Danny Aiello...via Wikipedia:
Aiello during a interview with Sean Hannity pointed out that he is also a Conservative and was raised Roman Catholic. He has also criticized the overuse of foul language in films and television series, as well as movies and television shows featuring poor portrayals of Italian-Americans, especially The Sopranos.
Aiello is the uncle of New York Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay. (He also played Madonna’s father in the Papa
Don’t Preach video, and Sal the pizza shop owner in
Do The Right Thing)
...a Yankee fan. Said he tuned out because he thought Ortiz was going to hit a grand slam.
One of my co-workers is Italian-American and loves the Yanks for the various Italian players, etc., they’ve had over the years (so Rico Petrocelli didn’t cut it for him)
