The New York Yankees faithful came up with a beauty on Saturday night, chanting “Uber, Uber, Uber” at Minnesota Twins RHP Randy Dobnak.
Plenty of beauties have graced the New York sports landscape through the years. Of course, “beauties,” in this regard, references stadium and arena chants at opposing players, coaches and teams.
“Can you hear us?” coming from the Madison Square Garden crowd that was directly shouted at then-Washington Capitals head coach Barry Trotz remains memorable.
“Who’s your daddy?” coming from the Yankee Stadium crowd directed towards Pedro Martinez will forever be remembered.
And now, circa Saturday night, Oct. 5, 2019, another beauty makes its way into city lore.
“Uber, Uber, Uber …” is the chant New York Yankees fans used in Game 2 of the ALDS.

The story of Minnesota Twins right-handed pitcher Randy Dobnak is well-documented. Prior to latching on with the Twinkies late in the season, he earned money as an Uber driver.
Story-after-story made it impossible not to know the tremendous tale. It also provided ammunition.
Dobnak didn’t fare too well in his first postseason start. In just two innings of work, Dobnak relented four runs on six hits and two walks. He didn’t strike out a single Yankee.
The Twins bullpen didn’t pitch well, either. New York currently leads the contest 8-1 in the top of the sixth inning, already holding a 1-0 series lead.
