YES Network Over/Under Competition
We know them far too well. Night after night the YES Network broadcast team brings us Emmy Award-winning productions right into our living rooms. Some love it, some hate it. But at the end of the day, we know the YES Network shticks. We know the sayings, the habits, and banter between the YES broadcasting team.
This season, Talkin’ Yanks have created an over/under competition for Yankees fans. We want our fans to fill in their over/unders. We will keep track of the winners and losers. At the end of the season, the person who gets the most correct will receive a generous prize from Talkin’ Yanks. 100+ people sign up for the competition, we will upgrade the gift into a Yankees jersey.
