Yesterday, Josh Pettitte broke the news that his father is going to have his number retired on August 23rd at Yankee Stadium. Andy Pettitte day is sure to be a sellout crowd, as Pettitte was very beloved in the Bronx.
Yanks likely to retire Bernie Williams' No. 51 and Jorge Posada's No. 20, according to source.— Andrew Marchand (@AndrewMarchand) February 16, 2015
"Source" has also said that Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada, the final members of the Yankees incredible homegrown youth movement during the Dynasty Era, will also get their numbers retired as well. Monument Park is sure filling up fast. Hey, I have an idea. Maybe they should make it bigger and beautiful. Perhaps destroy the Mohegan Sun Sports Bar monstrosity that's there? Yes. Yes, I think I'd be all for that.
Comments of the Day
As Tanya cried out for helped, the long time listener would not listen to her pleas, fearing the cold. All hope was lost when suddenly...
Victor with a chainsaw to the rescue!
Hmmmm, that would be important.
There is always hope!
On the plus side, they might need to remove Right Field Bleachers Giant Steinbrenner Face in order to make room for all the new numbers.
GIF of the Day
A team effort from noonoo and myself provided the celebratory Andy Pettitte GIFs. Well done, us!
Honorable Mod Mention
Caitlin provided some much needed optimism yesterday. She wins the HMM award.
- Out of the three numbers that are suppose to be retired this year, which one ceremony would you go to if you could only choose one?
- Name some of your favorite video game memories, if any.
I cannot stress how much I enjoy this man's acapella work. This song is no exception, as the original Dragon Roost Island song from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is one of my all time favorite tracks from any Zelda game. As always, please link us your Song of the Day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. We are only four days away from pitchers and catchers reporting. Exciting times!
