Must be some transplanted Yankee fans.  :)

Some notes about that game:

- It was $1 hot dog night last night, so as bad as it was, it could have been much worse if the 3 dogs/person limit had not been instituted before the game. (It wasn't because of Chuck, they'd just been running out when they'd done this promotion earlier in the season.)

- Do you suppose that in a situation like this that the Yanks could have pushed the matter and weasled for the win? I mean over-reacting to stuff being thrown to draw the forfeit? I understand that you can get hurt, that throwing stuff has no place, etc etc etc, but once a warning has been issued what's to keep him from feigning terror over the next few wrappers that blow across the field to see if he can get a win that way? You hear talk about using any means necessary to win games, but is this too bush league for anyone to consider trying?

- MN is quite far from NYC, but there are plenty of teams that are close enough to make Rob's idea worth considering. Think about it: it's Sept, the Mets are having trouble with the Phils and the race it tight, people are staying away from the Vet in droves, so it would just take one frat-sized train load of Gotham's youth to pull it off. Now *that* is a short train ride and cheap enough to make it practical.

I think if the game had gone on long enough for the umps to have to pull the Yanks off one more time, they would have been really close to giving the game to the Yanks. They are baseball umpires, after all. Three strikes and you're out.
