    Hank drops the Hammer on RSN

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3271124

    "Red Sox Nation?" What a bunch of [expletive] that is," he said in an interview with The New York Times' Play magazine. "That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans.
    "Go anywhere in America and you won't see Red Sox hats and jackets, you'll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We're going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order."
    "We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston. It is understandable, but wrong that he would try to deflect the accountability for his mistakes on to others and to a system for which he voted in favor. It is time to get on with life and forget the sour grapes."

    He reminds me of a young george. Unfortunately, I don't know if that's good or bad.
    When I was a kid, I hated George.

    Re: Hank drops the Hammer on RSN

    He's right about ESPN being a Red Sox hotbed but the term "Red Sox Nation" wasn't meant to imply that most of the country loves the Red Sox, it's meant to refer specifically to those people who root for the Sox.

    Hank talks a lot for a guy who's never really accomplished anything.

    Exactly. I especially like the part where he takes another shot at Joe Torre, saying he was "handed" a winning team. If the Yankees win it all this year, with a team that was handed to Hank, I wonder what he'll be saying about his own accomplishments.

    Hank won't allow the Yankees to be anyone's biatch.

    And all of his talk hasn't accomplished anything either

    Hanks comment on the red sox was great, finally someone stands up and points out the obvious. espn and this "red sox nation" crap is a complete steal from the term "raider nation".

    Although I admit Hank is a person who was born on third and thinks he hit a triple kind of guy, I do love this quote!

    Like father, like son.

    George talked a whole bunch of crap before he ever won anything too.

    I think it's funny. I love it when the owners talk crap.

    The fire, the life had gone out of the Yankees.

    They had become doormats in many ways.



    It's looking like that old fire may be back. I love it.
    Pardon, for us.

    becuase us yankee fans have all the confidence in the world.

    Im honestly not a big fan of any of the steinbrenners. they talk outta their a$$es.

    - the whole deadline thing with santana
    - the constant public announcements of some "meetings" whenever the yankees lose 2 straight
    - Calling out the nfl
    - Calling out Boston
    - and the fact that they want to win the world series tomoro rather than for the next 5 years.
    Phil Hughes is a starter!
