New York Yankees Win World Series and Break the Curse of Hillary Clinton

Last night, the New York Yankees made history by defeating the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 6 of the World Series to capture their record 27th World Championship.  It is the Yankees’ first championship in nine years.  The significance of the Yankees’ victory cannot be overstated.  With their 27th championship, the Yankees have reaffirmed their place as the most dominant franchise in professional sports.  More importantly, the Yankees have destroyed the curse of Hillary Clinton.

On October 26, 2000, the New York Yankees were on top of the world.  They had just defeated a cute little team from the outer boroughs, the New York Mets, in Game 5 of the World Series to win what was then a record 26th World Championship.  It was the Yankees’ third championship in a row and their fourth in five years.  The Yankees were unstoppable.   Twelve days later, it would all fall apart.

On November 7, 2000, the voters of New York committed an act of barely speakable evil when they elected former First Lady Hillary Clinton as one of their United States Senators.  The voters’ decision was curious because Mrs. Clinton was not a New Yorker at all, but rather an Illinois native by way of Arkansas.  A communist witch and lifelong Cubs fan, Clinton had toured the state throughout her campaign pretending to be a moderate and a Yankees fan.  At the time, it was hard to believe that anyone could fall for Clinton’s brand of dark magic.  After all, her liberalism and loyalty to the Cubs were no secret.  But the voters who elected her were New Yorkers; they couldn’t help themselves.  The witch won, but not without a price to those who love the Yankees.  Although winning world championships was easy for the Yankees before Hillary became the Senator from New York, the most storied franchise in sports would never win another while Hillary served in the Senate.  That’s because she cursed the Yankees.

The Yankees reached the World Series in 2001.  With the city’s psyche still reeling after the September 11 terrorist attack man-made disaster, the Yankees delighted their fans with multiple dramatic, come-from-behind victories.  However, it wasn’t to be.  When the World Series was over, the Yankees had nothing to show for their dramatic effort except a loss.  It was like they were the Red Sox. Which happened to be the Yankees defeated in the 2003 American League Championship Series when Aaron Boone hit that memorable home run into the left field stands to start the bottom of the eleventh in Game 7.  Once again, the Yankees fell short in the World Series, this time to the Florida Marlins.  By this time, it was clear that Hillary’s curse was quite powerful.   But the disappointment of 2003 would pale in comparison to what was to come.

The 2004 regular season ended as most do, with the Yankees defeating the Red Sox to win the AL East.  The first round of the playoffs went as expected, with the Yankees defeating the Minnesota Twins in the ALDS.  As did Game One of the ALCS against the Red Sox.  As did Game Two of he ALCS against he Red Sox.  As did Game 3 of the ALCS against the Red Sox.  All was going as expected, but Hillary Clinton’s dark magic is powerful.  After taking a 3-0 lead against the Red Sox, the Yankees lost four straight to their rivals.  It was unthinkable.  The once-powerful Yankees lost . . . TO THE RED SOX . . . IN THE PLAYOFFS.  Remarkably, the Red Sox went on to win the World Series for the first time since the Woodrow Wilson administration.  The Red Sox would win another title in 2007.

Before Hillary’s term as Senator, the Yankees were the most dominant team in all of baseball.  Once the witch was seated, the Yankees never won another title while the most cursed franchise in sports won two.  Earlier this year, Hillary resigned as Senator from New York.  Now that the witch left New York, the Yankees are World Champions.  Baseball is back to normal.  The curse is broken!

Dee, You have to admit, though, that the timing involved in the “Curse of the Carpetbagger” is rather amusing…
