Where is Hank?


Don't think we (meaning I) haven't noticed. 

One of the key players (a non-player) has been MIA. We expect he'll surface shortly like an oversized besotted groundhog, utter some incomprehensible hyperbolic pronouncement, then fade away, presumably back to the fleshpots of Dale Mabry.

The Fredo Corleone of the Yankee Family, Henry George "Hank" Steinbrenner IV, has largely been absent from view since last June when he proclaimed "we're greedy," as the Yanks made their early-Summer pennant feint.

His son, George Michael Steinbrenner IV, works with a team of people who drive around in circles. (He's inherited his father's rugged good looks, too.)

But where is the heart and soul of the family, the brawn of the operation? Is it time to put his ugly mug on a milk carton — as if that would do any good?


Time will tell. We (meaning I) will be waiting.

LIKE ALL OF US, I WAS HORRIFIED WHEN HANK HAD THE REIGNS FOR THAT SHORT WHILE.

CRAZY COMMENTS, SOME WILD SPOKEN SCENARIOS, AND SOME TERRIFYING ARTICLES CHRONICLING HIM, HAD US ALL CHILLED TO THE BONE THAT HANK WOULD TAKE OVER.

WHEN HAL TOOK OVER WE WERE ALL RELIEVED....

BUT I HAVE BEEN THINKING....

IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN, THE LAST TIME WE SAW HANK REGULARLY, WAS IN 2009.

MAYBE HE IS AN IDIOT SAVANT OF SOME SORT?

PUT HANK BACK IN CHARGE!!

I know that guy! That's Curly Joe, The Last Stooge!!! You'll never see him again, people. He's dead.

I think Hank is in Cuba, acting as a stand-in for one of the Castros.
