I was cleaning out the attic today and came across this. I must have swiped it from Yankee stadium back in May 2014. Good size pencil for golf. 8)

You didn't swipe it ... They give them away when you buy a program. You're supposed to use it to keep score!

If you had, it would look something like this (mutatis mutandis):

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. ;D

I wonder if I'll come across the programme? Would a Yankees programme from May 17, 2014 be worth anything?

I hope not! I just discarded a bunch of my old program(me)s, including that one, in a fit of year-end housekeeping. Though, if I had remembered that was "our" game, I'd have hung on to it!  :D

I can't remember much about that game except that the Yankees hit a bunch of home runs, and won. I looked it up: Yankees beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 7-1. And if it hadn't been for the three of us ... attendance that day would have been only 47,350!

https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA201405170.shtml

The only two guys who played for the Yankees that day who are still with the team are an outfielder, Brett Gardner, and a relief pitcher, Dellin Betances. Several have retired (Jeter, Teixeira, Soriano, Roberts, and Ichiro is more or less retired), others were traded or left as free agents. On the other hand, one of the guys who played for the Pirates that day was with the Yankees for a couple of months last year: Andrew McCutchen. He'll be with the Phillies next year.

Aw, poor birdie. But that's nature ... red in tooth and claw. Er, and coil.

Christopher's post in the movies I've watched this week topic about renting dvds reminded me of this article a few weeks back.

Related: the New York Times ran a story about what is now the last extant Blockbuster store ... in Bend, Oregon.

That's interesting! And I do hope the last one does remain open for a long time. The locations for these stores seems random. I had an account at a Blockbuster when I was in college but I didn't go there often (they were always more expensive than other options).
