“It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” – Yogi Berra
Looks like September will come to a somber end. The baseball world and America in general lost one of its true icons in Yogi Berra. The baseball legend passed away at the age of 90 this week, leaving nothing but praise. In slightly better, but not by much, news is another star quarterback hitting the sideline for extended time. Steelers Ben Roethlisberger quarterback sprained his PCL this past Sunday in St. Louis and will be out at least six weeks. Life just got a lot tougher for head coach Mike Tomlin and the Steelers’ playoff hopes take a huge hit.
Now that we got all the depressing news out of the way let’s focus on some good. Playoff baseball is returning to Toronto (first time since 1993), Chicago (first time since 2008) and Queens, NY (first time since 2006) and all three fan bases are hyped as is the MLB who will have broadcasts in all the major cities for the first time in a very long time.
