Jan. 3, 1973: The Lamb breaks the seventh seal, the Angel blows the seventh trumpet, earthquakes ravage the globe, California sinks into the Pacific, the sun disappears from the sky, the moon runs crimson, zombies roam the earth and Steinbrenner buys the Yankees.

Happy 100th birthday, New York Yankees. A history by Jim Caple.

HAHA! Read this link! April-Sept. 1920: Ruth hits 54 home runs to shatter the single-season record and earn two dozen nicknames, including the Bambino, The Sultan of Swat, the Consigliore of Crunch, the Lieutenant Governor of Lumber, the Chief Operating Officer of Bash, the Senior Vice-President in Charge of Purchasing and Slugging Percentage, the Right Honorable Ensign of Clout and the Notary Public of Horsehide. Thanks, msacheson!

Can I be the new Lieutenant Governor of Lumber? I always wanted to be the Lieutenant Governor of something, just one heartbeat away from real responsibility but in the meanwhile, just sit back and cruise SpoFi. Suh-weet! Wait a sec, WTF is Ruth Lieutenant Governor of Lumber, SVP of this, and consigliore of that??? There's someone better to be governor, president, or godfather???
