Fall is for Yankees

Fall in Connecticut

The 2009 New York Yankees are heading to the world series, again. I’m no sports fan. But I think I know why the Yankees always seem to prevail in the month of October.

Because Fall is For Yankees! In weather and in baseball, things seem to go in the favor of New Englanders this time of year. Even sunny California and its Angels can’t touch us.

For most months of the year New England is either too cold or too muggy. But for this short stretch of the calendar, we Yankees celebrate the most glorious season there is. See photo above taken this week on a morning walk to our local river beach on the mighty Housatonic.
