Two news stories caught our eyes this morning (links to come when we get the time) –
- Hank Steinbrenner apologized for many of his pre-season comments. In a printed statement, he acknowledged that he was just a bit overeager, excited for the season to start, and actually realized, following the Japan jaunt, that the Sox are in fact the most popular team worldwide, a team for the Yankees to emulate, the team of this new millenium.
- More pertinent to this site specifically, the Red Sox issued a "cease and desist" order to YFSF for our use, within many posts and comments, of the term "Red Sox Nation™". As their letter states, "the website Yanksfan vs. Soxfan must immediately stop using the term RSN™, as it is wholly the property of the Boston Red Sox Baseball Club and represents a singularly valuable commodity. Improper use of this term, particularly by those with sworn allegiance to an enemy club, may significantly devalue this property.". So who is the evil empire, again?
Like we said, links to these stories when we find them.
