IJMC Picking on a Deluge of Yankees

               IJMC - Picking on a Deluge of Yankees

Sometimes life throws us a curve ball. Sometimes, that curve ball is just 
a coincidence. You see, last night I watched an old episode of The 
X-Files that I had not yet seen. The episode revolved around an alien who 
played baseball. So what is that a coincidence of? Well, in the show, the 
Yankees baseball team was scouting our character...and then today, when I 
send out this batch of posts, two of the emails in the queue both pick on 
Yankees...and I have not sent out a post poking fun at Yankees in a long 
time! So, in the end, just a coincidence...or is it part of some great 
global conspiracy determined to bring the South to power again? Shut up 
Mulder...                                                           -dave
