New York City, underneath a peculiar cloud formation.  July 26, 2008

Amtrak Conductor: [over loudspeaker] Attention Amtrak Passengers, next stop is Penn Station, New York City.  For those passengers from Boston, please look out the right side of the train.  That’s the Bronx… home of the 26-time World Series Champion New York Yankees.

Boston Passengers: Boo!

Amtrak Conductor: [5 minutes later] Now arriving in Penn Station, New York City.  New York City, next stop.   …  Home of the 2008 Superbowl champs, the New York Giants.

Boston Passengers: Boo!

Boston Man: [growling] Yeah, why doncha tell us about yah basketball team, yah punk.

I think I’m going to stop watching games until the playoffs. Too much acid reflux.
