Many things have occurred during my absence.
One is the troll cunt made another visit and violated a copyright law and I am in the process of shutting that person down.
Another thing that has happened is the we are changing the way we are doing PATR, but our deadline is the same. We will also include PATR into our segment of This Day in Yankees History and hopefully once we gather all the information we need, we can hire an editor and an publisher so you may buy it on bookshelves with a possibility of a book signing tour.
Of course with all good news, there is bad news, a fellow Yankees fan and my cousin Regina Kenul, who suffers from down syndrome, was recently hit by a car and killed while doing the thing she enjoys most, riding her bike. I am glad to say that I went on one of her bike rides in Long Island. We wound up getting lost and had to ask directions to find our way.
The Yankees on the other hand have won two out of three games against the Cleveland Indians. They won the first game 1-0 thanks to a Robinson Cano home run, won the second one behind Johnny Damon's and Andy Phillips home runs leading the stripe to a 6-1 lead. With Mike Mussina on the mound going for the sweep, they lost 8-4 as Moose got rocked and took his third loss of the season. If Boston is swept by the Twins, we will keep out 1/2 game lead in the East.
My Little League team is still undefeated sporting a 7-0 mark and my managerial record improves to 16-2 over two years. We have our final game on Saturday.
As for me, I finally got my Don Mattingly autographed picture in an envelope personalized by Donnie, and a 500 card box of random Yankees cards including an obviously fake Derek Jeter jersey card. How is it fake? One, the Yankees stripes a darker than the one on the card, and the stripes are sown into the jersey, not placed on by a machine. You can also tell its a fake because the glue came undone and you can see multiple cards underneath of different players. The cutout on the card is done by an amateur since it is uneven and had shreds in it. Plus the five glued cards are uneven. This is a fake, but I am not complaining. I got some really nice cards of present and past players.
Anyway, PATR is still underway and will be presented hopefully before the playoffs. Stay tuned for more updates.
I leave you with Boston trailing the Twins 3-0 in the third inning with two outs and a runner on first. Good day.
