It wasn't looking good through 7, but a little 8th inning offensive magic and here we are, with the New York Yankees officially in the 2011 postseason. It's just a small part on the journey to title 28, but it's still an important milestone. You can't win it if you aren't in it, and the Bombers are in. So pop a little champagne at home, at work, in the car, wherever you are, and toast to the Yankees making the playoffs. And then settle in for the nightcap tonight and root for the Sawx to keep losing.
And somebody please HIT THE FUCKING MUSIC!!!!!!!!
Second shot does the trick for Yankees' Hicks
