PSA Comments of the Day 2/17/15: Time passes, people move

It was confirmed that the Yankees will be retiring the numbers of Andy Pettitte, Bernie Williams, and Jorge Posada this year. Willie Randolph will also get a plaque of his own in Monument Park. Nice. Pitchers and catchers report in Babe Ruth days.

"Time passes, people move... Like a river's flow, it never ends." -Sheik

Considering all the action that Monument Park is going to see this year, I thought this quote from Sheik would be appropriate. Yesterday, the Yankees confirmed that Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada will also have their numbers officially retired along with Andy Pettitte's number. Bernie's #51 will be retired on May 24th, Posada's #20 will be retired on August 22nd, and Pettitte's #46 will be retired on August 23rd. Considering the incredible history of these players, tickets will definitely be going for a lot of money. In addition to this, Willie Randolph will get a plaque in Monument Park on Old Timer's Day this year. That day is already one of the hottest tickets of the year, so this celebration is just an extra added and very well deserved bonus. Of course, the hottest ticket of the regular season will probably be reserved for the day a certain former Yankee shortstop officially has his number required. Just a hunch.

Comments of the Day

We could definitely use these type of games from Alex Rodriguez and CC Sabathia this year.

Sources confirm, Tanya is undefeated in video games!

Don't deny us of this, Marlins. Your Dinger God is hungry!

Don't blame me. I voted for Kodos.

I'm pretty sure it's always time to Blame Beltran.

Oh natteringnabob, you cad you!

GIF of the Day

They're not even a real country anyway!

I am, admittedly, cheating on this GOTD by giving it to myself. Don't care, as I love it and I'm hoping it's blue by the time this post goes up!

The Bernie Williams Swag-Slide is still a thing of beauty. #51 should be retired just for that alone.

Honorable Mod Mention

I'm giving it to myself, just to spite John for his "Who is to blame" post. Is it childish of me? Yep!

Song of the Day

Gerudo Valley by Taylor Davis

There are many different renditions of Gerudo Valley, as the original was very iconic to the Zelda franchise when The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released. The 25th Anniversary rendition and the latest rendition from Super Smash Bros. are both pretty excellent. I felt that Taylor Davis did an amazing homage to the song though. Plus the video is pretty awesome as well. 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 three days away from pitchers and catchers reporting. Oh, and Derek Jeter was the shortstop I was talking about above.

Regain your lost time!
