1995 vs. 2008

As we all know, the Yankees are going to miss the playoffs for the first time since the 1995 season.

Here are some differences between 1995 and 2008:

Gasoline: In 1995, gas cost 88 cents. Today, the average cost of a regular gallon of gas in New York is $3.778.

President: Bill Clinton was finishing up his first term as Commander-in-Chief in 1995. Today, George W. Bush is finishing up his second term as President.

Stadium: Yankee Stadium would go on to have 13 more years of life after the 1995 season. Today, Yankee Stadium is closed forever.

Championships: The Yankees had 22 championships in their history through 1995. Through 2008, they have 26.

School: In September 1995, I began second grade. In August 2008, I began my junior year in college.

Movies: The highest-grossing film in 1995 was Toy Story. Its 2008 counterpart is The Dark Knight.
