15 Minutes Without a GEICO Ad

If you live in the New York market, it’s almost impossible to go 15 minutes without being exposed to a GEICO commercial.

That’s why I was amazed—and relieved—not to see any GEICO ads among the billboards at the new Yankee Stadium yesterday. That was until Mark Teixeira hit this home run (click the video above).

Perhaps this millennium’s Yankee teams are suffering from the same Curse of the Gecko that has befallen the New York Mets.

But then again, as a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, how could I possibly believe in superstitions or curses? Baaahhhh.
