IF HOMER BUSH AGREES, THEN BYB NAILED IT!

I just wanted to give a shout out and a "Thank you" to Former Yankee Homer Bush, who, on Facebook chimed in on the Kevin Youkilis charade and Bleeding Yankee Blue's piece this morning.  We had 2 very different opinions on Kevin Youkilis and his "I'll always be a Red Sock" comments the other day.  Be sure to read:

YOUKILIS & THE NEW YORK MEDIA: PART 1

HEY YOUK, SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND PLAY BALL!

Both pieces got a wide reaction.  Many could care less, some were pissed at Youk. Some understood him and thought the whole thing was overhyped.  Many commented and then I saw Homer's comment after he apparently read HEY YOUK, SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND PLAY BALL on Facebook. He wrote simply:

Now, you wonder... Why is this important? It's important because this is a former Yankee, a former major leaguer.  This is from a guy that walked through a pro level clubhouse looking to better his game and contribute to the team every day.   And, most importantly, this is a guy that understood what being a Yankee meant.  
That's why we still see him on Old Timers Day and applaud him. 

Thanks Homer. Thanks for letting me wake up to that, it put things in perspective.

Please comment, we have DISQUS, it's easier than ever. Let me know what you think and follow me on Twitter @BleednYankeeBlu and join the group Bleeding Yankee Blue on Facebook, just type it in.
