I am Legend starring Hollywood hunk Bruce Lee is on HBO right now, and it's striking me how similar it is to the New York Baseball Yankees. Allow me to explain.
A - Will Smith is in I am Legend. Will Smith was also in Ali, in which he played a little known but fascinating boxer named Roy Jones Jr. Boxers are athletes. Athletes play baseball. Baseball is played by the New York Yankees.
B - Will Smith's character is a scientist administering drugs to a series of zombies. Scientists are arguably administering drugs to a significant portion of the zombies on the Yankee's payroll.
3 - Speaking of payroll, Will Smith is richer than a donkey-haired dingleberry, similar to Yankees owner George Stephanopoulos.
Next - Jorge Posada looks like he belongs in Who-ville.
4 - The Yankees have been involved in a handful of fights over the years. Dr. Robert Neville fights for his life in the movie I am Legend.
E - Billy Crystal is a big Yankees fan.
F - Both I am Legend and the New York Yankees were written by February-born FBI agent/Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star Richard Matheson.
G - Yankee history is steeped with tradition. I am Legend takes place in the history.
H - Derek Jeter made his first career major league start on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Are the Yankees copying off of I am Legend or is this just a coincidence? Yes. And frankly someone should do something about it.
