Offseason Space Filler Post: Hey, Remember When... ?

Hey, remember when Charlie Hayes caught the pop up to win the '96 World Series?  That was sweet.

Hey, remember when the Yanks and Orioles had that huge brawl in '98 after Benitez hit Tino with that fastball and Graeme Lloyd and Straw were completely losing their shit trying to go after Benitez?  That was fucking awesome.

Hey, remember when Tino yanked that 2-run homer off Byung-Hyun Kim in the 9th inning of Game 4 in the 2001 World Series?  That was incredible.

Hey, remember Jeter's homer the next inning?  Even more incredible.

Hey, remember the look on Kim's face when he gave up the game-tying homer to Brosius the next night?  That was funny.

Hey, remember some of the bombs Soriano used to hit back when he was a Yankee and didn't suck?  They were amazing.

Hey, remember The Flip?  That was nuts.

Hey, remember when Jeter dove into the stands?  That was insane!

Hey, remember when Boone smashed that home run off of Wakefield?  That was the shit.

Hey, remember A-Rod's 2-run homer off Joe Nathan in the 9th inning of Game 2?  That was clutch.

Hey, remember when Damon stole 2nd in the '09 World Series?  That was smart.

Hey, remember the goosebumps you get every time you're at The Stadium and the opening chords to "Enter Sandman" kick in?  Those are great.

Hey, remember all the great memories you have from watching the Yankees over the years.  Those are unforgettable.  And they're something that not a lot of other baseball fans have.

Hey, remember when Mike Mussina relieved dismal Roger Clemens in the 4th inning of ALCS game 7 vs. Boston in 2003 with men on first and third with no out and pitched three scoreless innings to keep the Yankees in the game? That was the work of a Hall of Famer.

Ahh yes! The Moose. And another classic moment. I'm curious to see how he does in his first year of HOF eligibility.

And not a bad Clemens choice either, since for once his fake injury routine didn't completely destroy the Yankees and it didn't involve Suzyn screaming at the top of her lungs.
