Hi I'm Samson from upstate NY. I check in here from time to time but like the other forums, I don't post to often. I do enjoy reading other post though.

I'll be 55 in a couple of weeks and have been a Yankee follower since 1960. Raised in central Pa. I remember listening to the am radio broadcast of yankee games. I will never forget the drive for 61 in 61 by Mantle and Maris and am really looking forward to the movie.

I work in the Telephone industry as a installer/repairman and my hobbies are wildlife photography and "The Yankees" and "The Steelers". I know, that's kind mixed up, but that's me. Deal with it.

I don't condone any of the nitpicking or arguements that all to frequently happen on these forums. Being from the "old" school, I merely "change the the channel".

Anyway---that's me.

Why thank you Ladies for the kind words. Just for that maybe I will stick my 2 cents in more often.

Great game today except for pitching to Manny. Should have given him a free pass and pitched to the next guy. Oh well, we'll just have to win the next 18.
