FORDHAM - Yankees fans lined up early Thursday morning to get their hands on championship gear.

The doors to the Modell's on Fordham Road opened before sunrise and fans rushed in to get shirts, hats and more with the word ?champions? printed on them.

Store employees say they pre-ordered the merchandise, hoping the Yankees would win big; and their gamble paid off. They expect the goods to continue to fly off the shelves for the next few weeks.
