Hank Steinbrenner named Yankee of the Month

Nobody thought he had it in him.

There was the look on his mug. The cig dangling. The forehead bigger than a supermodel's back. There was the way he announced himself the new leader. There was his DNA.

We sold him short. We feared the worst.

But IT IS HIGH is proud to announce that Hank “Stubby” Steinbrenner has been named 2008 YANKEE OF THE MONTH of JANUARY.

Stubby, you proved us wrong. You didn’t trade the future to the Twins. You hung in there with A-Rod. You listened to your baseball people. And when you said something, you actually kept your word.

Congratulations, “Mr. January.”

Stubby's going to be a tough act to follow. I don't envy "Mr. February."
