(The following is being syndicated from The Captain’s Blog).
I’m not a big fan of the NFL, at least not the mediocrity and gimmickry that have become its ideals, but in honor of the Giants Super Bowl encore against the Patriots, the table below contains every World Series rematch (same participants within a five-year span) since the inception of the Fall Classic.
Not surprisingly, the Yankees have been involved in all but three of the World Series encores, and, in the games that actually constituted the rematch (i.e., not including the initial series in the string), the Bronx Bombers went 11-3. So, from a New York perspective, that could be a good omen for the football Giants (although, the baseball New York Giants were 1-2 in rematch series). Regardless of the implications, the Yankees ability to either avenge a World Series loss or defend a championship is only further evidence of what Giants’ defensive end Justin Tuck stated last month: when it comes to sports in New York, the Yankees are the team that runs the town.
