THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE FUNNY, GEORGE STEINBRENNER

Posted by HG on July 10, 2007

A so so takeoff on the Seinfeld Steinbrenner. If Ace would have hit The Boss with the bat, then they mighta been on to something. If nothing else, the video gives me a chance to talk about Time magazine’s Ten Most Notorious Presidential Pardons.

The list was made before Scooter Libby got a pass, in anticipation of Bush looking out for his boy. To my surprise, George Steinbrenner came in at #7. I had no idea George was rollin like that.

Indicted on 14 criminal counts on April 5, 1974, the owner of the New York Yankees plead guilty to obstruction of justice and conspiring to make illegal contributions to President Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign.

Steinbrenner got let off the hook by Ronald Reagan in ’89, proving that he really is a Boss. Ah, 1989.. One year after the Yankees traded Jay Buhner.

HI, I’M ALEX RODRIGUEZ OF THE NEW YORK YANKEES

Posted by HG on May 23, 2007

A-Rod changes diapers, saves babies, and gets people off of drugs and Jeter still hates him.. Damn, what’s a fella to do? And if helping people makes you screw up during the game, D.J. and Robinson Cano must be Batman and Robin in their spare time.. They’ve combined for 14 errors this season. **YBB GUARANTEE**  Ruben Rivera is somewhere rocking the chain that A-Rod dropped on the ground at the end of the video.

5 seconds after Roger Clemens announced that he was going to the Yankees I started receiving “Roger and Andy sittin in a bullpen” text and emails. There’s obviously no truth to the jokes…….. But this video is funny nonetheless.

I don’t think the Yankees are gonna have to worry about Roger not being around Andy the team on his off days.
