Come get your knuckle sandwich
After his Yankees lost a third straight game of the series against the LA Dodgers, Steinbrenner met with the press in Los Angeles with a cast on his hand, along with a wild tale of what had happened.
Steinbrenner claimed he had broken his hand while mixing it up with a couple of Dodgers fans...in a hotel elevator. Supposedly, these lowlifes had called the Yankees chokers, so George had no choice but to punch them out.
“I clocked them," he said. “There are two guys in this town looking for their teeth who will probably sue me.”
Alas, there were no witnesses, and no one ever stepped forward to file charges, as it became clear the incident had actually occurred in Steinbrenner’s head.
