A Special Gift

So yesterday was my birthday…the big 18. I had already received an amazing surprise, which was the Yankee game I went to last Thursday. I had a lovely day and a nice weekend with my family, who always make my day special. Was it selfish to wish for one more thing?

Maybe, but I was entitled to a wish when I blew out the candles.

Now I know it’s bad luck to say what you wished for or whatever, so I’ll just give a little hint:

Ohh yeah.

I don’t know if I should go crazy bragging like I did last time the Yanks sat atop the division, but you know…obviously it’s nice. And they did it just for me. A friend wrote on my facebook for my birthday that it’d be nice if the Yankees could move into first place just for me. And they did.

Thanks boys! I hope you can stay there.

So my birthday was fun…it’s weird being LEGAL haha. It’s one of those special ages.

The Yankees have a guy reaching one of those special ages, too.

Happy 40th birthday, Jorge!

This season has been tough for Jo-Po, and tougher for me to watch. I still think his struggles were because he just couldn’t accept the DH role. He was used to being involved in every single play. Then he found himself sitting on the bench, when he knew he could still catch. It’s sad when guys like Jorge get pushed aside. He’s not the player he used to be, and watching a legend (in my eyes) decline is never easy.

But on Saturday, this old guy showed why we love him so much. He knocked in 6 runs, 4 via a grand slam, and he looked genuinely happy doing so.

Jorge, I hope tonight is a good one for you. I hope the team does for you what they did for me – win – and that you are a part of it.

LOVE YOU, JORGE!

Thanks again, Yanks. Keep up the good baseball! 3 wins in a row, let’s make it 4 tonight!

Happy birthday! First place in the division is always a great present :) Hopefully, as a bonus present, the Yankees will stop treating Jorge like crap. That’d be nice.

Happy birthday! Unfortunately my birthday is Sept. 1…..it’s been a long time since the Jays were in first place for my birthday.

A very happy, healthy birthday to you Miss Virginia… and enjoy your Birthday wish while you can. Don’t know if you looked at the September schedule, but one of your beloved West Coast trips is on tap… yeah! You’re also short an off day in the final two weeks due to those pesky Twinkies. That might make things a bit rough for your ‘Bombers as they fight fatigue, jet lag and just plain ole’ old age.

See what happens when you tell everyone your birthday wish…!

Put Jorge back in the line-up!! He’s an experianced vet who deserves better. Happy b-day btw.
