I Spoil Myself

Thanks to my sponsor, I have been able to treat myself to some early Christmas gifts.
One of the things I got was a program that I will put into use for the 2007 season. This is an automated scorekeeping program that will enable me to not only input a scorecard as the game is running, but also produce reports and stats that I will use through out the season and become more of a stat based blog instead of the constant news reports.
Besides this program that I can't really use until April 3 of next year, I decided to get myself a few things on eBay.
Everyone loves a little something something from their favorite stars, players, or what not. Me, I like autographs.
I already have a few sigs from some old-time players including Don Larson, Phil Ruzzito, Enos Slaughter, Don Mattingly and Reggie Jackson. That wasn't enough, in my books.
So I got ten more. Ten 8x11 signed photos of Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Paul O'Neill, Bernie Williams, and a few other that I can't remember off the top of my head.
I lost bids for an autographed Darryl Strawberry 1996 World Series autographed baseball and a Melky Cabrera autographed baseball bat.
Another thing that I purchased on eBay was an XM Radio Myfi set. I always wanted one of those. I had XM radio in the past, but not a Myfi.
EBay wasn't enough for me. Living in New York means more stores carry Yankees merchandise and more merchandise means I get to splurge.
I went to a local sports store and purchased four Yankees photos in stunning clarity and quality. A photo of Mariano Rivera in mid stride, Don Mattingly hitting a ball, Jeter pumping his fist in the air, and Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio standing side by side.
I also had to get the 5 DVD set of vintage Yankees World Series films which completes my Yankees DVD collection.
And the most unique item I saw, and purchased, is some infield dirt from Yankee Stadium encased in a coin authenticated by
So that's my story. I am spoiled in Yankees merchandise and they are prospering with their profits.

I have, and always will be, a true Yankees fan. Don't give me that bandwagon crap; bandwagon fans are for people who need to belong.
