Yankee fans are the ultimate troopers

The Yanks owe their fans a huge debt of gratitude for hanging in there these last two games against the Angels despite the harsh elements at Yankee Stadium. Last night I was lucky to be in a section of the stadium covered by the upper deck, relatively insulated from the cold, wind and rain that started to come down heavy in the latter innings. But the fans who stood out in the open and survived the elements deserve a reward. Would have been nice of the Yanks to offer something to these fans: free hot chocolate at least!

The sense of camaraderie among the fans at the stadium last night warmed my heart. I was sitting next to this family with their little boy (an adorable blue-eyed, smiling kid who easily won the hearts of all the female Yankee fans around him). By the time the game was over, it was like we were all family. I even got a huge hug from the mom when the Yanks finally won it. I think we all floated out of the stadium last night.
