New York Yankees Preview: This Is Not Happening, by Ari Shaffir

Comedian Ari Shaffir wasn't born a New York Yankees fan; he became one in second grade. Out of necessity. Of course, in the decades since, that fateful decision has come back to haunt him, and as the Bombers reeled off championship after championship, he was accused of being a bandwagon jumper, or a fair-weather fan. Turns out, neither is true – and Shaffir's out to prove it this year, as he hangs tough with the team through what many believe will be a season in the abyss. It seems the title of his Comedy Central show, "This Is Not Happening," might prove oddly prophetic.
