To My Friend...

Most of you have probably learned that my friend, and co-founder of The Greedy Pinstripes, Daniel Burch had a baby yesterday. I couldn't be happier for him, as he's not only an incredible guy, but an amazing father. Hayden Alexander, like his older brother Evan, are two lucky kids.

I met Daniel online years ago. You see, I live in Columbus, Ohio, so you can imagine that there are very few people to talk about the Yankees with. So I was looking around the internet for message boards, and there was this "DBurch" guy. Honestly, I can't remember what his exact username was, but I do remember having some great conversations with him.

I may not remember his username, nor can I remember the message board we met at, but I can say without any BS at all that he's made me a better Yankees fan.

Congratulations, Daniel.


  1. Bryan Van Dusen..nice words regarding your friend. Thanks for the heads up, on the newborns name.
    I thought for was going to be patrick.
    A best friend of mine, from my US Navy days, lives in Columbus, Ohio. We'll save that one.
    Take care.

  2. Very well done young man, you are a stand-up guy and Daniel is lucky to have you as a friend.
    Another boy, good show to Daniel and the Boss of the house! Hayden, ok nice name...!

    1. I am truly blessed to have Bryan. Great guy, loyal guy, etc. Again Ken Reed Burch wouldnt fly for whatever reason.

  3. Yeah couldnt sell the wife on Patrick Walsh Burch for whatever reason, racism probably ;)

  4. Racism? You have something against Green Guys with Yellow spots? LOL
    Yha, you made a good choice...Ken or Patrick sort of common. I like Hayden, sounds manly (is that a word?)

    1. Hayden is not a name you hear around much so that is what we were going for. Thanks again everyone.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
