Awww... the Yankee faithful are giving Bernie Williams a standing ovation as he comes to bat for the first time in this game. That's so sweet. He's DH-ing this game, and it could be the last time he appears in a Yankee uniform. He flied out to left field, but it was still a nice moment. And since he's not in the field, it's highly unlikely that he'll do something that will engender any boos. Good for them. I have a lot of respect for Yankee fans. Not all of them, of course. I've seen a number who have booed children who have the audacity to wear paraphenilia from the opposing teams. But, Yankee fans know their stuff and they are loyal. That said, I do enjoy the suicidal looks seen around the city when the Yankees lose two in a row and/or fail to make it to, let alone win the World Series.
