So today, at 6:20 AM, the train arrived, at stop #3 into it's 2 hour journey to the Emerald City (aka NYC). As the train pulled up to the platform, we working saps noticed that it appeared to be unusually crowded so early on. And when the doors opened and we shuffled aboard, we noticed why the train was crowded- it was full of Yankees "fans", resplendent in their brand new Yankees hats, brand new Yankees jackets, and brand new Yankees jerseys, on their way to a parade to celebrate the Yankees World Series win #8,342 (or something).
Of course REAL fans like to point out that they've had their Yankees paraphernalia for years, or at last certainly from much earlier in the season than the END.
