October 21 2000: Where Were You This Time Last Year?

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) For last year’s World Series, the Yanks had to travel to Atlanta and back. While following the games, I traveled even further. My best friend from high school planned her wedding for October 1999, and in millions of details involved in […]

October 14 2000: Radio Is The Lifeline

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) I’ve always loved the radio, ever since I was a kid. My mother always kept the radio on in the car when we went places. Back then, 77 WABC was a music station, and we’d sing along to popular tunes while […]

Sept 30 2000: No Fear

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) I was driving through Connecticut on a business trip last week and I almost pulled over at the side of the road and wept, as the Yankees were suffering another crushing loss. But then someone hit a home run and I […]

Sept 16 2000: Very Superstitious

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) So when some friends who were going to come with me to a game recently had a change of plans, I ended up with extra tickets. These happened to be tickets for a recent Yankees-Red Sox game at Fenway Park, and […]

Sept 9 2000: It’s All Because of My Dad

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) Major League Baseball released a poll recently showing that some large percentage of women consider going to baseball games an ideal family activity. I guess I would be one of them. My whole family is Yankee fans, and I love getting […]

Sept 2 2000: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) For our summer vacation this year, after taking in a few games at Yankee Stadium, my boyfriend and I loaded up our car and headed for The Jersey Shore. We figured there was the baseball part of the trip, and then […]

August 29 2000: A Night With The Baby Bombers

I think I have met the Yankees’ biggest fan. He’s not a Bleacher Creature, not an ANSKY guy, and not the fella in the upper deck who bangs the frying pan for good luck. He’s ten years old, his name is Andrew, and he loves the Staten Island Yankees. Yeah, Staten Island. I finally got […]

August 12 2000: When Your Friends Aren’t Yankee Fans

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) It’s hard to be humble when you like the Yankees, isn’t it? We’ve got bragging rights for being the current World Champs, and there’s also the fact that the Bombers are “the most storied franchise in sports history.” As such, even […]

July 29 2000: The Quintessential Yankee Stadium Experience

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) I have a dream sometimes. In this dream, a genie gives me the power to transport myself instantly to one place on Earth, any time I want. You know where I’d choose? Not my house or my job. I’d choose Yankee […]

July 15 2000: It’s Amazing What They Can Do With Plastic

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) I bought a gift for my boyfriend last weekend. No, not box seats at the Stadium or a Bernie Williams jersey. A Wiffle Ball. A recent article in Yankees Magazine said David Cone learned to pitch as a kid with one. […]

July 1 2000: Cinema In The Rain

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced here by permission of Ultrastar.) I looked at my boyfriend. “You know, the video store closes in five minutes,” I said. “What did you have in mind?” he asked. “We could rent a baseball movie…” He tossed a five dollar bill to me, and I ran […]

June 17 2000: Things To Do On A Rainy Day

(This column originally appeared at www.yankeesxtreme.com, Yankees Xtreme. Reproduced by permission of Ultrastar.) So, you may have noticed that the weather this season has been as cold and wet as a Pepsi spilled down your back by the guy behind you in the upper deck. The Yankees postponed their home opener, and all season long […]
