Today is a celebration of everything that truly matters.
It is a reminder of who we are, where we come from, and where we are headed.
Today is a rousing annunciation of how the things we have in common are greater than our differences; these are the things that create our common identity and the sense of unity that have preserved us in hours of darkness, and these are the things that will continue to guide us as we move forward into the 21st century.
Today is George Steinbrenner's birthday. It is his vision of dominance that has fueled the Yankees for 36 years, and this vision has become pinstriped creed.
The Yankees have won 8 of 9, and they sit 2 games behind Boston for the division.
Eyes on the prize.
