NEW YORK YANKEES
The national past time is back! Cue: burgers, dogs, beers, baseball civil war in NYC, and a daily celebration for the very heart and soul of American athletics. For those of us in NYC, it’s quite simple really: Yankees or Mets? Naturally, the majority tends to sway towards the more champion-laden (and historically rich) squad: the Yanks.
With the weather warm, the games plentiful, and the season underway, the ultimate question then becomes: Where we watching the game? As the Yanks are a national treasure of sorts—and NYC royalty to boot—there is no shortage of venues broadcasting their daily efforts. Some of the more adventurous spots even cater to the die-hards by incorporating festive “game time” drink specials into the mix. With a plethora of options threatening to overwhelm one in a tide of rapturous baseball ecstasy, a list of the top Yankee Bars has been comprised—enjoy!
The Magic-8-Ball of Hollywood relationships has finally stopped landing on 'TRY AGAIN' and has consequently ended the relationship of Cameron Diaz, 39, & Alex Rodriguez, 36. Ha.
All joking aside, the New York Yankee has confirmed that the two are definitely not together anymore. However, sources claim the break-up was civil and there were not any hard feelings between the two.
A-Rod made the following statement to People magazine:
"I have a lot of love for Cameron...We'll always be friends."
How many hours do you spend at home on facebook? How about on your iphone, trying to figure out how to tweet in less than 140 characters the mishaps of your previous night's bar hopping on the Lower East Side? (or staying at home and innocently playing board games while drinking Sprite, for the underage).
The answer? Probably many, many hours.
So why don't you sacrifice some of those hours and get outside and do some good while having fun?! Here are some upcoming volunteer opportunies that are guarenteed to lend a helping hand while providing you with solid, rewarding fun.
Actress Minka Kelly definitely has a lot to be happy about. Not only was she named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive last October, she also has a thriving career, not to mention she's dating Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.
Beauty, success, a hot man...no wonder Leighton Meester wanted Minka all to herself in The Roommate.
She has appeared on guest spots on television as well as lead roles in NBC's Friday Night Lights and will be co-starring on ABC's new nadaptation of Charlie's Angel in the fall. As for film, the star, in addition to others, was featured in (500) Days of Summer, starred in The Roommate, and appeared alongside Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in Just Go With It.
A classic print of New York Knick great Patrick Ewing scoring over Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan hangs elegantly in the entranceway of Warren 77, immediately keying visitors in to two things: one, this sports bar is not your run-of-the-mill ESPN Zone hangout and two, this place is quintessentially New York. Co-owned by Matt Ambramcyck of Smith & Mills and Employee's Only (as well as the dearly departed Beatrice Inn) and New York Ranger man-about-town, Sean Avery, Warren 77 (located on - surprise - 77 Warren Street in TriBeCa) is a small but stylish place to catch the remainder of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the upcoming Wimbledon Championships, and summer games of America's Favorite Pastime.
New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner died this morning after suffering a "massive" heart attack. He was 80 years old.
Steinbrenner retired from running the Yankees in 2006 leaving his sons Hank and Hal to run the team.
Since Steinbrenner took over the team in 1973, the Yankees took 7 World Series titles.
Steinbrenner was also famous for his "grooming policy", in which players and coaches are not allowed to sport hair past their collar, and the only acceptable facial hair is a mustache.
A rep for the Steinbrenner family said, "Funeral arrangements will be private. There will be an additional public service with details to be announced at a later date."
