Welcome to The Delusional World of Hankenstein

Hank Steinbrenner (pictured) has been shooting off his yapper once again.

And he's declaring war on the Red Sox and their supporters. He gave an interview to the New York Times where he basically trashed Red Sox Nation:

Here's the rantings:
"Red Sox Nation?” Hank says. “What a bunch of [expletive] that is. That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans. Go anywhere in America and you won’t see Red Sox hats and jackets, you’ll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We’re going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order.”

Hey, George is insane, and I think his kid has flipped his noodle, too. Hankenstein just can't help but run off his big bazoo and look like a total fool. And boy, is this guy totally delusional. "This is a Yankee country?" So, has Hank ever been out of New York City in his life? "Restore the universe to order?" Tee-hee. Hey, Hank, the days of the arrogant, obnoxious Yankee fan's birthright to win the World Series every year is over, forever. Get used to it.

This is going to be a fun year, watching the Baby Boss self-destruct when watching the Yankees fall short yet again. It's been too long since we've had fun watching a Steinbrenner go ballistic over every Yankee loss.

So, you want a war, jackass? You've got one.

Hah! Hankenstein. Though he's more of a Hankendouche, if you ask me, Q.

Damn - I just googled it, and I can't claim full credit: http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3964248&postcount=1633

Though I did come up with it separately. What is it about Hank Steinbrenner that makes two completely different people come up with Hankendouche within two months of eachother? HMMM?

Hank is off his meds. Sorry, but that was so funny I was crying.

It is never difficult to hate The Yankees. However, Hank is such a blowhard-even more than his dad-that this is going to be fun to watch.

Da Stadium may be torn down early thanks to Hank's tantrums

Hal was locked in a closet for several years for coming home from his prom, until he was given control over the S I Yankees.
