Son of Georgie Thinks Red Sox Nation Is a Sham,
and USA Is Really Yankee Country

"Red Sox Nation? What a bunch of [expletive] that is." -- Hank Steinbrenner

Hank Shoots His Mouth Off, Again

"For his part, Hank betrays no worry about the competition in the American League, whether it�s the Cleveland Indians, who eliminated the Yankees last year; the Detroit Tigers, who added Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis this winter; or, above all, the Red Sox, who have not only won the World Series twice in the last four years but are arguably becoming a national phenomenon. 'Red Sox Nation?' Hank says. 'What a bunch of [expletive] that is. That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans. Go anywhere in America and you won�t see Red Sox hats and jackets, you�ll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We�re going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order.' � -- Hank Steinbrenner, New York Times, Play Magazine

Even Yankee Owner Thinks Lucchino Created This Nation. Not True.
