One of the downsides to all of the day games the Yankees have been playing lately is that I don’t get to watch them. I try to keep up by following on Twitter and sneaking a peek via MLB.com every so often, but we all know it’s not the same as actually watching the game. I feel almost disconnected from my favorite team. I can get the final score, of course, but it’s just not the same. And lately, the scores have been mostly pretty good, but I feel as if I’m missing out on something special. After all, the team has increased their lead over Tampa Bay over the last two weeks, somehow weathering the injury to A-Rod remarkably well.

But some days are better than others, even if I can’t watch. Some days popping open the final box or game recap are almost as thrilling as watching live. It brings back memories of my youth, when I would grab the morning paper after a midweek night game to find out if the Yankees won. To find out if Reggie or Thurman or Catfish had done something incredible.

Today is one of those days. Nick Swisher, all I can say is THANK YOU for bringing a smile to my face (and a very loud cheer to my coworkers’ ears) during the afternoon grind. Thank you for doing something incredible.

Oh, and thank you for giving me a great excuse to grab a slice of pie on my way home!
