What Not to Look For at Tonight's Yankee Stadium Ceremonies

As the New York Yankees prepare to close the Renovated Not-Quite House that Ruth Built tonight, the most storied franchise in sports will parade out a caravan of nostalgic players and images for the Bronx faithful (and the world) to marvel over.

Unfortunately, those players and images only tell half the story, as several people and images will likely be absent tonight.

Allow us...
  • Thurman Munson's Pilot
  • Micky Mantle's Liver
  • Babe Ruth's Colon
  • Lou Gehrig's Doctor
  • Joe Pepitone's Wig Maker
  • Bobby Murcer
  • Bobby Abreu
  • Bob Sheppard's Wherewithal
  • Wayne Tolleson
  • Cologero Anello
  • Brian McNamee
  • Mr. Wilhelm
  • Mr. May
  • Scooter
  • Skeeter
  • Beaker
  • Bunsen
  • Joe & Frank Torre
  • Buck Showalter & Stump Merrill
  • 14 Lost Years of Yogi Berra's Life
It's no secret that as iconic a franchise the Yankees are, they are hated by scores of sports fans.

Come on, Yankee haters. What other shameful, tragic or moronic Yankeeisms are we missing?

So far I haven't seen Mike Kekich and Fritz Peterson exchanging pleasantries.....among other things.

Bob Mantz said...

An A-Rod hit. A Jeter hit for that matter.

"Regardless, I could probably just go out there and do something, stand there and take some pitches. But no, I'm going to play tomorrow."

Well, looks like that's what he did...

Seeing as they were playing the Orioles, they should have had Jeffrey Mayer and Tony Tarasco as special guests.
