Having four Yankees stars appear on "Late Night with David Letterman" Thursday night - taped at the Ed Sullivan Theater less than 24 hours after they won the World Series - was a neat echo of other, similar appearances on the same stage.
Alan Ameche visited Ed Sullivan on the very night he scored the overtime touchdown that ended the Greatest Game Ever Played in 1958.
And in 1969, the Mets got their turn, three days after winning the Series.
All of which is a very long way to go for an excuse to post my favorite sports video for the third (or maybe it's the fourth) time while telling you the time has come to begin a World Series-delayed vacation.
In my absence, please read Newsday.com early and often and enjoy its wide assortment of fine sports journalism content.
Can we start the football season now?
