Taik Mee Owt Tu Thuh Bawl Gaim

Fans of the New York Yankees wishing to catch their favorite players in a pre-season game were greeted with an apology statement informing them that Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Johnny Damon and Bernie Williams would not be participating, due to their involvement in The World Baseball Classic. As if traveling to Tampa, Florida to see these big names in baseball perform and finding out they had prior commitments wasn't bad enough, the sign misspelled the team's name printing it as "The New York Yankess". It gives you that warm bubbly feeling inside knowing that many colleges give away free educations to sports athletes in the form of scholarships, for the sake of having an accomplished sports program ... in other words, a winning team. What's really a shame is how many bright young minds will never have the chance to acquire such an education because their families just can't afford the tuition costs. But at least those financially challenged kids can hold their heads high ... they at least know how to spell.

My daughter named her new puppy after Bernie Williams, so you know she was upset about that! They didn't get to watch the whole game, their daughter whined about the heat, and they finally had to take her back to the air conditioned motel. It is sad that a lot of bright children won't get a college education. Can't comment on the spelling error; still get other childs e'dress mixed up "dawnny23" when it's actually "dawnyy23" think she should have used "dawnnyy"
