No it isn't an example for the youngsters - in fact I don't think what these players do a lot of the season (especially on the road) is fit to hold up as an example to be followed. (remember "Ball Four

Besides, if all it took the last 86 years to win it all is a few stiff shots in the clubhouse before the game to get things going and win - THEN WHY THE HELL DIDN'T WE DO IT BEFORE?
Why argue with success? Set'em up barkeep! It's on me!
