VCR Alert : Michael Kay Visits The Center Of Steinbrenner’s Mind

Posted in Baseball, Sports TV at 11:55 am by

In a programing move that should forever squash the notion that the YES Network serves as a propaganda arm for the Yankee empire, Michael Kay’s 90 minute conversation with George Steinbrenner will be aired this Sunday at 5pm, EST.

I wonder if the number of times the names “Nixon”, “Spira” or “Winfield” are uttered will be greater than zero.

    Okay, fair enough, but you do realize that YES stands for “Yankees Entertainment & Sports,” don’t you? So, you’d kinda expect the network that exists solely to broadcast Yankee games and Yankee-related nostalgia to be a little Yankee-centric. I mean you’d have to be pretty stupid to expect anything other than Yankee “propaganda” from the Yankee Entertainment and Sports network, right?

    Oh, one more thing; if you don’t want people to think that you’re less than well-read, the word is “Quash” – not “Squash.” Seriously. Look it up.

    I don’t think I said I expected any more or less from the YES Network.

    The following are commonly accepted definitions for “squash” when it is used as a verb :

    to supress, stifle or subdue a feeling, conjecture or action ,

    to firmly reject an idea or suggestion, eg. ,
    “the anonymous, cowardly attempt at criticism was immediately squashed”.

    Though quash would’ve worked, too.
