Salacious Sal Marchiano : More Than You Wanted To Know About Mantle’s Groin

While his daughter Sam was just a lucky break or two away from having a retarded irreverent blog named after her, former WNBC sports anchor Sal Marchiano is all too happy to spills the sexy beans from his long and storied careed. From Page Six’s Richard Johnson :

In his new, self-published memoir, “In My Rear View Mirror,” veteran TV sports reporter Sal Marchiano writes that red-headed Eastern Airlines flight attendant Martha Haines bedded Mickey Mantle over an eight-year period in which she also carried on with Vice President Spiro Agnew (above) during his White House years.

Haines tells Marchiano: “Mickey knew about Ted [Agnew's nickname], but Ted didn’t know about Mickey, who would always telephone and cry out, ‘How’s Spy-ro?’ Mickey used to tell me to break dates with Ted to be with him. It was easy because I could always say the airline called for an assignment. I didn’t want to marry either one of them, both had families.”

Marchiano also reveals how Mantle sent a jaw-dropping answer to the Yankees front office when he was asked to recall his fondest memory of Yankee Stadium for the 50th anniversary of “The “House that Ruth Built.” Mantle wrote back: “I got [oral sex] under the right-field bleachers by the Yankee bullpen. It was about the third or fourth inning. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t [bleep] at the time. She was a very nice girl . . .”

After Curtis Granderson led off the Tigers’ first inning with an inside the park HR off Philip Hughes today, YES’ Michael Kay said of Comerica, “this is a different ballpark…from other ballparks.” That’s why they’re paying Kay the big bucks, ladies and gentlemen. To make bold, provocative statements.
