When I saw the Gigantic block that suddenly appeared at Yankee Stadium and saw all the people walking up to touch it, I immediately thought of the Dawn of Man in 2001.
Come on! I can’t be the only one who thought of that!
I love how George’s monument dwarfs that of Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Miller Huggins, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth’s.
Were we expecting something SUBTLE?
Don’t complain folks. Steinbrenner wasn’t a subtle guy. He’s a guy who saw Yankee Stadium and said “I can do better”… TWICE!
Before anyone writes in saying I am not being respectful, remember I am a Red Sox fan who practically wrote a love letter to Steinbrenner after he died.
But look at that picture of David Wells and tell me he isn’t going to throw a bone in the air and have it turn into a spaceship!
(Hey, we’re talking about the Monolith and it is 2010! Eeerie. OK, not really.)
