It Don’t Mean Diddly

George King interviews Hank in The Post.

"The most important thing to remember is this: If you didn’t get it from me or my brother [Hal], it doesn’t mean [anything]. I don’t care about some piss-ant employee. If you don’t get it from me or Hal, it’s meaningless."

Must be simultaneously exalting and humbling to put on a CV —

Employer: New York Yankees, the most prestigious franchise in the history of professional sports
Position: pissant

There are a few other gems from Hank in the article, just in case you missed H-Bomb.

  • I like this one: “I said that if you treat me fair and honest, I would treat you fair and honest,” Steinbrenner said. “Those days are over.”
    Don’t really know what it means, but it is wonderful in its ambiguity.

  • I’m not sure even Freud would have an explanation for this guys antics. Somewhere Hal is sighing and rolling his eyes again.
