What next, a documentary on 1930's barnstorming, produced by Snow?

Ah, Knucks, that's a diss. Personally, I think Serch was a better MC, but Pete Nice was no chump.

Alex, a few months ago I emailed you and related a story about how I heard MC Serch on a local Philly radio show, talking about his new show on MTV. I gotta tell you, at my ripe old age of 34, some of the only reminders I get about my late 80's/early 90's B-Boy days is reading your random hip hop references and stories. But this one just took the proverbial cake. Thanks so much for the link...and thank you Jack Curry.

Bronx Banter is such a welcome release for me. On any given day, I can read about my beloved Yanks but also catch seemingly disparate references such as 3rd Bass, They Might Be Giants, Lord of the Rings, Rodney Dangerfield flicks, etc.

Ah yeah. 3rd Bass. Remember Pete Nice's hiphop dj gig on Columbia's radio station in the mid 80s? Must listening for hip hop fans. In Bay Ridge as a high school kid, I could was just about able to tune in.

When I picked up the Times this morning I really thought for a second that Alex wrote that article. I'm always digging the Hip Hop references. Nice to have an informed voice out there especially on a baseball blog.

Actually, this article put more of a skip in my step today than anything written about the Yankees outside of the Banter and LoHud...since, naturally, everyone was hammering A-Rod and Giambi. Great to see Nice doing OK for himself.

Santana got smacked around by the Sox (I hope the Yankees scouts are watching) and Mauer now leads the batting race by 6. It'll be tough for either Captain or Cano. Whatever, Jeter's VORP is 15 points higher.

Hey guys, finally got around to posting everything:
It's broken up into 8 segments, but it's everything (minus a few minutes of Bob Lorenz here & there) that YES had after the game...

Here's my YouTube page with everything:

Just click the (View All Videos) link in the 'Videos' box near the top right-hand corner of the page. You'll get a list of 9 videos, 8 of which are the Yankees. They're not quite in order, so pay attention to the numbers before the title of each clip. It goes in order of 01, 02, 03, etc.

I just hope Pete Nash's new films don't include images of white poodle boy rapper Kevin Federline (Mr. Britney Spears) rockin' his Yanks hat, yo.

Great job on the celebration clips, Pistol Pete.

10 Pistolpete, you are the hero of my Friday morning. Thanks so much!

I realized something about the celebration. Cynics can smirk all they want about how scripted they think the celebration looks, but I see differently, it looks like they are genuinely happy. While winning a division series and championship series is great, I think clinching the division is second only to the World Series win for these guys. It's cathartic, releasing the stress of an entire season, a season where many key players lost serious time to injury, a season where lots of people were hoping that this was the year the Yanks fell short. They didn't fall short, and it was thanks to a few players who have never been to the playoffs before. And those players are the ones who are living it up in those clips. I don't find anything "rehearsed" or "old" about it, especially watching Melky Cabrerra and Robby Cano jump around.

Speaking of which, where's that pic, Chyll Will? I need a new desktop!

No commercials?! Pistolpete, you rule!

Anyone else find this funny? Jason Giambi: "I'd do anything it takes to win a World Series."

10 Great 9/11 video Pistolpete. I still remember that horrible day like it was yesterday. It resulted in a career change and being in Washington 5 days a week. Thanks for reminding me what we are fighting for.
