Everybody wins today

What did matter is that the Yankees came to campus and gave people who have been going though a tough time a reason to smile.

Several of my fellow beat writers said that when the team stopped at the memorial to the 32 victims of the shooting, a young lady asked Derek Jeter to pose for a photo with her next to the stone placed in memory of her fiancé. If that doesn’t choke you up a little, nothing will.

The Yankees signed every autograph, Johnny Damon hugged the Hokie mascot and Tech coach Pete Hughes, a Red Sox fan from Massachusetts, said he will never look at the Yankees the same way again. One of his kids was running around the field wearing a Red Sox shirt with a Yankees jersey over it.

Good job by the pinstripes today. If good karma has any influence on the season, the Yankees should have a great 2008.
