    If you have to ask then it is way beyond your understanding.

    And I didn't title the thread nor really paid it much attention.

    Serious - certainly not in the larger scheme of things - but since I played it and still derive my living from it - it's very serious to me.

    LOL thats what I am saying frog..

    Class? Sweetie you are taking this way too seriously. This is only a message board and this is only a post about the Yankees that is being used to express our views on the World Series. I never called anyone classless for the title of the topic, so why does my MUTTS term upset you so? Oh yes..I know why.. Because the MUTTS suck.. LOL Cum on get real. Was it really necassary to question my class over something so.. silly? And why would you expect class from me? I am after all a Skankee fan...

    Call us skankees all you want, you know the old saying sticks and stones... We maybe Skankees but we are the best damn Skankees in NY
    So THERE :)

    Kisses
    LETS GO YANKEES!! (Skankees, Spankees ,whatever Just cant call us LOSERS!!!)

    Gee - really thought you would have more class than to denigrate another team or the team name.. The name is the Mets not the Mutts - likes its the Yankees not the Skankees. (only time you'l hear me say that)..

    And I am not a Mets fan I am a baseball fan. I played the game for Chrissakes.

    It's like if I usd a deragatory term on this board.

    And the yankees haven't won anything yet.

    The only reason I'd like to see Ariz win (you didn't read this here) is because one of my oldest friends is on the team.

    Expected more class.

    Sheesh.. Must really suck to be a Mutts fan huh? :)

    Actually, in 1969 there was a sign at Met games during the series which said There is a God. And He is a Met Fan. I bleieve Seaver said the same thing in the newspapers. My memory is a little hazy here.

    Gee Kimmie between this and your quoting of Tug McGraw's " Ya Gotta Believe" you should just come out of the closet and admit you're really a Met fan.

    The bottom of the tenth. Three to three, and Derek Jeeter steps up to the plate.

    I fall asleep and wake up the next morning, not knowing who won. The news keeps missing as I'm dashing about getting ready for work, and FINALLY as I'm pulling into a parking space at work, I learn what happened from the Howard Stern show, of all places.

    You are a great Poet, your feet show it they are Longfellows.

    Congrats, I love it.

    I want the Yanks to win only if Clemens gets beaned with a line drive.
    Lets go Mets
    Kimmie, I am really Mike Piazza and I already wear Mets underwear.
