• Gotta Love Those Crazy Hazy Days

    From the Yankees site -

    Seven rookies took part in this year’s festivities, as they returned from the field to find their regular clothes gone, replaced by a costume to wear on the trip to Toronto.

    In recent years, the costumes have ranged from Hooters girls (Nick Johnson and Alfonso Soriano) to pimps (Jose Contreras and Hideki Matsui) to Elvis Presley (Andy Phillips and Scott Proctor). Last year, Chien-Ming Wang and Robinson Cano were outfitted in cheerleader uniforms, complete with their names on the back of the shirt.

    This year’s winner? George Steinbrenner.

    The seven players — Beam, Melky Cabrera, Jose Veras, Sean Henn, Andy Cannizaro, Jeff Karstens and Kevin Thompson — were dressed in blue blazers, white turtleneck shirts and gray dress slacks. The outfits were topped off by gray-haired wigs and aviator sunglasses.

    Last year was funny.

    If I can find any pictures from this year, I will post them.

      Weird that no pictures have surfaced yet of this. Maybe George stopped them from being released.

      But while looking for the hazing pictures, I did find this “Matsui as pimp” action figure.
