From the Yankees seder on Monday evening:
The Four Questions:
1) Why is this night different from most other nights? Because we are not playing a baseball game this evening.
2) Why do we let Red Sox Nation eat bitter herbs? To remind them of the bitterness of this rivalry and how misery will always find them.
3) Why is the number 56 carved into the brisket? To commemorate Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak–a record that will never be broken.
4) Why is Mariano Rivera allowed to recline on this night? He’s the greatest closer of all time–he can do whatever he wants.
It gets late early out there.
