I don't give him any credit for the revenue increases. Revenues in almost every sport have increased at the same rate thanks to TV revenue and corporate ticket sales. Other than steroids and the strike, his long-term legacy will be the erosion of the under-40 fan base....

I did it on NYE 06/07. We took the path train in from NJ and it takes you to near Penn Station. I recommend it as a way to get home because there wasn't much of a line to get back. The parking lot at the Harrison NJ station is really sketchy, but our car was there when we got back. We got to Tim...
