Old News

Our pal She-Fan may be a boldfaced name on the New York Post's prestigious Page Six but, around here, she's hardly the only one:

NY Post, Page Six, 7-9-08:

YANKEES radio announcer John Sterling is being called out for foul behavior in the stadium's press dining room. "Sterling has made a habit of walking over to the dessert table and dipping his finger into the ice cream barrel," one stadium worker told us, adding that the play-by-play vet has also used the same tablespoon to repeatedly take samples. During the Boston series, "He wandered over to the cake and pie section, broke off a piece of a cake slice, ate it and wiped his grimy hands on the linen tablecloth, leaving the remainder of the slice for someone else to eat - which indeed happened," our spy continued. A rep for WCBS Radio declined to comment, and a team spokesman said the Yankees "know nothing about it."

This is old news, I have heard this story several times, I just wonder if it is from someone who hates Sterling.

Nutball, you're thinking of the stories about John drinking straight from the punchbowl by lifting it to his lips and/or licking his finger and touching the prime rib before anybody has had a chance at it. These are new.

When I had dinner with him, he hardly touched his osso bucco and didn't even look at the dessert menu. Maybe he was on his best behavior, although I did have to slap his hand off the bread basket.

Is "bread basket" a euphemism?
