A Hank Steinbrenner sighting. Hank attended a news conference for Hanks’ Yanks, which is the 18-and-under team that he sponsors.
In his first public appearance since the death of his father, George, on July 13, Steinbrenner, 53, said that the direction of the professional franchise would not change with his father gone: winning comes first, always, as it had when George was the principal owner. He also made a not-so-daring prediction that the Yankees would make the playoffs, but he declined to discuss the future of Manager Joe Girardi, whose contract expires after the season.
“It’s always going to be the same,” Steinbrenner said in a brief meeting with reporters. “We play to win. We do what we have to do to win. We don’t make a lot of money because of revenue sharing, and we don’t shy away from paying salaries.”
Reggie Jackson was considered to play the role of Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Former Yankees manager, Joe Torre, was apparently approached about buying part of the LA Dodgers. “I get people who make all kinds of suggestions all the time, and especially with the mood of everything going on around here right now it’s not surprising,” said Torre.
And though skeptics claimed Diaz’s relationship with Alex Rodriguez was just a fling, it turns out they’re well-matched for each other.
An insider told press, “They met at the right time — they’re in tune with each other and ready for a serious commitment. Cameron love that Alex is hard-working, intelligent and sexy. For her, it’s the whole package.”
“She tells dirty jokes, drinks beer and can hold her own discussing just about any sport. Alex fell in love with her because she’s one of the guys, but can turn on the sex appeal and femininity too.”
