Ridolfo_Ghirlandaio_ColumbusNEW YORK- The New York Yankees easily clinched their divisional championship over the Minnesota Twins three games to none on Sunday night. However, Monday morning in New York, fans lined up along Fifth Avenue in remeberance of Christopher Columbus rather than in celebration of the victory.

Columbus, Italian by birth, is mostly known for his sailing expeditions. He has a great deal of admirers in the United States, especially New York where a university is named after him.

Even shortstop Derek Jetter seemed almost apathetic about the Yankee win. "I'm happy we won, but it's important we remember Christopher Columbus today," he said.
