Hip, hip, Jorge

My good friend Craig bought us all Yankees tickets last December. It was a crazy coincidence that our game fell on the day he would leave his company to come work with me.

What a game. Niki’s favorite Yankee Jorge Posada did everything right. He settled down relief pitcher Aaron Small, survived a violent collision with Mark Teixeira at the plate and hit a walk-off two-run home run in the ninth inning to bring the Yankees back from 9-0 to an eventual 14-13 win. They matched the biggest comeback in Yankee history and Joe Torre said it made his top ten Yankees games list.

What a fantastic, memorable night.
