I'm watching the announcment of the starting lineups on YES and they're playing the Star Wars Victory Theme while announcing the Yankees.

You know...the theme that played at the end of Star Wars I when Luke, Hans and Chewbacca recieve their medals from Leha ?

it's giving me goosebumps!

GO YANKS!

Screw the O's JOE! :P

Anyone know if its blacked-out on ESPN2 in New York? It seems like it, and I'm not really in the mood at watch YES, even if Paul Oneil is on it.

Damn blackout restrictions. Its opening fricking day....

Yes, due to this game is not part of the regular ESPN package. That means the game is blackout in the local teams markets. Thus in NY and Boston it's a local telecast.

The Red Sox are supposed to be the heros... like Luke and Co. in Star Wars' films. ;)

It's because the Yankees are dubbed "The Evil Empire". :D

That's not revenge. It's just game 1 of 162.

Revenge would be beating sweeping the season series 19-0. Or defeating the Sox in the ALCS. After trailing 3 games to 0.

This is just a game. Which doesn't change the fact,

THE RED SOX ARE DEFENDING WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!!!!

I agree that it's not revenge - but you could not have scripted a better first game for the Yanks.

yes matsui saved the day when he robbed bill muller of a 2 run home run. wouldnt have made a difference anyway cause the yanks drew first blood and it would have been 9-4. yanks 1, sox 0, a long way to go red sox nation! :D

1. It was Kevin Millar, not Bill Mueller, whose home run was robbed by Matsui.

2. The Red Sox drew first blood, leading 1-0, then the Yankees came back to tie it in the bottom of the second. Had the home run not been robbed, the Sox would have been up 2-0 with no outs in the second, that's a different story than a 2-out single which brings in a run.

3. It's game 1 of 161. Flip the results for the next games, and start panicking, because both teams will be .500. The season is just as long for the Yankees as it is Red Sox Nation. Eighteen more games between the two teams, plus 143 games against everyone else.

and dont forget when we meet up again in the alcs and get our revenge!

yankee nation 1, red sox nation 0 17 and/or more to go.

i'll even go as far to say that a yankee will win the mvp or cy young award.
