Mitt Romney and Yankees Fans

Disclaimer:  My blog is NOT about sports and I did NOT watch Game 1 of the ALCS last night between the Tigers and the Yankees.

But I knew they were playing and this morning I saw this article when I turned on the computer:

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/detroit-tigers-beat-new-york-yankees-alcs-game-1-12-innnings-derek-jeter-breaks-ankle-101312

Don’t bother clicking on it. I’ll paraphrase it for you in one short paragraph:

Last night, the Tigers beat the Yankees in 12 innings. But now about the Yankees. Derek Jeter broke his ankle and joins Mariano Rivera on the DL. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. A-Rod. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. Swisher. Granderson. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. The Yankees. Oh, the Yankees!

I can hear the Yankee fans out there saying, “she’s just resentful because we’re the best team in baseball.” (It’s much like Mitt Romney stating that middle-class and poor people are jealous of rich people like him because he has more money than we do.) It’s just not true. I’m just tired of the Yankees headlining every article about baseball, ever.

Last night was the Tigers’ night. And Mr. Romney, if trickle-down economics works, why don’t you pull your gazillions of dollars out of your Cayman Island bank accounts and start a company that employs American workers? I’m not jealous of you. I just think someone whose annual income is $11,000,000 and that income is INTEREST ONLY should take some responsibility and do something helpful with that money. In his words, it’s not an economic issue, it’s a moral issue.

It obviously depends on how you define morality.

Go Tigers!
