Congratulations to the pinstripes.
I grew up with my Dad working at Yankees stadium. Until I was about 7 years old, I would tell everyone that he was a baseball player. But as I got older I realized all that goes on behind the scenes to make Yankee Stadium the force that it has been all these years. His coworkers call me “Centerplate,” and when I hear it I think about the times I’ve been there, and my Dad telling me how electric it is to be there when they win the World Series.
This playlist is dedicated to all of the Yankees, Matsui for playing the series of a lifetime, the true talent that is Johnny Damon (I take back all the crap I talked about you when you were on the Red Sox), and Mariano, The Sandman. It’s also dedicated to all of the concession stands, the vendors, the sports bars, the sweepers, the fieldmen.
And above all, the fans. Go crazy at the parade, it’s our time.
