Citi-Field Might Have a Shake Shack Stand?

December 14, 2007 3 comments

If it happens, I hope the lines are shorter. I could miss the whole game waiting for one of those burgers.

From New York Magazine:

Update, August 10: Danny Meyer conveyed the following message to us yesterday evening: “We think it’s a great idea and would love to do it. If you can help us figure out how to make that deal happen, Shack burgers are on the house!” Awesome. Since nowhere in the statement do we see the words “the report is 100 percent untrue” or “there will not be a Shake Shack at Citi Field,” we’re looking forward to some potato-bun frolics on Opening Day.

Jose: A-Rod did it too! He did! And I’m telling!

The great steroid expert, José Canseco, comes down from his Mount Juice to speak on the Mitchell Report, thanks to the Hartford Courant:

Former A’s slugger José Canseco tried to get in the news conference, but was told it was a media-only event and that he wasn’t welcome.

Canseco said he was unimpressed with the report.

“It’s a slap on the hand,” he told Fox Business Network. “The report proved nothing. It just proved what we already knew.” Canseco is mentioned 105 times in the report, more than Barry Bonds (103) or Roger Clemens (82).

“There are definitely a lot of players missing,” he said.

Prodded further, Canseco said of Alex Rodriguez: “All I can say is the Mitchell Report is incomplete. I could not believe that his name was not in the report.”

I’m sure lots of other players should have been mentioned in the report, too. These are just the guys who cavorted with a cat who got caught. And as the immortal Rick Ross says, “José Canseco just snitchin’ because he finished.”

And in other news, Jose Canseco is probably writing his book I Told You So! Now Elect Me To The Hall Of Fame.
