    As much as I want to agree, S-P, at least it's just for one game and isn't veiled to be anything but a stunt.

    Garth Brooks, on the other hand ...

    But the holier-than-thou Yankees?

    It could be that Hank Steinbrenner isn't as hung up on being holier-than-thou.

    It's too early to know if that's really the case, but I've got nothing better ...

    Another reason to hate the Yankees? Is it Christmas already?

    God, I hope the Dodgers don't start doing this, the possibilities are horrendous to contemplate. The last thing we need is to see someone like Jack Nicholson doing this.

    I'm shocked this isn't happening WITH the Dodgers. I thought Billy was far more into following Joe Torre around like a lost puppy dog than he was into the Yankees.

    Steinbrenner: Well, here's the way I see it, Commissioner Selig. Sure, it'll make the Yankees and baseball look like a joke. But people won't be talking about steroids and HGH. And we need all the help we can get.

    Selig: Sounds like a wonderful idea to me! Wasn't Henny Youngman available, though? He's a real card. Cracks me up.

    Didn't Crystal wear a Mets hat in City Slickers?
