Opening Day, my Christmas, is finally upon us, and with the Giants set to open their season today in Milwaukee, I fully expect them to win their fourth world championship in seven years.
As boys growing up in the1950s and 1960s, my friends and I used to play softball and football in John Mullaly Park. It was the largest green space in the neighborhood, stretching from McClellan Street south to E. 164th Street, between River and Jerome Avenues.
This fanaticism did not reflect any athletic ability on my part. Far from it! Growing up, like Bernie Sanders, in a lower middle class area of Brooklyn during the 1940s, I was often pressed into joining baseball games with the other boys in my neighborhood.

As a Yankees fan, I have admired your work on the field. You are a gifted athlete. However, I have to say that I don't think I've ever been in more awe of you as a man than the day you released your public statement of your impending treatment for alcohol abuse.
The narrative that the Mets are lovable losers has probably been seen by people outside New York as one of those strange New York things like saying "on line" instead of "in line," walking fast or knowing a good bagel from a bad one.

It has been said that the only thing that really matters in life is who you become and the effect you have on other people. Berra's positive effect was as powerful as his muscular forearms. He was a man of uncommon decency and stood strong for equality and inclusion.
By far the most important takeaway Berra shared with me was this: Moving forward didn't mean leaving the memory of his parents behind. He could play ball and be a husband and father -- all while keeping the memory of his parents alive.
A great talent evaluator like Rickey, coming to the end of his tenure with one team, KNOWING he is soon going to take over another team, decides not to sign a player with the first team and then, upon moving to the new team right away sends the same offer he refused to make before?
A few years ago on Yogi Berra's birthday, I tweeted out a birthday greeting with a link to a YouTube video of his career highlights. A British Twitter...
The Yankees weren't supposed to be in the playoff mix, at least not this late into the season. After Sunday's win against the Tampa Bay Rays and Monday's win against the Baltimore Orioles, they are still .5 games out of first place in the American League East behind the red-hot Toronto Blue Jays.
