Yankees 8. Mets 2

A good end to a vanity interleague series.

When I first presented the reality of a forever Yankees-Mets series to Desert Rose, she responded as any Sun Devil would:

"Well, it doesn't count in the standings, does it?"

Bless her heart, Desert Rose was responding as any college football fan would. Conference games, non-conference, all differentiated as we work toward the Rose Bowl.

(Understand--Desert Rose had her own morality as regards sporting events. Eighteen years before Pete Rose was thrown out of baseball, my mother saw him basically end Ray Fosse's career with a collison at home plate during the 1971 All-Star Game. My mother's take: "That was wrong. That game didn't count in the standings." Her verdict, Pete Rose: Asshole. Turned out to be so true.)
