I know the Yanks have had it rough in the last few weeks, but damn.
2006-10-11 05:02:13 PM  
This is a joke, right?

If not, it's surely to be the fodder for some.
2006-10-11 05:02:15 PM  
The guy from that movie License to Drive?
2006-10-11 05:02:17 PM  
Probably a suicide attempt.
2006-10-11 05:02:18 PM  
2006-10-11 05:02:23 PM  
Ok, this is.. weirder.

So, elaborate suicide or bad flying?
2006-10-11 05:02:23 PM  
Why do the New York Yankees hate America?
2006-10-11 05:02:23 PM  
Several other news sources are reporting the same.
2006-10-11 05:02:24 PM  
So. many. jokes.

Must. practice. restraint.
2006-10-11 05:02:27 PM  
I have been watching this from my building. Makes me sick. 42ns street is where i am watching from.
2006-10-11 05:02:28 PM  
Crashed and burned twice in one week.
2006-10-11 05:02:39 PM  
2006-10-11 05:02:58 PM  
It looks like the admins can go ahead and change that headline to reflect the worst. I think this is official.
2006-10-11 05:03:06 PM  
At least the Yankees payroll is under $200 million now.
2006-10-11 05:03:06 PM  
Yankees continue to crash and burn on New York
2006-10-11 05:03:13 PM  
Watching CNN now, they're reporting that Cory Lidle's passport was found on the ground by the crash site, and that he was the only person on the plane (piloting).
2006-10-11 05:03:16 PM  
I'd rather fly a CS-20 with Cory Lidle than go hunting with Dick Cheney.
2006-10-11 05:03:20 PM  
He must have balked.

/Business-class please.
2006-10-11 05:03:28 PM least he can hit something with a plane.

/Ticket, please
2006-10-11 05:03:46 PM  
I thought it was a joke too when someone just told me.

2006-10-11 05:03:47 PM  
Hmm, not surprising. At least where I live, Blue Jays tend to have a nasty habit of flying into windows...
2006-10-11 05:03:48 PM  
at least he went out with a grand metaphor.
2006-10-11 05:04:04 PM  
Quite the curveball.
2006-10-11 05:04:20 PM  
Wow. I had him on my fantasy baseball team.

Good thing I just traded him...
2006-10-11 05:04:21 PM  
I am not a pilot but isn't it retarded to pilot a plane on your own, much less if you've only had your pilot license for seven months? SEVEN MONTHS?!

/My money's on "he was drunk"
2006-10-11 05:04:23 PM  
well, at least the bronx bombers are living up to their nickname again.

/so sorry
2006-10-11 05:04:23 PM  
High and inside.
2006-10-11 05:04:31 PM  
Geez, when I said I wanted the Yankees to DIAF I was just kidding.
2006-10-11 05:05:18 PM  
They need to start making buildings and airplanes out of passports.
2006-10-11 05:05:38 PM  
I heard Posada made an awesome stop and kept the plane from crashing into the next apartment.

/Attention NYC plaintiff's lawyers: yes, you can sue the Yankees. And even their fans are probably in the mood for some punitive damages right about now.
2006-10-11 05:05:48 PM  
Strike 3!
2006-10-11 05:05:55 PM  
2006-10-11 05:06:07 PM  
So, elaborate suicide or bad flying?


i thought it couldn't get any worse for the yankees this year. obviously, i was wrong.
2006-10-11 05:06:11 PM  
This is bad. I wonder how it will affect the Cardinals/Mets game tonight?
2006-10-11 05:06:11 PM  
Thurman Munson V2.0
2006-10-11 05:06:12 PM  
Leisure Suit Larry: Geez, when I said I wanted the Yankees to DIAF I was just kidding.

*golf clap*
2006-10-11 05:06:14 PM  
Leisure Suit Larry

2006-10-11 05:06:15 PM  
Strike 1!!

I'm guessing suicide after he found out the Yankmees are keeping Alex Rodriguez.
2006-10-11 05:06:16 PM  
stealing headlines from the mets again?
2006-10-11 05:06:18 PM  
Muslims play baseball?!?
2006-10-11 05:06:19 PM HERE!
2006-10-11 05:06:23 PM  
hm... too many things i could say... so mean... poor guy... =/
2006-10-11 05:06:24 PM  
ZekeMacNeil: Probably a suicide attempt success.
2006-10-11 05:06:34 PM  
love-m'-beer: High and inside.

You win.
2006-10-11 05:06:34 PM  
Damn maybe he found out the Steinbrener was going to fire him
2006-10-11 05:06:36 PM  
Bush is planning to attack the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in response.
2006-10-11 05:07:16 PM  
I heard of foxsports radio that he had a passenger, so I dont think it was a suicide attempt. inexperienced pilot to blame?
2006-10-11 05:07:21 PM  
Jeez I'm going to hell...
2006-10-11 05:07:33 PM  
At least it wasn't A-Rod.
2006-10-11 05:07:52 PM  
like they didn't need pitching already
