On Friday, October 22, the lights went out on the 2010 season for the Yankees. The Yanks were just too cock-sure of themselves going in, having handled the Twins easily. But they forgot the old truism: "It ain't over 'til it's over." Interestingly, that was so eloquently stated by Yogi Berra, A member of the same team so many years ago.
The Yankees just plain forgot that Texas, which has never made the World Series, would be hungry. They forgot that it doesn't matter what you did to a team in the regular season; once the playoffs start, the regular season is irrelevant.
George Steinbrenner would have their hides hanging from a wall if he had survived the year. Now, he's looking at the team, shaking his head, wondering, "Where did I go wrong this year?"
It's lights out on NY this year. And I hear the laughter of NY Yankee haters everywhere. And the Jeering is loudest in Texas, Tampa, and Minnesota. Watch for Next Years edition of "AS THE YANKEES SQUIRM."
