Banner Week for New York (Yankees)

While other Gotham-area teams strive to bring honor and glory to the Big Apple, the NY YANKEES are content to embarrass and humiliate all their fans. Here's just a few of the things they're doing to drag the fine citizens of New York down into the mud despite the Mets and Giants best efforts.

*Despite all they have in common, the fact that Derek Jeter is a tax cheat didn't get near the attention that Wesley Snipes' case did. But he is. Derek Jeter is a tax cheat. Now that the case is settled, expect the media to pop out of his ass where they live to sweep this scandal under the rug. Stealing money from New Yorkers, now that's classy!

*Rocket Roidger Clemens spent the day lying giving a sworn deposition in front of Congress. Rocket says: "It was great to be able to tell them what I've been saying all along -- that I've never used steroids or growth hormone." Sounds great. Clemens' private testimony to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform came one day after his Yankees teammate and workout partner, Andy Pettitte, gave a deposition to committee staff for 2½ hours.

*Meanwhile, not to be outdone, historical Spankers figures wanted their time in the sun. The haggard 45-year-old Kim Mattingly, estranged wife of not-as-good-as-Keith-Hernandez-Don Mattingly, was arrested and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct after police say she refused to leave his property in Indiana where he is hiding after wasting four years of his life waiting to take over for Joe Torre only to be screwed by Hankerchief Steinbrenner and company. She says he stole her phone and what reason do we have to disbelieve her?
