One Team. One Mission.
From the News:
The Yankees' goal needs no explanation but they put it on a T-shirt anyway. As the Bombers completed their final preseason meetings yesterday, each player had two new shirts in his locker - one gray, one blue - that featured the same message: One team. One mission.
There was also the number 27 screened beneath the text, a reference to the Yanks' pursuit of a 27th World Series victory. Although that's no different than last year's objective (or the three years before, for that matter), there is a greater feeling of urgency among this year's team. According to GM Brian Cashman, every person in the organization - including scouts - will get one of the shirts.
And, what, the Yankees bloggers don't get one too?
That's sooooo unfair!
Actually, if you google "One team, One mission," you'll see that it's been used before by other organizations.
Maybe they should have went with something like Don't Confuse Activity with Achievement - but, that's been used already as well.
Still, I think I'm going to have to get one of those OTOM shirts when they hit the streets - which you know that they will - it could be a keeper if they win it all.
