Yesterday, I wore my “Yankees” jacket for the first time in 2012.
Actually, it was the first time that I have worn it in a while. How long? Read on.
When I put on the jacket, I realized there was something in one of the pockets. When I pulled it out, I realized that it was my ticket stubs from Game 5 of the 2011 ALDS between the Yankees and the Tigers.
Yes, the game that everyone in Yankeeland thought was a gimmie win – and the game where New York had:
- The bases loaded with one out in the 4th and could not score.
- The bases loaded with one out in the 7th and A-Rod struck out.
And, in the end, the Yankees lost, 3-2.
That was four months ago – the last time that I wore my Yankees jacket.
Like a lot of Yankees fans, I have put that game far away in my memory. Now, I wonder, is that a mistake?
