The NY Yankees winning the 2009 World Series is as exciting as...

 

  • Walmart reporting "better than expected" third quarter earnings due to summer bargain hunting and "well-timed" employee layoffs.
  • Russell Crowe winning the New York Film Review Board's supporting actor's nod for his turn as a down-and-out off-broadway impresario who teaches inner-city youth to love their bodies and themselves while updating the Hunchback of Notre Dame for South Chicago audiences in the independent film "Heaven and the Humpback."
  • Microsoft releasing version 3.0 of its critically-acclaimed Bing! search engine with better structured search for local and real estate listings.
  • Tom Cruise receiving a "People's Choice" award for his "unusually original, given the precedents" portrayal of a sexy and ambitious sports agent, who when faced with non-trivial adversity, responds with panache -- and a tagline that takes America by storm: "Give me my pocketbook, baby!"
  • "Michael Jackson's This Is It" becoming the best-selling musical performance documentary ever in Eastern European markets.
  • Greg and Bryant Gumbel receiving a "Bob Costas Distinguished Award of Merit in Sports Broadcasting" for three decades of sibling excellence in sports journalism.
  • Oprah Winfrey and Emeril Lagasse teaming up for yet another commercially successful venture in middle-market tablewares targeted to suburban family micro-niches.
  • The United States finally winning the rights, after some risky public evangelism from Vice President Joseph Biden, to finally host the Pan Am Games, after a 28-year American prestige gap, in the beautiful Mid-Atlantic city of Baltimore, MD.


How do we appropriately measure this singular moment in history? It's hard to do (and no less hard to fathom), but the comments section awaits your attempt. Help me benchmark the long-awaited epiphanic thrust of the New York baseball canon!
