As a lifelong Yankees fan, their clutch performance, the last week of the season was beautiful to watch. The team is pretty unchanged from the last few years so im used to seeing Jeter, Cano, Swisher, and Sabathia celebrating in the champagne.
There is one new face though that really made me smile.
Ichiro is a certain Hall of Famer who has been trending down for a few years. Some thought he was done as a great player, but he came to New York and turned back into a difference maker. Ive always been an admirer of his ability but watching him spray the bubbly in that Yankees Champion shirt completed my turn into fanboy. I know its doubtful he will be back next year, so i just wanted to take a sec to enjoy this cool moment.
Thanks Ichiro, youre the man!
