Yankees Postpone World Series Due To Conflict With Aqueduct Opening Day

The Bronx- Citing sluggish ticket sales due to competition in the sports leisure market, the Yankees have postponed game one of the World Series to Thursday. Harold Z. Steinbrenner the managing general partner summed up the situation "there was no way we could go up against an attendance juggernaut like opening day at Aqueduct, even with poor weather they are going to fill the Ozone Park grandstand with 60K; while weather was a consideration only a fool would go up against opening day at Aqueduct " It seems like the parimutuel juggernaut once again has held sway in the sports world. The Yankees will be relegated to opening the series on Thursday. When asked why the Aqueduct meet is so long NYRA prez Charlie Haywood had this to say " our fans can not get enough of Aqueduct, it is an urban oasis of parimutuel splendor". The Yankees will be looking to capture their 27th World Series title when play opens on Thursday, the team from Philly will be looking to win consecutive titles.

Editors Note: Kate Hudson will sing the National Anthem at the Big A.

Said Kate: "I wish to announce by break up with Yankee Slugger Alex Rodriguez. I am now dating a 3 year colt who will be running this winter at the Big A. He is just as cute as A-Rod and takes just as many steroids!" We could not be happier and I will be staying with him at his stable in the Backstretch."
