Farewell, Mr. Boone
The man they call Aaron "Fuckin" Boone all over New England retired from pro baseball this week. After a brief comeback with the Houston Astros last year, following open-heart surgery, the one-time Yankees 3B officially called it quits on Tuesday. He will join ESPN as a baseball analyst.
Just wanted to say thank you, Aaron Boone, for giving us a classic Yankee moment. (Which NEVER gets old, btw.) We won't ever forget you in the Bronx and hope to see you there very soon, and in pinstripes once again, for Old Timer's Day. Enjoy your retirement, sir.
