“If the Yankees had an ounce of common sense, they would have at least sat down and heard his side of things. But I’ll tell you one thing, New York’s loss is Boston’s gain."

He only sang for the Yanks during the playoffs, and even then only occasionally. So no biggie. Plus it took him at least 5 minutes to belt out the song — got kind of grating after a while.

I’d rather hear Kate Smith’s short and sweet version over the loudspeaker any day.

Ronan is a gift from God. His voice makes angels weep......the yankees are the losers in this battle......then again since I was a little kid and forced to go to Yankee games I've thought they were a bunch of losers. But they had great hotdogs back in the day.

Renewed? Wait a minute. Ruth went from the Sox to the Yanks. Curse. This is Yanks to Sox. Explain how that is a renewal.

notice why Rudy is not running for office?

cause he makes more money in his capitalist ‘Giulianni Partners’ law firm...

true he is a RINO in so many ways...but he is a capitalist.

because the curse is against the red sox.

Ronan left last year before the post season...they booted him and they won.

he is not a ball player, or a goat...

You’ve confused your terms. So you don’t consider Guliani a progressive? You might note all his supporters here on FR were banned because he is a FLAMING PROGRESSIVE. Sorry. Algore is a capitalist too. Many progressives are capitalists.

Yhe Yankees handled this badly, but made a business decision to cut Tynan loose. I assume George Steinbrenner made the final call, or at least Hal.

I would suggest Kelli O'Hara be Tynan's replacement during the playoffs. She sang God Bless America at the World Series Game 6 and was incredible.

It's on YouTube.

I was at the first game of the ‘96 Series where the Yanks took a 12-1 shellacking, and clearly remember Ol’ Blue Eyes version after that game ... I was thinking: “What the ...?!?!!!”

oh we do not need the Irish singing at Yankee stadium. Please cut it out.

they won NO world series with Tynan.

get a WOP like my Gumba Sinatra who sings after every home win....or a Jew like Robert Merril who led the Yankees to many WS wins.

I have no major opinion here.I'm not a big baseball fan (was in my youth but grew out of it).I'm surprised that you don't appreciate the dilemma...Jackson=OK....Tynan=hit the road.

Wait - if you support Rudy Giuliani you get banned from this board? Doesn’t that make this kind of an echo chamber, kind of like the White House (except different)? I strongly support Giuliani - and hope he’ll change his mind and take on Gillibrand for the Senate.

They fired him for this? WTH? Nutcases.

This is what happened in the apartment building on East 54th Street in October: A realtor was showing the apartment next to Tynan’s and asked if Tynan would say hello to some prospective buyers. The realtor told Tynan the prospective buyers were “a couple of nice Jewish ladies.’’ Tynan warned the ladies he often sang in his apartment.

“How’d you like living next to a loud tenor like me?’’ Tynan asked them, jokingly.

Turned out they wouldn’t, and they didn’t buy the apartment. A short time later, another person was looking at the apartment and Tynan was putting the key in his door when a different realtor came out from next door and said they had another prospective buyer.

“Don’t worry,’’ the realtor said, “they’re not Red Sox fans.’’

“As long as they’re not those Jewish ladies,’’ Tynan replied.

You’ll have to take up your support for Guiliani with the management. I don’t make such decisions. But as a factual matter, anybody who was supporting Guiliani during the early primaries last time was shown the door (in the same way Romney supporters will be shown the door before too long).

I suggest you write to Jim Rob and convince him of your support for Rudy. LOL

Yup..they sure did. And the city of New York drove him out so he had to move and chose to move to Boston.

He was receiving death threats etc.

Ancient history is kewl. I enjoy it too. Gotta give it to the Yankees though. They employed the Obama strategy and it worked, so they have one championship in the 21st Century now.

Just like Obama...if you just keep throwing more and more money at a problem eventually something good might happen.

Um. Yeah. They don’t dump money back into the team. They just spend more and more money buying what other teams have developed. Just like Obama takes what others have produced. Tax and spend.

Relax, this is just the quality of logic one can expect from primitives who believe in curses.
