To celebrate the bard's 400th: STEINBRENNER IN LOVE

Frank Cammuso and I did this for the NY Times, long ago... like 1999.

ACT I, SCENE I. February. In a field. Thunder and lightning.
RIZZUTO: Single, double; bullpen trouble.
Owner burn and pitcher bubble.

They're not great'st by far, enough, for he.
What huckl'berries these mortals be!
YOGI: 'Tis deja vu -- again, I see...
