....this just in: The Yankees have been heard to be whining and criping about having to play a double header today, having had to fly into New York after playing an afternoon game yesterday.
Boo hoo hoo. Not for anything, Yankees, but have you taken a look at the Mets schedule for the past month or so? You wanna talk about grueling? Flying back and forth to California, Colorado, no off days, ridiculous Sunday night ESPN games before long flights out to Cali and then playing the next (really, the same) evening? Jeeze...Not that I'm excusing the Mets play, or anything...or blaming it even remotely on the schedule...I'm merely pointing out the ridiculousness (is that even a word, ridiculousness?) of the Yankee complaints.
And I have news for you, Yankee Babies -- I'm almost certain that most if not all MLB teams have the same scheduling issues. And one of the main reasons these issues exist is to help fund the gigundo salaries most of you receive. What, did you think the money was for nothing? As they say, those who marry for money invariably end up earning it. The same applies here.
Just so I have this straight, before I bestow the award, formally...The Yankees play an AFTERNOON game, in the SAME TIME ZONE, in PITTSBURGH, which is what, maybe an hour and a half flight into New York? And they're complaining about having to play two the next day? Give me a fucky wucky break, as Don Imus used to say.
So for that, folks, the entire Yankee team gets the inaugural Friday Go Fuck Yourself Award.
Yet another reason to hate the Yankees, as if we needed one, thank you very much.
Now, Yankees, go fuck yourselves. Oh, and lose two today, willya?
