A Time for Remembrance

It is with great sadness that thefoulline.com announces the passing of the once proud New York Yankees franchise. The Yankees passed away at their home last night after a long struggle with what doctors have diagnosed as suckus maximus. At the time of their death they were 104 years old.

The Yankees have called Bronx, New York, home, although they have spent considerable time over the years in Boston, Cleveland, and Tampa Bay.

Through the past seven years, the Yankees have been in poor health. Even with the best personnel that money can buy, they have not been able to recover. I think we can all remember 2004, when the Yankees had a considerable choking episode. We all thought that the end was near. But, showing their resolve, the Yankees were able to battle back to lose in the first round of the playoffs the last three seasons.

The Yankees were active in the community, participating in noted public programs such as Take a Stripper to Work Day, and hosting 55,000 unemployed high school dropouts at Yankee Stadium 81 days a year. The Yankees have even allowed a mentally challenged man to run the franchise since 1972. They were true philanthropists.

The Yankees are survived by Melky Cabrera, Wilson Betemit, Ron Villone and Shelley Duncan.

There will be a viewing in Tampa, Florida, in February 2008. In lieu of flowers, family members are asking for donations to be made to:
The Roger Clemens Institute for Money Grubbing Whores
21 Traitor Way
Cash, TX 28,000,000

    I don’t understand your comment. Are you trying to say “were the Red Sox dead for 86 years?” If that’s your question, then my answer is.. no the Red Sox weren’t dead, they were on life support. But the Sox are way stronger then the Yanks and were able to pull through.
    Are you the only Canadian Yankee fan or are there more?

    haha good call on the canadian thing. But how can the sox be way stronger than the yanks, when the yanks get to the playoffs every year? sure their not winning it all, but thats certainly much more than you can say for the red sox.

    The Sox being stronger, the yanks being weaker..It doesn’t matter to me. I may have mentioned this before, but I hate the Yankees. I always have, and I always will. As for making the playoffs each year. Do you think that this is the Yankees only goal? Was is it in their game plan in Spring Training to back into the playoffs? Of course not. The Yanks are built each year to win the World Series. When you go 7 years in a row without winning. It is a big deal in NY. Especially when they have the highest payroll in the league by 50 million dollars. With the Yankees poised to lose several all-stars and a hall of fame manager this offseason. I can honestly say that the yankees are weaker then the Sox.
    Thanks as always for your comments.
