They just don't want me to follow sports at all!

More bad news. Mitt Romney is in talks to buy a piece of the Yankees. Reportedly a life long Red Sox fan he wants to buy a piece of the Yankees because it would be a better investment. According to Breitbart News:

“If the deal goes through, it is expected to be $25 million to $30 million per percentage point and thought to be interested in one or two percentage points. The Yankees are valued around $3 billion or more.
Mitt Romney, in response to an earlier version of this story about his potential involvement in a sale, denied that he’s involved in the talks in a statement, per a spokesperson. The former governor of Massachusetts, Romney is a lifelong Red Sox fan and is sensitive to being associated with the Yankees after hearing early reaction from Red Sox fans.
Romney has apparently conquered his sensitivity towards an association with the Yankees by making the purchase through his son, Tagg, as a part of the family business."
Seriously. This loser Rhino wants to be an owner of the Yankees? Not since Mike Burke has such a liberal weenie had something to do with the team. How is that going to work? The Steinbrenner family is not going to cede control to him. Is he going to be a silent partner? Is he going to insist that we forfeit the game if we are behind in the first inning? Is he going to fold if the umpire  yells at him? Why oh why would they do this?
I wish George were still alive. We would have won a few more championships and he would have nipped this bullshit in the bud.

If George Romney was still alive I would still be driving Ramblers and running them and my brain through the car wash.

Can you play baseball while wearing magic underwear?

Talking to a fan of the Dodgers when they were still in Brooklyn.

It's been bugging me since I wrote it:

Replace "If George Romney was still alive" with "Were George Romney still alive". That is all.

Will he replace the team with Chinese and Indian HB1 players?

That hurts to think about, and I'm not even a Yankees fan. Is nothing sacred?
