What Do the Pope and Red Sox Nation Have in Common?

Hank Steinbrenner (pictured) doesn't care for either one.

Actually, Hankenstein has told the Pope's people that he doesn't want the Popemobile driven on the grass at Yankee Stadium when Pope Benedict XVI celebrates Mass there on Sunday afternoon. It's understandable that the club doesn't want any automobiles on the grass while the Pope is there. More about it from AOL Sports here.

I wrote this post just because I wanted to write that headline. (And of course, put up yet another photo of the true Hank Steinbrenner.)

bad Mojo....

anyway maybe the Yankees could "borrow" the PopeMobile for pitching changes, etc.

We know how lovely Yankee fans are.

I always thought the teams that had cars drive the pitchers into the games was pretty cool. The Mets had carts shaped like giant baseballs that I thought must have been fun to drive.

The Shea Bullpen Carts were cool:

Hank is a CONSUMATE Jackarse;

& @ Fenway tomorrow, I'll be watching part of the Mass on MobiTV on my Phone

When Mike Flanagan was playing, The Yankees had their golf cart.

He joked that when you get in it, someone tells you to lock the doors.
