Your boys took a hell of a beating!

....and with the final out at Yankee stadium, a crackling, lonely voice rose through the radio airwaves from Columbus to Akron, his urgent, frenzied call to go down in history..

"Woody Allen, Rudy Guliani, John McEnroe, Tony Soprano, Tupac Shakur, Spike Lee, George Gershwin, Jackie Gleason, we have beaten them all, we have beaten them all. Billy Crystal, can you hear me? Billy Crystal ... your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!"



With respect and apologies to the great Bjørge Lillelien (March 29, 1927 – October 26, 1987)

You think Steinbrenner will actually fire Torre?

Cormac said...

Maybe that was Georgie Porgie trying to rile up his troops, or maybe he really will sack Torre. If he does, it's an inane move as Torre isn't the problem. He's not the one going 4/19 in the ALDS.

word is torre is out and larussa is the front runner. i didn't think the yankees could get more boring/corporate/overrated.

If Torre is fired some other team will be more than glad to pick him up. He is a great manager.
