The Awful Truth

So far, it seems as if there is nothing affordable about the new Yankee Stadium. Juan Gonzalez has the latest [1] in the Daily News.

In 2008, Hank Steinbrenner emerged as new voice of the Yankees. He’s good for a quote, though he’s got some big shoes to fill. Speaking of Old Lions, dig this quote from Darryl F Zanuck, “The Last Movie Tycoon:”

“We had a great preview up to the last ten minutes. Then the bottom dropped out. It ended on a laugh and it was no comedy. The preview cards were average, mostly marked fair, but gave us no clues to the ending. (God, how I hate audiences.) Suddenly, that non-existent, invisible bug whispered in my ear, as it had done all my life. I had the answer. I started to talk. Before I was half through the first sentence, the director Michael Curtiz yelled ‘Wonderful! Darryl! Yes! Yes!’

“I glared at him and said, ‘For Christ’s sake don’t say yes until I finish talking!’”
