Yankees, Travelers, and Langhorne Win

Great Yankees win, in the face of blind umping, and biased Fox sportscasting.

But the Yankees were great. Girardi has really settled into his managing. A-Rod is playing like a full-fledged superstar. Teixeira got back his magical swing, Cano is in the game, and Mariano is invincible.

Even the commercials were great. Especially the Travelers Insurance spot with Langhorne Slim - which didn't make it to Game Six tonight. But it's always satisfying to see your team win and discover a new singer at the same time. Langhorne reminds me of John Sebastian and the Lovin' Spoonful - I expect he'll soon be a superstar himself.

On the World Series. I'm picking the Yankees and Langhorne.

Here's a video of that commercial...
