Already Sad

Already Sad

I was already sad/depressed. A former brother-in-arms is being buried today and I am not attending the funeral, but I’m certainly thinking about his family and the memories I have of him. Then this little tidbit of info catches my eye.

There are two types of New Yorkers. The ones that know their team always has the potential to go to the playoffs (Yankees fans) and the ones that know that no matter what, their team will fail miserably when it’s all said and done (Mets fans). I’m of the former, a born Yankees fan, and Mariano Rivera is someone who I have watched from day one. I will tune in this season, and when the season ends, I will definitely cry like a baby. I hate losing a player, be it to injury or retirement. Here’s wishing Mo has an amazing send-off. It would be nice if a parade and another ring were part of the package.

R.I.P Bill, you will be missed.
