With Temperatures Nearing 100, Yankee Fans Cheer Passing Cloud

In the 94 degree heat yesterday afternoon, 53,633 insane Yankee fans came out to the stadium to see the rubber match of the team's series with the Kansas City Royals. Unfortunately the fans had little to celebrate as the nearly fail-proof Mariano Rivera surrendered a go-ahead solo home run in the top of the 9th to Jose Guillen giving the Royals a 3-2 victory and a 2-2 split in the four game series. While the Yanks have been hot of late, temperatures in the northeast have catapulted well into the 90s and some cities are recording some of early June's hottest days in history. In the 7th inning yesterday, as a cloud passed in front of the sun, there was a roar of cheers from the crowd, ecstatic about a short break from sweating in every possible place!
