The Old Man Speaks. And We Laugh.
Well, the Boss, and in my world there is only ONE BOSS, and that is Bruce Springsteen in all his 33 year glory, has spoken. The newspaper called it "THE BOSSES' FIRST BLAST." I call it "WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH." You withered idiot. It seems Georgie doesn't want any of his players to leave Spring training to play in the World Baseball Classic. Awwww. Hey Steinbrenner, and I call you by your last name only because that's what you do as a way of disrespect when you are peeved at someone. The only thing I wish for you, oh ancient blubber boy, is good health, because I cannot with my make-up wish ANYONE short of Hitler bad health. And we know what happened to him. Too quick a death, if you ask me. Wow, from Steinbrenner to Hitler. Does that tell you something?
George, your employees are just that. The slave days are over. Issue as many proclamations as you want. We smart ones, the blessed many who root for the good guys, The Boston Red Sox, will just sit back and laugh at you. And psst, why don't you personally pick out a few more players for your excuse of a team. We all know how well those picks do when you fail to discuss it with "your baseball people."
I feel so much better now. Time for breakfast and the sports pages. See ya.
