A New Yankees Blog!

I am a recent Quinnipiac University journalism graduate and have been a Yankee fanatic my entire life. Since this is my first post, I want to tell you what to expect from me in this blog. I will present you with the latest information on the Yankees as well as other important baseball news with my analysis.

Now that you know what to expect from me, here is a little background info about yours truly:

My earliest Yankee memory was Charlie Hayes catching the final out of the 1996 World Series. Not a bad first memory eh? I was just six years old with so much to learn...

I was born and raised in Hanover, NH (95% Red Sox fans). Luckily, my parents grew up in New Jersey and brought me up as a Yankee fan. I've had to endure the hatred of the Yankees in Hanover my whole life, as well as only having access to the Red Sox on TV.

As much as I hate putting up with these Sox fans, I've unknowingly gained a profound knowledge of both the Yanks and the Sox. Living in Red Sox Nation has given me a unique perspective -certifying my loyalty to the Yankees- and has led me to the creation of this blog.

Thank you for reading,

-Lenny Neslin

P.S. - if anyone has ideas for improving this blog or wants to discuss something that I have not mentioned, feel free to give me a shout here!

Greetings Yankee fans.

I don't understand your blog title.

It's my nickname for the Yankees. When I was a kid I learned that the Yankees were also called the bombers, so I decided to combine them and call them the Yonka-Bombas.

No more confusion!

Looking forward to see your takes as the season unfolds.
My earliest memory was Mickey Mantle coming back from an injury and hitting a pinch Hit Home run in 1962 that I think won the game. I was just 6 1/2 at the time.

Lenny, great blog. I was inspired to sing "America the Beautiful" this morning and thought every Yankee fan and Yankee should do so today to keep a losing streak like the recent one from ever happening again. Do your best! Mrs.
