Bitter-Sweet Goodbyes

In recognition of today’s last-ever game at Yankee’s stadium, a brief reminder of the greatness that played there.

Babe Ruth, Home-Run champ for 34 years. Sole posessor of the only sports record that counts. Show me someone else that could hit 60 home runs in that short of a season, fueled only on beer and hot-dogs. McGuire and Bonds can kiss my ass. I’ll be plenty happy when A-Rod takes back the All-Time Home-Run Record in a few years.

Lou Gehrig, hit 50 homers the same year the Babe hit 60. His record for most base-hits in Yankee Stadium was only broken just last week by Derek Jeter. Gehrig was the first athelete to have his jersey retired when he bowwed out less than two years before his death to ALS.
