It was the last hurrah at Yankee Stadium, in case you’ve been living in a hole and not watching ESPN. The “network” has trumped this event like JFK had been shot and the grassy knoll is the outfield where Mickey Mantle used to spit tobacco.
I went to the stadium twice and the first time, sat in the nose bleeds. It was a terrible view and the stadium seemed to lack any intimacy. I followed up another time and sat in the bleachers. I thought that it was cool that the “bleacher creatures” had a song that cheered for every Yankee in the starting line-up, and that each Yankee player in the outfield would acknowledge the fans as the creatures sang the song during warm-ups. But the bleacher scene lacked the party atmosphere at Wrigley and I found most of the bleacher fans repulsive.
Swigging beers and watching Cubs games from the bleachers make for an ideal summer day in Chicago. This bleacher bum is one a few fans who caught a home run this day, while simultaneously pounding his beer. Buy this man another round, or atleast give him a high five.
Fanhouse is reporting that the American Mustache Institute endorses Jason Giambi for his amazing mustache. The team doesn’t allow any facial hair below the lip, per Mr. Steinbrenner’s edict. That being said, the Yankees gave away 20,000 fake mustaches to fans who attended last night’s game. Personally, we back the ‘stache.
“It doesn’t take a mathematician to figure out that Jason Giambi’s hitting prowess plus a fashionable mustache, equals a bona fide All-Star,” said Aaron Perlut, Executive Director of The American Mustache Institute. “Giambi’s significant first-half production as well as his powerful lip fur – indicating great intellect and good looks – make two very compelling reasons for his place on the American League All-Star roster.”
Who thought there was a relationship between a handlebar mustache and intellect?
Team Work on another level.

Mets Manager, Jerry Manuel went “Scarface” on Jose Reyes and showed him there’s a new regime at Shea Stadium.
Explaining what happened when Jose Reyes put up a fight when asked to leave Tuesday’s game with a hamstring injury, manager Jerry Manuel joked: “I told him next time he does that I’m going to get my blade out and cut him. I’m a gangster. You go gangster on me, I’m going to have to get you. You do that again, I’m going to cut you right on the field.”
Manuel is known for following the teachings of Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr., and this comment isn’t what you’d call an act of civil disobedience. However, he’s coaching in New York, so a little attitude goes a long way in the Big Apple.
