Yankees Run This Town!

Just by that title alone, you already know why I have this New York (the "Empire State") map postcard for you. The Yankees just bagged their 27th World Series Championship, beating the Phillies in Game 6 with a score of 7-3. Who's their hero? Hideki "Godzilla" Matsui...MVP!

Yankees pride can't be prouder than the decorated doors of this sporting goods store in my town selling official Yankees gear:

Even Darth Vader is a Yankees fan!

The ultimate souvenir shirt:

The official Yankees World Series shirt is $25 at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Have you heard the remixed version of Jay-Z's song "Run This Town?" It was recently reworked to rejoice the Yankees' victory with every player's name in the lyrics! Listen to it here.

I'm going to watch the game on youtube! I'm such a bad baseball fan. It's the whole living in France thing. When you're not around it you forget how much you love it! Pass me a hot dog with extra relish and mustard please. Let's play ball!

A most gorgeous map card, but the whole Yankees thing is lost on me, I'm afraid. It goes straight over my head. It's only reading the comments that I realise it's baseball. :)

Love the hand drawn maps with points of interest. Your NY example is a nice one. Happy PFF.

I'm a Red Sox fan so I nearly ignored the series this year hehe However, I did watch Game 6 and Matsui definitely sealed the deal!

That's a nice map card, but I am NOT a Yankees fan.

Cheers for the Yankees!

That's a nice postcard too!

FF, did Hideki make history when he won the MVP title as the first Asian in World Series history to bag the said title?

Hooray for our Hero Hideki!! Ahm, doesn't sound nice, was trying to emulate you hehehehe.

Nice postcard, by the way! *evil grin*
