The Empire Strikes Back
I had been rooting for the Phillies, but the Yankees got the job done. Oddly enough, I'm kinda happy for guys like Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, and CC Sabathia to win their first World Series. It was even nice to see guys like Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, and Mariano Rivera savor this championship for what might be the last time. And yes, perhaps the best storyline for me was Hideki Matsui, aka "Godzilla," taking home the MVP trophy.
The only bad news is that I think this means there won't be any baseball for awhile.
