Yankees take game one

That was probably one of the most impressive lineups I have ever seen in my life! It was simply relentless. And how about Derek Jeter, stepping it up a notch in the post season, as he always does, and going 5-for-5 (2 singles, 2 doubles, and a home run).

I was on the phone with Doug for part of the game, and he was making fun at me because I kept saying redundant things like: “And how about Jeter! He’s gone 4-for-4 and been on base every time!” (Duh!) The Fox feed in Seattle was also several seconds earlier than my feed. Doug would say something like “Uh-oh!” and three seconds later, I’d see someone on the Tigers get a hit.

Regardless, the Yankees more or less dominated the game and I was very pleased. I’m looking forward to tonight’s game just as much.
