95-Year-Old Yankees Fan Afraid He'll Never Get To See Team Win 27 More World Series

NEW YORK–Michael Grippo, a 95-year-old Bronx native, told reporters Wednesday that he is 'worried sick' that he won't live to see the Yankees win another 27 World Series titles. 'We came so close in 1955, 1960, 1976, 2001, and 2004. If we had won just one of those, that would have been 27 right there,' said Grippo, adding that while he was in attendance for Tommy Henrich's walk-off homer in 1949, Don Larson's perfect game in 1956, and Mickey Mantle's game-ending home run in 1964, none of it will matter if the Yankees don't win at least another 27 World Series championships. 'I'll say this, if we could take home 27 championships just one more time, my soul will rest easy.' Grippo said that, if nothing else, he hoped his six children and 21 grandchildren would get to see the Yankees win just 1,396 more World Series in their lifetimes.
