On a Friday night in June, 1995 a 14 year old girl went to Yankee Stadium with her mother’s best friend to take in a game. The crowd was sparse, the weather sucked, they were playing the Angels (which was as much of an automatic loss then as it is now) and some pitcher with too many ts in his name was pitching.
They left early because seriously fuck Chick Finley, but it was clear there was something lovable about this young pitcher and he was soon loved by every not dumb Yankees fan. He left for parts unknown after the 2003 season but returned to much cheer from women and their angry boyfriends/husbands who played along before the 2007 season.
