Yankee fans who are regulars over at Peter Abraham’s blog have already seen this, but I couldn’t resist posting it too. It’s a TV commercial for the Guitar Hero World Tour and it’s a rip off of Tom Cruise’s underwear scene in the movie “Risky Business.” Starring in the commercial is A-Rod, among others. My suggestion to him? Don’t give up your day job and let Madonna do the musical shtick.
Howard did have two hits in tonight’s loss to the Rays, but it’s clear he hasn’t been clutch in the postseason. Just look at how down in the dumps he seems while Tampa Bay celebrates.
With reports that CC Sabathia and Jake Peavy prefer to remain in the National League, that Derek Lowe longs to return to Boston and that Mark Teixeira wouldn’t mind landing in his home state of Maryland, I’m feeling slighted. What’s wrong with playing for the Yankees, people? They’re a first-class organization with a brand new ballpark and 26 World Championships. Plus, they pay well. You could do worse, believe me.
It’s in Westchester County, where lots of rich Yankees live (about 25 minutes outside the city). It sits on its very own peninsula overlooking the Long Island Sound, so you’ll have plenty of privacy. There are 4 bedrooms and 6 baths – 8,531 square feet of luxury. All for a mere $16.5 million. Sound good so far?
no Rivera has a restaurant too. Anything can happen when you put on the pinstripes.
Now that we’ve all had an aerial look at A-Rod’s Miami mansion that’s currently for sale, here’s another listing of note.
The fairy tale ended happily for the baseball team known as the…
There is breaking news out of Yankeeville. No, A-Rod didn’t opt in or out of his contract or have Scott Boras announce that he’s marrying Madonna. It was Joba who upstaged the proceedings. Seems he was driving his BMW down a Lincoln, Nebraska highway at 1 a.m. and – surprise! – he was drunk! When the police pulled him over for speeding, they discovered alcohol on his breath and an open “container” of booze on the passenger seat (hope it wasn’t that cheap wine that comes in a box – euww). So while we were all watching baseball and cursing out TBS, young Mr. Chamberlain was being arrested for a DUI.
With no baseball to watch (I can’t imagine what I’ll do after the World Series is over), I went to see the Oliver Stone movie “W.” Josh Brolin absolutely nails George Bush’s accent and mannerisms, but the movie itself is like a “Saturday Night Live” parody that lasts forever and bores you to tears. I think I nodded out a couple of times. The trailer is much more entertaining.
