Episode 28: Johnny Damon, Roger Clemens And More

Well, this is a rather interesting episode. I spent the weekend (and the better part of Tuesday night/Wednesday) hosting social media content for Mohegan Sun, the awesome resort in Uncasville, Connecticut. On Saturday, Mohegan Sun opened “novelle,” a new supper club/hip spot to eat and drink. I hosted the live red carpet broadcast on the resort’s Facebook page. The big guest of honor was Khloe Kardashian. However, a number of other celebrities were in attendance as well, including former Yankee stars Johnny Damon and Roger Clemens.

You’ll hear from both “Johnny Rocket” and “Rocket” plus the super-talented singer Ciara. I know, you’re scratching your head as to why she would be included. Here’s a hint: she may have been at a Yankee win the night before. Here’s another: you may know her husband as both a Super Bowl-winning Quarterback and a Yankee minor league player.

A huge thank you to Mohegan Sun for not only having me but for allowing me to use this audio for the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast. And of course, thanks to you for rating/reviewing/subscribing and listening!

Episode 27: YES Network’s Jack Curry On Cone Book!

We start off episode 27 by filling you in on where I’ve been (specifically, inside some parts of Yankee Stadium that previously I hadn’t seen), offering our prayers to David Ortiz for his recovery and talking about a few recent Yankee hats I’ve purchased/received.

Then, it’s on to the main attraction on this week’s show: YES Network analyst Jack Curry. Of course, Jack co-authored “Full Count: The Education of a Pitcher” with David Cone. Jack and I talk about the book’s creation and some of its more interesting chapters.

By the way, I bought the book and highly recommend it. I’ll tell you why in this episode.

And as always, thanks for rating/reviewing/subscribing wherever you found us!

Episode 26: John Oliver’s Comments, Ticketing, New Merch!

Yankees Universe was a bit up-in-arms over recent light-hearted comments from TV host, comedian and Mets fan John Oliver during a recent Mets game on PIX11. We’ll run back those comments, plus explain Oliver’s recent history with the Yankees (and yours truly) in this episode.

Also, I sold a ticket on the Gametime app for the first time this past weekend – we’ll chat about that and some of the new merchandise hitting the field over the next few weeks.

Finally – a few thoughts this week on the Fanatics acquisition of Steiner Sports’ inventory and what it means for Yankee collectors moving forward.

As always, thanks for rating/reviewing/subscribing wherever you get us!
