Today, the copy machine in our building was broken. So I went across the street to the preschool building. And I was shocked yet quite pleased to see a large poster of Johnny Damon in the lobby. A Boston poster in a New York school? I couldn't be more proud to be an employee at a school that would do this! I was so overjoyed that it took me a few moments to even question why the poster was even there. Then I realized it was a poster promoting America's libraries. And even stinking Yankee fans have to admit that libraries are good.
But then I noticed something quite disturbing. Some prankster had made it look like Damon was reading the book How to Play Baseball by Derek Jeter. I had to admit that this was pretty funny. But there is no way that I was going to let that shit stand. So I got to work and printed out the cover of The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty, the night in question is Game 7 of the 2001 World Series. I haven't read the book but I figured this book would be more to Mr. Damon's liking.
Click on the images to make them larger. Johnny deserves it.
I was quite pleased with my work. However, not even 90 minutes later, the curriculum director of the preschool came in and scolded me for taking down her work. She did this in somewhat of a good-natured manner but I'm not sure if she was amused or not. Regardless, she left the change stay so I win! Down with the Yankees. Go Red Sox!
Preschool Director did tell me that she was working on getting the poster out of the lobby. Sometimes even an educator's love of reading comes second to having her nose rubbed in the worst postseason collapse of all time.
