2013- Key Events

I have to admit that I get the crankies When somebody mentions the damn New York Yankees I just do not like them, its one of my gripes They strut around wearing their fancy pinstripes There is one exception, someone I dont blame A prince of a fellow, Riveras his name Hes top notch, a class act, the finest youll meet He helps sweet old ladies while crossing the street Its hard not to like him although hes a foe Hes a wonderful guy, hes Mariano In closing out ball games, well, its understood Hes the best of all time, that guy is good Hes saved games forever, to tell you the truth I think that he played with both Gehrig and Ruth Were hed not a Yankee, hed rate an A plus Good luck, Mariano. But not against us
