savafan Posted December 8, 2003 Share Posted December 8, 2003 A Marine in Iraq notices a local teenager throwing spent shell casings with amazing speed and accuracy. He approaches the young man and says, "Excuse me, but my friend George Steinbrenner owns the New York Yankees. Would you like to play baseball in America?" The young man says yes. When the Marine returns home, he tells Steinbrenner about the hot prospect. In only 6 months, the teenager becomes a starter and leads the Yankees to a World Series victory. After the title-clinching game, the hero calls home. "Father," he says, "we won!" Nonplussed, his dad replies, "I don't care! We've been going thru hell, your mother hasn't been seen since this morning, your sister was attacked last night, and your brother was beaten on his way home from school!" "But Dad," the young man whines, "you can't blame me for that!" "Like HELL I can't!" the father says. "You made us move to New York!!!"
