I grew up in the Bronx and I usually root for New York teams even though I have lived in Massachusetts for a long time. I love baseball and I am a big Yankees fan. One nice thing about being in New York this month is that my sports allegiance fits the place I am in. When you live someplace but you don’t root for the home team, it can feel strange. Also most of the media coverage is slanted towards the home team. For many years I have had to listen to stories about Red Sox Nation.
While here in New York I can just turn on the TV and watch the game, no problem . I am not out of market. Today I watched C.C. Sabathia beat the Red Soxs . Our magic number is one. I love being in Yankee universe.
