      Greetings from Annapolis, MD. Yes, we are everywhere. As a former military member, I have been stationed in various states and have always seen a strong presence of Yankees fans.
      Keep up the good work. I enjoy visiting the site and the topics you write about.
      By the way, this is my first ever post on this site. I have visited frequently, just never registered. Once again, good job on this site. Well done.

      Nope, but that’s where the server is… When I log into MSN, I get the weather for the St Louis area

      Taiwan, Taipei

      Must be CMW fan.

      I guess I didn’t log on recently enough to get a hit for Poughkeepsie, NY.

      Taiwan, Taipei…

      Actually, I know who that one is…

      It’s one person…who, according to the handle they use here, which they also use everywhere else that they post, must spend about 12 hours a day doing nothing else but sitting on the computer posting comments to every baseball site, blog, and discussion forum on the internet. This person has comments – everywhere. (I guesss there’s nothing else to do in Taiwan?)

      And, funny enough, many of their comments on other sites are ripping me.

      They recently lost their rights to comment here because it was brought to my attention that this person has been lifting pictures of me off this blog, and posting them in a discussion forum on another Yankees site, making comments about my appearance.

      And, at first, I laughed at that…writing it off as miscreant and immature behavior. But, then I saw that they also lifted pictures of me with my kids and posted them there as well. And, that crossed the line.

      You want to rip me on other sites? That’s fine. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. You want to make fun of the way I look? Hey, I can’t stop you. But, when you start bringing family members into it…well, again, like I said, I’ll be damned if I will then let you post on my site.

      @ Steve Lombardi:
      agreed, that’s all kinds of messed up. I hope it’s not someone i recognize. Out of curiosity, how are you stopping them from commenting? Blocking their ip? Or did u just ban that 1 account and they could just make another one

      Wow… All kinds of crazy people in this world. I thought Donnie & Chewie were bad

    11. June 10th, 2009 | 5:47 pm

      I try not to block IPs – because that might block someone else who did nothing wrong. And, anyone who tries to create another account, after being banned, will have that new account closed. It’s pretty easy to figure out when someone tries this – and it’s not issue to keep banning them until they get tired of trying to play games.

      Hey, I’ve said it before…

      There’s always good and bad with providing a watering hole on the Internet. I’ve met some wonderful people through the site – and I know that others have met each other and established friendships from those meetings. However, there are also people who surf the ‘net who have severe mental or emotional issues. And, when you open up your cyber-doors, you’re going to have to deal with them at times as well. And, that’s something that rarely brings joy into one’s life.

      That’s the internet, right?

      @ Steve Lombardi: I just did a web search for you to see if there was anyone commenting about you on other sites…. All I could find is that you double as a Pro Wrestler whose stage name is The Brooklyn Brawler. Apparently the Brawler’s job is to lose almost every time he goes into the ring.

    14. June 10th, 2009 | 6:28 pm

      The Seattle, WA is me…. i live in SoCal but my companies’ proxy is in Seattle… :-))

      @ Steve Lombardi:

      thats awful Steve… what pleasure one gets by getting personal is beyond me.. whatever happened to the ‘agree to disagree’ idea…

      I’m assuming I’m Sioux Falls, South Dakota based on me checking it at work, as that is company headquarters. It’s odd because this site was blocked by Surf Patrol and within a month or so that block was lifted- it smells like a setup 🙂

      The Brooklyn Brawler, oddly enough, wore Yankees gear to the ring. Terrible wrestler that supposedly worked his way up the food chain by sleeping with a male booker- nice company to be in, Steve! 🙂

      I should have said this…
      I took out the multi-lines. So, in the cut of 100, there were many, many “New York, New York” hits, and some dupes on the “New Jersey” spots – and I only counted once for each location.
