Before yesterday's Yankee home opener, George Steinbrenner cried during an inverview with CBS 2. The Bleacher Creatures chanted, "Thank you, George," which brought the 73 year old majority owner to tears. The Boss also said that he was "happier than he's ever been" and that the reason he goes out to sign the best players is that "the desire to win was instilled in me by the people, like those people out there." Steinbrenner cried the other day while talking to former Yankee Roger Clemens. Gothamist wonders what's Georgey-poo's next move will be.

The Yankees won the game won the game, 3-1 (box score), with an impressive debut by Javier Vazquez. Vazquez went 8 innings, gave up 1 run and struck out 5. The Times reports that, "According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Vazquez was the first starter in team history to make his Yankee debut in a Yankee Stadium home opener." Can Elias also look into the last time George cried twice in two days?
