry that crushed my heart? Do we think about all the saves Mariano had in '01 or the blooper off Gonzalexzs bat? Can you tell it's a boring day and I'm already going through Yankee withdrawal? Going to be long, long off season.smileys with beer
