Girardi named March of Dimes Sportsman of the Year


While CC Sabathia is up for SI’s Sportsman of the Year award, his manager took home some honors of his own. The March of Dimes named Joe Girardi their Sportsman of the Year (Venus Williams was Sportwoman) because of his achievements with the Yankees in 2009, and will honor him 26th annual March of Dimes luncheon on December 2nd. The luncheon is at the Waldorf Astoria (walking distance from Grand Central), and if you want to attend, give the MoD a call at 212-353-1143, or email jcarlo (at) marchofdimes (dot) com.

The MoD is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, and works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Congrats to Girardi.

    The luncheon is at the Waldorf Astoria…

    King Jaffe Joffer: Semmi, you have disgraced yourself, and you must be punished. You will confine yourself to our royal suite at the Waldorf-Astoria.
    [to Oha]
    And see that he puts on some decent attire.
    [to the rose bearers]
    And I want you to bathe him thoroughly.
    Semmi: Oh, THANK YOU, Your Majesty!

      Holy shit, Tommie, busting out the Coming to America quotes? I am damnably impressed.

    “You say I’m premature, I just call it ecstasy.” (Inappropriate?)

      Probably, yeah. But, that’s your thing, it’s what you do.
