billy crystal to play for the yankees
Kevin Kernan of the New York Post throws some cold water on the idea of Billy Crystal playing for the New York Yankees for one day on Thursday. Only adding to the comedy, of course, is the fact that Crystal will play for the Yanks in a spring training game against my Pittsburgh Pirates, which means he'll probably get a couple of hits. The phenomenal Pirates blog Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke? suggests the Pirates should counter by having actor Michael Keaton, a Pittsburgh native and fan, similarly suit up for the Bucs. "Of course," WHYGAVS writes, "[Keaton] could probably start at third for us, so maybe we should spare ourselves the embarrassment." Boy do I hate being a Pirates fan.
