Yankees skip baseball for 8 ball
Finally, some good press coverage out of the Steinbrenner bunker down there in Tampa. After several weeks of dealing with fallout from Selena Roberts screwing one of the plumbers, and the ensuing A-Rod admissions, the Yankees are back in the headlines for more appropriate reasons.
No ,not Derek Jeter's pulled hammy and limited range, we're talking about a day-long full-on 8 ball binge. If this isn't the definitive statement that the Yankees of a bygone era are back, I don't know what is.
You sorta have to admire the Yankees team building activities—if you are a club promoter at Studio 54. Last year, they are sharing "Golden Thongs" to get out of slumps, and this year, they team up for some "8 ball" for a team building event.
I think the only winner in this story besides Mariano Rivera, whose disposition to dominating the 8 ball clearly stems from his native Panama's proximity to Colombia, is the owners of Peabodys. Now they will see in influx in coke fiends, large, hairy thong-wearing men, and the groupies who follow them coming to their pool hall.
Go support Peabody's Billiards if you are in the New Tampa area, despite being one of the only places to party and play pool out there. It is also a great place to check out some of the fine USF Bull females.
