Derek’s Muse? (or, There’s Something About Harry)

NPR’s Amy Ettings reports today that Derek’s slide may have been broken thanks to the guidance of one Harry Steinkopf, 67-year-old resident of the Bristol Assisted Living Community in Lynbrook, Long Island. Harry, a member of the Bristol retirees softball team (!) posted Derek a letter suggesting he work out his swng in front of a mirror. Genius! Who needs Donnie?!

PS: Why do we suspect that Mr. Steinkopf = Ms. Ettings’ grandpa?

  • Did you hear the YES broadcasters last night talk about Zito’s weird habits, and that when travelling he always brings along a full length mirror to watch himself practice his wind-up. Also brings stuffed animals. Bizarre.

  • Stuffed animals? What’s wrong with stuffed animals? Don’t pick on Barry just because he can’t sleep in unfamiliar hotels without “Mr. K”, his special cuddly cocker spaniel toy!
