Lifelong Yankees and Packers fan (and, since 2011, shareholder), working in New York City during the day and writing for b/r at night.

The first Yankee game I ever went to was at Yankee Stadium on September 25th, 1996. Actually, it was a doubleheader, and the Bombers beat the Brewers 19-2 in the first game to clinch the AL East (David Cone got the win, Tino Martinez had 5 RBIs, and the Yankees scored 10 runs in the second inning, for those who were wondering). I've loved the Yankees ever since.

Since then, I've graduated from Penn (Go Quakers) and I now work as a Legal Assistant in New York City, but no matter where I live and no matter what I do, my greatest passion is still the Yankees.

    Hey Jake, just wanted to let you know that I linked you in a piece on Russell Martin. I used your most recent piece on Joe Mauer.
