Ball Game Over!!! The Yankees Win The World Series for the 27th Time!!!

They did it again! Congratulations Bronx Bombers on your 27th World Series Championship. Enjoy the celebrations and I'll see you at the Yankees parade tomorrow.

The Yankees celebrating their 27th World Series Title

I watched my team be crowned the World Champions of baseball by beating the defending champions, The Philadelphia Phillies, 7-3 in game six at their gorgeous new ball park, capturing their first title since 2000. For a Yankee fan, it felt like forever.

I'm feeling a bit tired from staying up so late all week, but I'm beyond thrilled for my favorite team.

I've been a Yankee fan since 1977, before most of these players were even born. I'll always remember my first game. It was a double-header against the Oakland A's. I sat in the upper decks with my Dad, sun beaming down on us. We stayed for both games, and I think they split them. I've been a loyal fan ever since.

New York is ready to party again. The players and millions of fans will celebrate together during the New York classic ticker-tape parade up the Canyon of Heros in lower Manhattan on Friday starting at 11 am. The parade starts on Broadway at Battery Place and continues northbound to Chambers Street, with showers of confetti showering Derek, Andy, Mo and Jorge and the rest of the world champs along the way.

Following the parade, Mayor Mike, who was at The Stadium last night, said he will present keys to the city to the champs at a City Hall ceremony right after.

I am so excited to take part in this most incredible parade. I went in 1998 and it was so exhilarating. Looks like the weather will shine brightly over the festivities. Looks like it's going to be a bright, crisp fall day.

What a night! What a series! Thanks for the wonderful season and the lasting memories.

  3. We all should've gone to the parade and cheered our brains out. What an exciting season they gave us.

    People can complain that the Yankees "bought" another championship but the Steinbrenners put their money into the best talent around and we thanked them by filling the seats.

    Repeat, repeat.

  4. Really good article, thank you for sharing, I will always look at the future, too talented.
