Game 41: This definitely calls for the Drama Llama.

Well, you knew it was time for him to make a re-appearance.  I think a 15 inning victory counts for dramatic, although it shouldn’t have needed that many innings just to beat the damn Orioles.  More on that later, though. How about that Bartolo Colon?  Good grief.  8 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, … Continue reading

Game 18: Guess what time it is again?

Isn’t he just the cutest?  He always makes an appearance when the Yankees snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and come from behind late in the game, or win in extras — like yesterday.  Apologies for the late… Continue reading

Game 11: You know what time it is.

The Drama Llama!  For those of you who are new to Yankees Chick this season, the Drama Llama only makes his appearance when the Yankees win a game in spectacular, come-from-behind fashion, much like last night.  Those of you… Continue reading

ALCS Game 1: Down but NEVER out.

LOL.  Just LOL.  By show of hands, how many people penciled this game in as a loss when the Yanks were down 5-0 early?  I have to admit I was terrified that with CC not having the strongest of… Continue reading

Game 156: Oh thank God.

I was beginning to think seeing a Yankees victory was going to be as rare as a double rainbow or Lindsay Lohan staying sober for more than 48 hours.  Good to see that the Yankees at least know how… Continue reading

Game 145: It’s about freakin’ time.

Hallelujah!  We finally won a game!  Our long, national nightmare is finally over!  Well, sort of.  We did everything we could to lose the game, but finally decided to just say screw it and win anyway.  Which was damn… Continue reading

Game 140: Cue the dramatic finale!

We haven’t had a good old-fashioned walk-off in a long time, so this was cool to see.  We also badly needed a win to stave off a sweep and 4-game losing streak.  So this win today was good for… Continue reading

Game 89: This one’s for you, George.

Was there any other way for this game to end?  This team thrives on dramatics and considering the emotional circumstances of the game, winning it in a walk-off seemed like the only possible result.  Before the game, Mo laid… Continue reading

Game 81: How’s *that* for some fireworks?

Seeing as today is also George Steinbrenner’s birthday, I’m sure the Yankees wanted to give him an extra-special present by giving him one of their patented dramatic walk-offs.  Interestingly enough, both of the walk-offs the Yankees have this season… Continue reading

Game 75: Best win of the season?

Whoa.  I was not expecting us to win this game!  I had to get up early this morning, so I went to bed rather early last night and when I did, the score was 6-2 Dodgers.  I had pretty… Continue reading
