Why I Stopped

I am sure you wondering why we halted our glorious writing during the middle of the season and this post will answer all of your questions. No, we did not go on a spiritual journey with Dave Chappelle to Africa. Our last post of the season was on 8/7. The Yankees record during our blogging stretch was 68 wins and 42 losses. Now that is not too bad. After we stopped the Yankees went 46-21. Don't forget about the World Series Championship.

Now did I single handedly win the World Series for the Yankees? Some might say. I would give some credit to the boys but man I helped out. Why I wasn't mentioned in any of the speeches? Why won't the Yankees answer my letters requesting a ring for my services. I don't really know. The US Postal Service sucks is most likely the answer.

I am currently working to become a better photo-shopper (just in time for Black Friday). I do the same thing that Rocky does in his training montage. I even hired an old guy to yell at me while I crop. You can except some good stuff coming.

Don't fret though; The Chuck Knoblog is back in full force.

Parade Madness

I was at the Parade and when standing out in the cold for a few hours people find a ways to occupy themselves. Near me people were throwing toilet paper back and forth, which was fun. Some other people were doing this:













Here is the quote from Deadspin:
I attended the Yankee parade this Friday...and a group of kids were picking random people to be thrown in the air just for the hell of it. This was hours before the parade started. It was quite entertaining...and this girl was being thrown around like a beach volleyball.
Deadspin has been bitching and moaning about the Yankees forever but that is a cool picture.

Yankees Watching LEBRON!!!!

Here are the boys at the Knicks game. Notice the different styles of dress (A-Rod, Melky, Tex). CC and Melky matched their shoes with their shirt. That is very impressive for Melky; he strikes me as a guy who doesn't know what day it is.

Yankees on Letterman Tonight

Already miss seeing your beloved Yankees on T.V.? Well, tonight at 11:35 eastern 3 of the core 4 (Jeter, Po and Pettitte) can be seen on the David Letterman show tonight.















You don't even wanna know how many of the staff members have had sex with Jeter.

2009 New York Yankees Parade Info



























Friday's ticker-tape parade will begin on Broadway at Battery Place (map above). They will make their way down the Canyon of Heroes to City Hall where the Mayor will present everyone (even Bruney) Keys to the City.

  • The Parade will start at 11 AM Friday Morning (11/6/09)
  • There are projected to be 3 million people attending the parade (including Nate and I)
  • You need tickets to go to the City Hall ceremony but they will showing it on a giant TV near City Hall plaza.
Here is the quote from Bloomberg:
Congratulations to the Yankees for bringing the world championship back home to New York City, where it belongs," said Bloomberg. "The Yankees have thrilled the city all year long with their come-from-behind victories and never-say-die attitude, and they did it again in the World Series. What's sweeter than a World Series won at home? The only thing that comes close is a ticker-tape parade up the Canyon of Heroes, and that's exactly what New Yorkers will get on Friday. The Phillies were a tough team to beat, but I must admit I look forward to seeing Mayor (Michael) Nutter in pinstripes as he joins me and some of our public school students as we paint the Albert Einstein School in the Bronx."

I will update this post with more info as it comes.

#27

It has been a while but our Yankees have done it again. #27 is ours. It has been an incredible year and defeating the defending champs in a World Series showdown tops it off. The new stadium gets a World Series in it's first year; that place is already growing on me. We haven't posted in a while but I will explain that later. Right enjoy the win, fans. There will be a lot more to come from the Knoblog. I will be attending the Parade and will be posting constantly from now on. This is the first World Series since I have been running the Knoblog and there will be many more to come. This one is special. As Jeter said "This is back where it belongs".
