Yes, babies are gurgling, children are playing and smiling, formerly sullen folk are whistling happily on their way to work or play, and a general feeling of harmony is floating in azure skies. The Yanks claimed their 27th Major League Baseball World Series title, toppling the Phillies 4 games to 2, winning the final game by a score of 7-3. Ah, sweet joy!

Now, all the Yankee haters are going to say “Of course they won–look at all the money they spent.” These are the same people who previously said “Hah. They’ve spent hundreds of millions and they still can’t win.” Sorry, folks, you can’t have it both ways. Get over it. Me? I’m gonna savor the victory all the way through to spring training, one of the first steps toward winning #28 next season. More later.
