God forbid the yanks actually lose...
the key word being "potential"
potentially, at the beginning of the season, the expos could have won the world series, and still had 3 thousand fans in the stadium per game...
potential means nothing
in baseball the only thing that matters is the final outcome--and the yanks lost
so all that "potential" money they "could have" made is meaningless
yes, the timing woulda been a great time to "let" the yanks win the world series, but wouldnt that just taint one of the things that makes this country great??
no, they lost, fair and square, so i shed no tears for the poor poor yankees...
