Mayor Bloomberg Already Planning Ticker Tape Parade

A lot of people are going to see this as a bad omen and I can’t blame them, but it appears that Mayor Michael Bloomberg is already planning for another Yankees ticker tape parade.

Via the NY Daily News:

When it comes to the Yankees, Mayor Bloomberg is already thinking sweep – and street sweepers.

With the Bronx Bombers up 2-0 in their first-round series with the Twins, the mayor confessed he’s plotting another World Series ticker-tape celebration in the Canyon of Heroes.

“I’m sort of trying to figure out where the parade should start,” the mayor said Friday on his weekly radio show. “We have to plan.”

I should add, I went to the parade last season and it seemed like they put almost no thought into it whatsoever. So this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  It was really boring with large gaps in between the floats. Many floats were carrying people that were just friends and family of Yankee front office members, who wants to see them?

So maybe starting on this early just in case could help make it a more enjoyable experience. Or maybe Bloomberg should just call former mayor Rudy Giuliani, he threw some great parades.

      The team with exactly as many titles as another team that hasn't won ANY since 1908?

      The team that is still three titles BEHIND the team that it shared the city with and who left after 1954…and who have won four more titles after they left?

    Well, Bloomberg is the south end of a north-bound horse IMHO.
