Bleacher Creature Feature

Rants on the New York Yankees
by Keith R.A. DeCandido

The New York Yankees have been my favorite baseball team since I first started following the sport in 1976. I have written the occasional rambling thingie about the Yankees over the past few years, and I formalized it in 2002. Since my girlfriend Terri and I have season tickets to see over a dozen Yankee home games from the bleacher seats, we are now among those legends of urban myth, The Bleacher Creatures, so I've decided that my ramblings are called the Bleacher Creature Feature.
