    Hopefully someone told these expats the Yankees were 3000 miles away.

    TAKE THAT, HANK: The New York Observer, in China for the recent Dodgers-Padres exhibition series, reports "traces of Yankees influence were hard to find on this side of the Pacific. Among the expats at the game, Boston hats outnumbered Yankees hats by a wide margin."
    That's funny. I just got back from a two week trip to China/Hong Kong. I was looking forward to posting that the ONLY traces of MLB merchandise seen anywhere over there, were Yankee hats. I repeat...the ONLY traces I had seen were Yankees hats.

    I remember reading an article a while back that said people in China /Hong Kong buy Yankee hats because to them it symbolizes NY and it's fashionable not because they are Yankee fans. Most of them don't know what the hell the NY Yankees are.

    Do they know what a Red Sox is? For that matter, what a Sox of any color is?

    When I was living in Denmark, I saw Yankees hats all the time. There was some store called "New York" something or other that sold all the stylish Yankees hats. So, I of course had to ask one of my Danish friends if they knew what they were wearing. He said that he knew what the Yankee were, but hated the sport of baseball, and that was true of everybody. The "New York City" look is big in Europe right now, apparently.

    I've known lots of people from China. They're very fond of socks and wear them almost daily.

    Do the Yankees get the merchandising money from international sales, or does that all belong to MLB, too?

    I think they get a certain percentage.

    I only asked because I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that there's a difference in how the money is distributed between domestic merchandise sales and international sales.

    It's a vague and indistinct recollection, though, and a quick Google didn't answer the question. Does anybody know how it works?

    I just got back from Africa and all I saw were Yankee hats. Specifically, NYY 2001 WS Champions hats. They're big fans of the Superbowl XLII Champion New England Patriots there too.

    I don't own the hats. I don't own anything about them.

    (Giuseppe reference, for the uninitiated)

    By the way, I love that your location is at Gary Busey's house- I laughed out loud at that one, although that statement does have connotations to it. Hmmm......
