    Nope. First decade in 100 years the Yankees don't make it to the World Series

    Still one more year in the decade.

    Yes. That is one way to look at it. There is no year 0.


    So by that logic, the new roaring twenties doesn't start until Jan 1, 2021 and end until Dec 31, 2030. Just like the 20th Century is the 1900's....

    Decades go as follows 2000-2009; 2010-2019;2020-2029 and so on


    The last year of the twentieth century was 1999 NOT 2000

    Nope. Contrary to popular belief.

    There is no year zero.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_zero

    A century is 100 years.
    Count.

    The first year in the first century is 1 AD.
    The last year in the first century is 100 AD.
    The first year in the second century is 101 AD.
    The last year in the second ventury is 200 AD.
    Repeat.
    The first year in the 20th Century is 1901 AD.
    The last year in the 20th Century is 2000 AD.
    The 21st Century began on January 1, 2001 AD.


    A similar exercise can be done with decades.
    I get where you are coming from, but then decades, as defined by you, do not share boundaries with centuries. The first decade would have to have been 9 years.

    The only reason I donít like considering a decade ends in a zeroó the Red Sox have 4 WS titles in this century to the Yankees 1 (2000 is in the 1990ís).
    4-1. Hard to fathom.

    Re: Yankee Legacy Club Open House/Seat Relocation Event

    I think it’s all in the wording or how you view it.

    The Yankees have not been to the World Series in the 20-teens, if you want to label that chunk of time as 2010-2019. That is a technically a decade because it’s a ten year period but it’s not the official decade, which would be 2011-2020. As mentioned above there was no year 0 so each decade begins with 1.

    Edit: So the confusion seems to be that since they haven’t been to the WS in the 20-teens and this is the last 20-teen year, then this is the first decade they’ve missed. But that’s inaccurate because they have 1 more shot at this decade.

    So someone born on Jan 1 2000 is already one? No he won't he one until Jan 1 2001. And when the decade ends on Dec 31 2009 he will have lived 10 years.


    This has been an on going debate for ever.

    The year 1 BCE was followed by the year 1 AD. A decade is ten years. So the first AD decade was 1-10.

    A person's age has nothing to do with what a decade is called.
    A decade is 10 years. Ten decades make up a century. Ten centuries make up a millennium.

    There was no year zero.

    Therefore, the first decade of the first century of the first millennium ran from Jan 1, 1 AD, through Dec 31, 10 AD. The second decade of the first century of the first millennium began on Jan 1, 11 AD, and ended on Dec 31, 20 AD. Now continue...

    Here's another one for you.


    You decide, this (coming) year, to throw a kick-a55 barbecue on the 4th of July - July 4, 2020.
    It was so awesome. (HOW AWESOME WAS IT!!!) It was so awesome that you decide to have one the following year, and the year after that, and the year after that.
    In the year 2030, what barbecue is it?


    If you subtract 2020 from 2030, you'd think it's the 10th, but it isn't.



    It's the 11th annual kick-a55 barbecue, not the tenth. It could be considered the 10th anniversary of the first, but not the tenth overall...

    Zero is a number just like every other number Give it some respect.

    We are not discussing algebra. None of us were alive when the calendar flipped from BC to AD. It was those alive who decided there would be no year zero. The first year is 1 AD. The tenth year is 10 AD. Making the first decade 1-10 AD. There is no zeroth year.

    Ok back to the topic of the open house/seat relocation... does anyone actually see tickets for it in their account or it mentioned anywhere? Just making sure it’s not only me that doesn’t.

    You need to re read your history books. No one alive at that time knew it was year 0 or 1.


    Counting years according to our modern system was suggested by the monk Dionysius Exiguus in the 6th century and more commonly adopted in the 9th century.

    I was planning to go and really looking forward to it, but my job is sending me out-of-town and I cannot refuse.

    Is anyone on this board willing to serve as my proxy? I will pay $100 for the privilege. LMK. Thanks!
