Awesome! I can smell the dawgs n beer as I look at the pics.

The pic of the 4 young Yanks fans is great.. Notice how the lil guys keep their hat brims "joba-style". Possible caption there is Hey! Where's my jersey?

I'd like to know what that security guard is thinking. heh.

I love how pissed that one kid looks. Almost as tough as the security guard. And how about Reggie, the old man, in his uniform, having a catch. That is so funny to me. No matter how old these guys get they still love putting on the uniform.

[2] haha.. I didn't realize that was Reggie, although I was wondering. Now that you've named him, it's too damn obvious.

It hard to imagine the year 2030, when a 55-year old Jeter and Arod are chilling with the team on OTD. But when it does, we'll be watching and telling our grandkids how awesome they were as players.

Sad news about Jose Lima.

Heart attack at 37? In an athlete?

[4] wow. that's crazy.. 37?

I remember in '01 while living in TX, we went to all 6 of the Rangers-Astros games. The 3 at Enron Field were awesome. At the time, Lima had fallen a thousand miles from his 1999 All-Star form. He made a comment to the press along the lines of "if I could pitch well naked, then I'd pitch naked!". He really was pitching bad at that point. RIP
