John Henry: Super Genius

You've got to love this. In response to Hank Steinbrenner (aka Mr. Hankee, Hankenstein, etc.) and his utterly dimwitted remarks about the Red Sox and their fans, Red Sox owner John Henry came back with what I believe to be the perfect response to it.

He's adopted Hankenstein as a member of Red Sox Nation.

Henry sent him a membership card "giving him access to an array of options including our newsletter, bumper stickers, pins, Green Monster seats and a hat personally autographed by David Ortiz."

More from the Boston Herald: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/baseball/red_sox/view.bg?articleid=1077223&srvc=redsox&position=1

Perfect. It makes the Baby Boss look even more like the total schmuck that he is.

Hank gave plenty of new material for comedy writers everywhere.

John Henry had a laugh and did a perfect capper by bringing Hank into The Nation.

Hank's mania has made me laugh harder than I have in a long time.

Keep at it, jagoff

It's been a while since we've had a Steinbrenner to laugh at. Should be a fun summer.

Saw this story first thing this morning and have been telling anyone who'll listen about it all day long. I don't think John Henry could possibly have come up with a better response. There's a guy from Boston among the crew of regulars at the bagel shop I frequent. We shared a long laugh when I relayed the story and look forward to years of entertainment from Lil' Hanky.

You know what would be fun?

A Media Machine Pool of when Hank's first eruption of The regular season will be!!

or when will Cashman be fired? Girardi get canned??

The back pages of the Post and Daily News just found their go to guy!!

Not a bad idea, Steel. Before the season begins, I may put up my first poll to find out when Hankee's first meltdown happens...

John Henry is my hero, Sosock...

Hankme Steinstein has no sense of humor:

I wonder if some imaginary "Fan" will punch him in an elevator?

Hank Hankensteinbrenner has been added to "The Riviera List":

The word beginning with "F", shall precede his name.

Yes, perfect. Nothing will piss off your enemy more readily than welcoming him with open arms into a fraternity he has dissed. I love it.

The Omnipotent Q said...

Henry's playing it SO perfect, Suldog. And I read in the papers today that Boss Dimwit says he doesn't understand what all the controversy is about with what he said.

A total Clueless Putz.And the Yankees and their fans are stuck with him.
