Hank Steinbrenner made some news earlier this week when growled to the New York Times that he didn’t believe in the idea of Red Sox Nation.
“What a bunch of (expletive) that is. That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans,” he said.
The Red Sox have jabbed back. According to Boston Herald, Red Sox owner John Henry has given Hammerin’ Hank a membership in Red Sox Nation.
â€œIâ€™m a big Hank fan,â€ Henry wrote in an email. â€œJust to ensure he knows how cool Red Sox Nation is, we officially inducted him as a member of Red Sox Nation and we are sending him his membership card giving him access to an array of options including our newsletter, bumper stickers, pins, Green Monster seats and a hat personally autographed by David Ortiz.”
Now we await for Hank’s response.
