Stick It Out

The 5 train was running on the 7th Avenue line early this morning. It got Jon from the Bronx to his job on the Westside, but it didn’t feel quite right.

“I’m just more comfortable on the 2 train,” he explained. “The 2 train is Derek Jeter. The 5 train is Joe DiMaggio. I’ve got nothing against DiMaggio, but I’m not old enough to have seen him play. I’ll stick with Jeter and the 2.”

Jon is also sticking with his baseball team.

“I have heard all the grumbling about the Yankees,” he said. “I’ve even done some grumbling myself, but I know the guys are playing hard and that’s all I expect.

“Things always even up,” Jon continued. “The breaks will come and the hits will fall if you stick it out with the team.”

Jon smiled and shrugged.

“People in the Bronx know all about having to stick it out.”

I have a feeling that the hits will start coming tonight. Santana is tough, but we need to find a way to win.

If they keep on fighting everything will be fine.
