My Pinstriped Gang

Captain's blog, supplemental:

I don't measure time like most people do. For most people, the year begins in January and ends in December. For me, in most years the year begins in August and ends in May or June, though my year ended a couple of weeks ago this time.

Why is that? I measure time by sports seasons. For me, the beginning of BYU fall football camp marks the beginning of a whole new year, and it ends once the Jazz have been eliminated from the playoffs (I don't want to go into that part right now).

You're probably asking yourself right now, "what about the months between June (or April) and August? That's a good question. Those are good months for my sports psyche, because it's a time when I can just watch sports without being at risk for a coronary (except in World Cup years).

What's the point of this post? I'm glad it's baseball season. And in honor of the return of our national pastime, it's time for a... TOP 10 LIST! I'm going to list my 10 favorite Yankees that I've watched in my lifetime (complete with pictures). So, here we go!
