Open Thread: A goodbye to Bald VinnyBy
I met Vinny Milano (a.k.a. Bald Vinny) for the first time earlier this year, but I doubt he remembers me. Apparently people introduce themselves all game long. Vinny, in case you don’t know, runs a Yankees-related clothing line and also leads the Roll Call at Yankee Stadium. You all know what that is, I assume. He announced yesterday that he will not return to the bleachers next season because of married life and fatherhood, real life stuff. The Yankees never bothered to get involved with his business (either through licensing or something else), so it had to come to an end. The Roll Call was around long before Bald Vinny was and it’ll continue to be around long after he’s gone, but it’s just sad to see another piece of the Yankee Stadium experience fade away. The place just won’t sound the same in the top of the first.
Anyway, here’s tonight’s open thread. The Tigers and Rangers resume the ALCS at 8pm ET on FOX, and that’s it for sports tonight (aside from two non-local NHL games). Talk about whatever you like here, anything goes.
