but the sun is shining, the birds are singing and all is right with the world. Why? Because the Yankees lost the ALCS, 4 games to 2. It was especially nice to see A-roid take a called third strike to end the game — call it poetic justice. Watching Jeter go 0-for-4 was also pretty sweet.

I am a Mets fan first, a Red Sox fan second, and a “Whoever’s playing the Yankees” fan third.  So, since the Rangers were the “Whoever” this year, I became a Rangers fan.  I went to WFAN.com to hear Steve Somers gloat, and Yankee fans are already calling to whine.  It’s a beautiful thing.

For the time being, life is pretty darned good. God bless Texas.
