It's 1977 for me


While I agree with a few others the 1978 was incredible, the 1977 team preceded them. Think about what was happening in NYC at the time. There was the Blackout, Son of Sam, a city trying to emerge from bankruptcy, the other NYC team just traded away their best player ever. Into this disaster stepped the 1977 Yankees who brought hope to the city. We saw Munson get a WS ring. Ron Guidry emerges. King George show he will never rest by adding Dent and Jackson to a pennant winning team. My personal life as well was difficult and this team gave me something to distract me.
