Yanks Fans Celebrate!

November 4, 2009 was a BIG day for New York, Yankees fans and baseball lovers all over the world. Check out the pictures below as New Yorkers celebrated outside Yankee Stadium in the Bronx after the New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-3 in Game Six of the 2009 MLB World Series to win their 27th championship!

No. 27. And counting. 27 FOR 86. That's 27 out of 105 Series and the Yanks didn't win their first until 1923, so 27 titles out of the previous 86 seasons. Just to put it in perspective for you, the Montreal Canadiens are the most successful NHL franchise, winning 24 Stanley Cups. The Boston Celtics best in the NBA, have won 17 titles, including nine straight. The New York Giants have 17 NFL titles. This is BIG WIN NUMBER 27 for the Yanks, including first-round draft pick Derek Jeter, 22nd rounder Andy Pettitte, 24th round-pick Jorge Posada and free-agent amateur sign Mariano Rivera. In fact, for Jeter, Pettitte, Posada and Rivera it's their fifth Series rings. One for the thumb.

And though the 2009 season began with a cloud over Alex Rodriguez, who made news in the supermarket tabloids after a positive confidential steroid test broke, A-Rod cried when hugging his teammates last night. The Yanks won with Jerry Hairston, Brett Gardner and Nick Swisher in the outfield since Melky Cabrera was injured in Philadelphia and Johnny Damon injured a calf running the bases and was lifted in the top of the fourth. Jeter, the Yankee captain and lead-off man, had 11 hits.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
