  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Happy 20th Anniversary, NYYFANS!

    I don't know the exact date but this site was born in early 2000, albeit originally as Bronx-bombers.com. The site survived early issues with money and legal threats over the name, but we persevered and here we are 20 years later still going strong with over 500 active members, even in the offseason, and even during this no-season. With that amount of time comes some sadness...we've had some great members pass away, and a lot of others just disappear. The core keeps going though, so here's...

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: The Ask anything about computers thread

    I have seen we have various threads about computer help, what to buy? various terms, differences between MAC and PC, I made this thread for anyone that wants some of us with computer experience to answer some of those who need some advice or help trouble shooting.. Jason

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: The First Name Thread

    There are a bunch of people who frequent this Forum who's first name I know. There are countless others that I have no idea what their first name is. Couple that with the hundreds upon hundreds of new people who have registered that would have no idea who people are... I thought it would be a good idea for a Thread where people (who wish to divulge this information) give their first name. This is not to be a joke Thread, please be serious and only respond if you wish to give your name. ...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: ATTENTION EVERYONE – New Community Standards

    Big news - our revised Community Standards are finally online. Please access them on the footer of the page, towards the right-hand edge..... The main point of differentiation between NYYFans and most other sports forums is the sense of community that has been fostered here, since our site was founded many years ago. In order to maintain this atmosphere, we must hold posters to certain basic expectations when participating here..... To this end, we will be conducting a relaunch of our...

  1. Non-Presidential News Stories That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread Thread

    I closed the Election 2016 thread, because it’s clearly old news. In its place, I opened a thread to discuss the President, and I’m opening this one to discuss Current Events that don’t necessarily center around the President. Often, the Election thread went off on tangents. I’m thinking of this as a stand-alone thread to be a home for those tangent discussions. When the discussion gets around to politics, the same ground rules will apply as I stated in the President Trump thread: ...

  2. Covid-19

    Several folks have suggested we open a new thread to discuss Coronavirus, as it's starting to clutter up the Trump, non-Trump, and healthcare threads. Let's try to hold this thread to actual virus, and news associated with it. Feel free to discuss the administration's response to it (or lack thereof) in the Trump thread. Thanks to ojo, there's a solid dashboard here: https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 Wash your hands. Don't touch...

  3. President Joe Biden

    I allowed a lot of leeway in the thread dedicated to the prior President, because...well, because there were often no ways to describe his behavior except by violating these simple rules. New administration. New President. Let's start things off with a return to some decorum. GROUND RULES 1. Keep it courteous and respectful. Disagree all you want, but watch the tone. 2. No personal attacks. 3. Avoid speculation on what another poster “really means.” It’s tedious. 4. Don’t...

  5. What Are You Reading In 2021

    The Jersey Brothers by Sally Mott Freeman. Any fan of WWII non-fiction/memoir will love this book. Besides being a story of three brothers in the USN, gives a great look into the politics of the Pacific theater. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30753793-the-jersey-brothers

  9. Favorite baseball movies

    Time for a positive thread. This was done many years ago on this forum and thought with the season upcoming a good time to do it again. This time every year I do my annual viewing of the Ken Burns series and my collection of baseball movies (you name it I probably have it). What are your favorite baseball movies? And any you don't like? 1) Field of Dreams (one of my favs period) 2) Pride of the Yankees 3) The Natural 4) 42 5) Major League One I don't like much: The Babe. I know I...

  10. HelloNewman's Occasional Question #1

    Hello. I'm not as dogged and devoted as JDPNYY so probably won't do this every day. But would like to encourage conversation. So will post these questions "occasionally." Inaugural question: Name a TV show you liked a lot as a child or teen, but now say "What was I thinking? That show is awful."

    I think we are going to need this. I am in the 18-24" of snow zone by Tuesday morning. Should be a major challenge for my 57-year old tractor, not to mention the even-older me. Stay safe out there.

  14. President Donald Trump

    I closed down the Election 2016 thread, but have opened this one to discuss the POTUS. I must be a glutton for punishment. About 95% of the complaints I get via IM are from that one thread. A similar percentage of “reported posts” also come from that thread. However, it’s generated over 37,000 entries. Our community clearly sees value in a political discussion. So, we can let it continue. GROUND RULES Keep it courteous and respectful. Disagree all you want, but watch the...

  15. 2020 Presidential Election

    We have a separate thread for the Democratic Nomination, but since that's a done deal, it's likely time to open up a thread for the up-coming Presidential Election. As with the other political threads, we need to keep this civil. My informal poll shows Biden winning the NYYFans voting block in a landslide. Keep in mind that dissenting opinions are welcome. Do not belittle folks who intend to vote for a third party candidate. Do not berate or insult folks who express support for a...

  16. Happy New Year!

    May 2021 not be the cluster that 2020 was. Hopefully the new administration will get the vaccine rolled out so this BS can end and our people can stop dying. In the meantime, stay home as much as you can and mask up when you can't. Cheers. :gulp:

  17. The Real World/The Challenge Thread

    Now this might wind up being a thread for just me and Rhodey. But I think at this point this should deserves it's own thread that we can go back to every time a new season starts up. As per usual, previews of this season show that there will be lots of fighting/crying/hookups/drama. The format for the new season is that former exes have been paired up as teammates and will be forced to work together. As a CT fan I will be pulling for CT and Diem, but I would be surprised to see Abram...

  18. Healthcare

    We've spun off on a pretty significant tangent in the Trump thread. Let's move the discussion of the GOP health care plan here. I'll go first. ObamaCare is, in my opinion, an abject failure. It forced all Americans to purchase a commercial product, something our government has not previously done. The Supreme Court's decision to allow it was dubious, as the Court came up with its own language to interpret the word "fine" to really mean "tax" to keep the legislation within...

  19. JDPNYY's 2020 - You be the GM: #8 (Mega-Choices)

    The premise. I will give you a choice of at least 2 players from a bygone era. (The choices will be mainly Yankees, but not always) Your job is to pick one player to be placed on the Yankee roster for 2021. A few things... 1) Salary is not to be a factor (just assume the player you choose will fit into the budget). 2) Think about the current roster and choose which player fits best. For this exercise this is the last piece of the roster for the season. 3) You can assume the player will...
