The year was 1973, and the New York Yankees Vice President at the time Bob Fishel was gathering thoughts from former Yankee Greats on their favorite experiences from the Old Stadium.
You may or may not know the 1973 season was to be the last season played at the ORIGINAL Old Yankee Stadium. In ’74 they did renovations to the ballpark and the Yankees didn’t return until the newly renovated building opened for the 1976 season. If you care they played those two seasons at the Mets ballpark, Shea Stadium.
So Fisher sent out a letter to many Yankees, but the one he sent to Mickey Mantle will live in infamy. The response Fishel got from “The Mick” was PRICELESS.
Take a look at the ORIGINAL Letter sent by Fishel and the Yankees dated December 1972.
If you can’t read the writing, this is what it said:
New York Yankees Inc.
As you probably know, 1973 marks the 50th anniversary of Yankees Stadium and we are going to have a season-long Golden Anniversary celebration. We hope to mark the occasion on our Old Timers Day, Saturday, August 11, as well as on individual dates during the season.
We thought it would be interesting to learn from you what you consider your outstanding event at Yankee Stadium. In many cases the answer is obvious, but because we are writing a large number of your former team mates, we are asking you to answer this question for us.
1973 will be the final season at Yankee Stadium as we know it. We will be located at Shea in 1974 and ’75 while Yankee Stadium is completely rebuilt to reopen in 1976.
Thanks for your cooperation. We are looking forward to seeing you in 1973 and wish you a happy holiday season.
Very truly yours,
(Signed, ‘Bob Fishel’)

I consider the following my outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium:
— I got a blow-job under the right field Bleachers, by the Yankee Bull pen.
This event occurred on or about: (Give as much detail as you can)
— It was about the third or fourth inning. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t fuck at the time. She was a very nice girl and asked me what to do with the cum after I came in her mouth. I said don’t ask me, I’m no cock-sucker.

I mean I knew Peter always had a thing for Tom, just read his EVER so famous “Monday Morning Quarterback” on SI.com and you’d think he’d want to film Mr.Brady in a soft-core porn film, but I never knew he LOVED him THIS MUCH.
Just listen closely to the questions Peter is asking Tom at his Press Conference.
Now that is NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE, only here on FloppingOut are we that exclusive that we’d be able to get our hands on a piece of treasure like this. Handle with care!
The New York Jets Strength and Conditioning coach Sal Alosi, the guy who was in the middle of the “TripGate” incident this past December “Resigned” today a teams spokesman said.
Alosi was suspended indefinitely after he tripped Miami Dolphins Special Teams gunner Norman Carroll on the Jets sideline as he was running down the field after a punt. The following day Alosi was suspended without pay and fined $ 50,000.
The Jets said Alosi admitted to the team that he told the inactive players to form a wall on the sideline during punts.
Today, Alosi took the ultimate fall by resigning, if you want to call it that. The conspiracist in me thinks Alosi ultimately took the blame for the whole situation so that it didn’t become a league wide investigation and something tells me Sal made out on this deal pretty well, I’m $ure the Jet$ took very good care of $al with a nice $everance.
Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement that it was Alosi’s decision
“After speaking with Sal, he decided that it is best for him to tender his resignation at this time,” Tannenbaum said. “We appreciate all of Sal’s contributions during his tenure with the team. He played an invaluable role in our success and established what we feel is one of the better strength and conditioning programs in the NFL.
Believe Mike if you want, or you can think for yourself, it’s your call you floppy bastahds!
Check out the video from the Jets Dolphins game back in December, in case you’ve been living under a rock since then.
Although unofficial, Major League Baseball is expected to award the New York Mets’ new ballpark CitiField the 2013 MLB All Star Game and all the other festivities. (Home Run derby, Celeb All Star Game, etc) The Mets haven’t hosted an All Star Game since 1964, the first year of their old home Shea Stadium.
If you follow baseball you know that CitiField isn’t exactly a launching pad for Home runs. That will DEFINITELY turn all the major stars onto the Home Run Derby. Not! …. CitiField’s dimensions have been heavily criticized by fans, and other media in New York, so much so that Management had to discuss whether or not to make some adjustments….didn’t happen. CitiField is home to a ridiculous 16-foot wall in Left Field, stretching all the way to left center. Then turn your attention to right field, and we’d like to welcome you to the Grand Canyon, a deep gap that goes 378 ft deep. Yeah, this will be a very entertaining Home Run Derby. Your winner, Jeff Francouer with 1 HR. Jeff just LOVES CitiField.
While it’ll be excellent to have all this in NYC, this maybe your last chance to see something exciting in this stadium for a long time, don’t miss it!
We here at FloppingOut LOVE Tracy Morgan, he tells it like it is and his stupid humor is awesome. His recent quote on “Inside the NBA” of TNT before the Knicks and Heat game took my love for Tracy Morgan to a whole ‘nother level.
Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley were covering the game for TNT and Morgan is a huge Knicks fan, so while MSG who better to ask the famous question (or argument) that Kenny “the Jet” and Sir Charles have, who is hotter Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?
As you may or may not know Tracy Morgan and Tiny Fey both star on NBC’s hit show “30 Rock” I’m guessing that is where the basis of Barkley and Smith’s reasoning came from for asking Morgan the question.
Anyway let’s get down to business. The question was brought upon Morgan “Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?” Morgan then replied with an AMAZING quote.
“Now let me tell you something about Sarah Palin man, she’s good masturbation material. The glasses and all that? Great masturbation material.”
AMAZING! how can you NOT love Morgan. On live television that quote is absolute gold. Of course the networks and suits weren’t happy about it, so in a typical ass saving matter TNT sent out an apology to the former Alaskan governor.
“It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments,” said Turner spokesman Jeff Pomeroy in a statement.
The best reaction of all had to be the third wheel in the TNT broadcast Ernie Johnson, or the crypt keeper if you will. In trying to make the situation a little less awkward, Johnson did his best to make it every bit and more with his remarks out of pure nervousness, if that’s a word. ” Want to thank Tracy Morgan for stopping by.”
I love stupid interviews and quotes from celebrities/athletes like this.
See the video here for yourselves.
You’re the man Tracy Morgan!
Now we ask you in all seriousness who would you rather, Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?
