Here's the ad that was too hot for the Yankee front office
As Subway Squawkers readers know, friend of the blog Jane Heller wrote a most excellent book about the Yankees called "Confessions of a She-Fan." She tried to buy an ad in the Opening Day program about the book, complete with a blurb from yours truly.
But, as Page Six reported, the Yankee front office turned her book down - apparently it was too controversial. An outrage!
Anyhow, the blog It Is High! It Is Far! It Is Caught! suggested that fellow Yankee bloggers run the ad today, in a sign of solidarity with Jane. I am happy to do so. Click here to see a bigger version of the ad. I also have an interview with Jane, which I will put up tonight.
Fortunately, Jane's ad is going to get to run in USA Today's Sports Weekly commemorative edition on the Stadium. Can't wait to see the ad!
