What Do The Yankees Smell Like?
On February 21, you will have your chance. That's the day the team will introduce two "official fragrances" called, creatively enough: "New York Yankees" and "New York Yankees for Her".
(Note the overt sexism where what should be called "New York Yankees For Him" is simply "New York Yankees".)
Mike Silva, New York Baseball Digest: "Yes, every team has non-baseball related products. You have checkers, chess, teddy bears, etc. with the team logo. None of the 29 other teams believe they are bigger than the game where they create a fragrance and have a bourgeois party to announce it. ... What's next? Randy Levine on the catwalk modeling underwear?"
This reminds me one of the greatest quotes in Red Sox history. It's April 2005 and the Red Sox are opening the season at Yankee Stadium II. Doug Mirabelli walks into the visitors clubhouse and remarks: "It still smells like champagne in here."
