    ..what is it about the Fordham guys that the Yankees love so much? Or, is it Michael Kay opening the doors for them?

      Knowing very little about Fordham — its location and the fact that most students are locals — the FU/Yankees connection has to be about the makeup of the student body, right? I imagine the random kid from Philly or Boston or Chicago isn’t a Yankees fan but that the majority of kids that go there are from NY/NJ/CT and are fans of the local teams.

      I’ve been to a few games up at Fordham (to watch St. Joseph’s, where a friend of mine was an assistant baseball coach for four years). Not a bad place to just hang out for a few hours. Their ballpark is tiny, only a few rows of bleacher-style seats behind homeplate, but it’s fun to go and foul balls by the dozens make their way into the hands of spectators.

      Yep, I think he taught speech and elocution.
