Happy Anniversary! I mean, birthday! I mean...thanks for reading!

I just got an email with the receipt for my domain name, which means this little blog is two years old today. My, how you have grown, my darling Your Baseball Girl.

If this were our second wedding anniversary, I would give you some cotton (A Jeter jersey, perhaps) and if it were your second birthday, I would make you a cake (eh, maybe a cookie cake) but it's not. Heck, it's not even MY birthday (cake/cake/cake/cake/cake link NSFW without headphones).

And it's not even my birthday... (Image/Blippitt)

To my readers, thank you so much for clicking and making sense of my ramblings, especially those of you who read my blog from Germany and China (I know you guys LOVE DHAB and she loves you too) and thanks for continuing to read in 2012. Go Yankees!

Lunch Break: My Twitter Feed Is Blowing Up

Oh my, Andy. How you can take a gray New York late winter day and make it seem like heaven.

About 20 minutes ago, I signed on to Twitter to do something time-wasting and saw "Andy Pettitte is back!" "Yay boi, Andy Pettitte!" and the like. I exclaimed "Oh my God" and ran to the office TV in the front of the office. After reassuring my colleagues that it was Yankees-related news and not that the world was ending, I was unable to find coverage on our basic cable, however my Twitter peeps had all the information we needed.

Within minutes, Andy Pettitte was a trending topic on Twitter (see below) and my Twitter feed was blowing up with elated messages and simple cries of "ANDY PETTITTE!)

My Twitter feed shortly after the news broke. Note the one dude talking about Manningham (click to enlarge)

Could there be more glorious Yankees news? Bernie, anything you would like to announce?
