2 more owners and we'll get this thing rolling!

If you've thought about giving this one a shot, now's the time to do it...

Alright, you have my attention. Count me in. This is my first progressive, but the theme is impossible to pass up.

This would be a good one to keep going beyond 30 Years!

I'm not sure I can resist building around the Babe. I am in if you will have me.

1 quick question, and it may have been in the original rules and I just missed it. Do I always need to have a Yankee on my team? Obviously with Babe, I am covered until sometime in the 30's, but just want to be clear for moving forward.
