To all you Yankees fans, nicely done this month. What was once an 11.5 game Red Sox lead over you has been reduced to 1.5. Of course, October is coming so it is business as usual for my Sox. All year they have been kicking ass and now…Jeez. Anyway, I know this has nothing to do with finances, but I had to write it somewhere and you are the lucky ones who have to read it. In the spirit of the Yankees spending so much on their team, I leave you with this quote from Senator Everett Dirksen:
“A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon it adds up to real money.”
Money can buy you a good team, as the Yankees can attest to. But it cannot buy you a good end to the regular season, as the Red Sox falter come every September no matter how much money they spend. Come on guys!
Have a good one everyone…
