Our 2007 payroll: $218.3 million.
U.S. Pop: 303.2 million.
U.S. Taxpayers: 130.7 million (2003)
What a bunch of cheapskates.
The skinflint Yankees, America's richest team, couldn't even shell out team worth a buck a person? What an insult. They wouldn't even buy America a cup of coffee at McDonalds.
Well, you dirty dimesuckers, you get what you pay for.If it hadn't been for Roger Clemens and A-Rod, the Yanks wouldn't have even spent enough to supersize an order of French fries for the average American.
As it turned out, the 2007 payroll could have bought every U.S. taxpayer a condom. ($1.67/per taxpayer.)
Well, as Clarence Thomas would say, "Whooptee-damn-doo."
If you're going to be cheap, Steinbrenner, why field a team?
Give America a Yankee Dollar Menu!
Spend a buck on the Yankees for every man, woman and child in the country.
We can build the Yankees into a luxury paradise on earth.
Not even six bits per person?
No wonder we couldn't beat Cleveland.
