ahh yes, one of my drugs is the new york yankees. they are making me sweat this year, and it looks like this will be the first time in a long time that they won't win the division. but it doesn't even matter to me right now because last night was an incredibly gratifying night for a yankee fan: jeter beat the schilling and the sox by rocking a 3-run homer over the stupid green monster. jeter is so clutch. and then mariano teased the sox in the bottom of the ninth, allowing the bases to get loaded with big papi at the plate, and got him to pop out. that was sweet. and i got the munchies.
but the first high of the day came when the steelers (in their super-sweet retro uniforms) destroyed the buffalo bills. now, i mentioned last week that i couldn't tell if the steelers were good or the browns were just really really bad. i almost have to say the same thing this week, but with a caveat: i can't keep saying this. at some point we have to just come out and say waht is obvious on the field: the steelers are pretty good and are making average teams look terrible. how they will fare against the good teams? we'll have to wait to find out. but, for now, let us revel in this victory.
2-0, and 2 1/2 games up in the wildcard,
