The coronation begins, a tad early perhaps?

Woah, woah, steady on there fellas. The sports pages are awash with references to the mighty Yankees 'vanquishing October demons' and otherwise righting their ship by sweeping all before them in the playoffs. The eulogistic rubbish flooding the sports.coms this morning is astonishingly pre-emptive.

Vanquishing October demons? Really? After nine innings of playoff action that's where we are at already? Frankly, the Yankees should be embarrassed the only won 7-2 last night.

Think about it.

How could the Yankees lose last night?

  • They were at home
  • They had their ace on the mound
  • They were playing a team they went 8-0 against in the regular season
  • They were playing a team that started a rookie
  • They were playing a team that finished an emotionally draining extra inning playoff game the night before!

With all those factors in their favour, how on earth could anyone expect anything but a Yankee white-wash last night? With that in mind, why oh why are the bobbing head idiots already crowning the Yankees on the basis of one playoff game?

It is getting increasingly hard to find decent sporting journalism online. The knee jerk, reactionary rubbish that flows like sewage seconds after something happens is hard to stomach. It's Fox News like in its vacuousness. The Yankees beat a tired team that just travelled after a tough game the night before?! Good God, let's call them World Champions right now! Get it done already!

Somebody save us.

Thanks for the confirmation, Cormac. It's why I won't even look at the NY papers again.

Phil from NY, don't bother posting any more inane comments, all I have to say to you is, 2004.

Bye bye.
