Update: Baseball Still Sucks, But...

Having just heard about this, I feel obligated to mention that last night the New York Yankees wore Virginia Tech logos on their caps, invited Virginia Tech President Charles Steger to come throw out the ceremonial first pitch, gave the school a one million dollar donation, and agreed to play an exhibition game against the Virginia Tech baseball team at or near the school in 2008.

Now, admittedly, that million dollars was about the same amount as Roger Clemens was paid to pitch for Trenton last night, but it still is an awfully generous gesture at a time when the tragedy has begun to fade from the public consciousness. So, major class points for the Yankee organization and major Jeremy points for supporting my Hokies... but I still prefer soccer.
