Handwashings and I went to the Orioles - Yankees game today. It was a beautiful 7-2 victory for the Birds. He got us in free as usual and then hooked us up with 75 cent hot dogs, 75 cent pretzels, 75 cent cokes, and then splurged on one dollar Haagen Dazs bars.
As I took this picture of Sammy at the plate, I said, "Listmaker needs a picture for his Sunday night posting." Handwashings thought that was funny. I don't know. All I do know is that the Yankees have lost 3 out of 4.
As Handwashings pointed out, it is so funny that the Yankees are full of aura and mystique and they refuse to have a mascot, but they love love love their Cotton Eye Joe - who is apparently now Cotton Eye Joey.
From our seats, we were treated to a close up behind the scenes version of "Cotton Eye Joe." We got to see him put on the special Cotton Eye Joe shirt and the special Cotton Eye Joe hat. And then he danced. And then we got to see him take off the special Cotton Eye Joe shirt and the special Cotton Eye Joe hat. Brilliant. Almost as classy as the groundskeepers exhorting 45,000 fans to sing along to "YMCA."
