Eating with Aaron was New York Lizards owner Andrew Murstein.
where is the awkward part?
The awkward part was Aaron telling his dinner party he was hungry as a horse when Rodriguez was approaching.
Isn't this story premised on the fact that A-Rod and Aaron had not met before this incident? I kind of find that hard to believe.
Indeed. Here's proof that they've met before.
Hank, A-Rod, Ken Griffey Jr, and...Mark Wahlberg?
Murstein, an avid sports fan, can frequently be seen in the front row at Madison Square Garden and the New York Yankees, often with other bold faced names.
at least when Lizards fans watch their team battle Ohio, they can rage against the Machine, so there's that
I'm trying to imagine the headlines in the newspaper the next day:
"Reptiles slither to late win."
"Saurians swoon to 9th straight loss."
"Ectotherms cool off Cannons."
Andrew Murstein is the founder, president and largest shareholder of the Medallion Financial Corporation, NASDAQ: Taxi.
Medallion is a publicly traded investment company . In mid 2012 Murstein became the majority owner of the Lizards as Medallion Financial was one of several parties involved in the purchase of the professional lacrosse team.Murstein was born in Roslyn, N.Y. His grandfather, Leon Murstein, became a New York cab driver and purchased one of the first New York taxi medallions, issued in 1937. Andrew's introduction into the taxicab industry came early. His father, employed by his grandfather in his Queens-based taxi business, took a young Andrew to the taxi garage, where he was assigned the task of collecting rentals for the use of the medallions from the drivers at the end of their shifts.
Andrew's family eventually owned more than 500 medallions and made the decision to sell some of them in the 1970s. They were unable to find a bank willing to provide the financing. This was the trigger that provoked them to get involved in the lending business. In 1979, the Mursteins founded a family-owned company called Medallion Funding Corp. Medallion has since lent over $3 billion to the taxi industry.
Medallions board of directors include former governor Mario Cuomo and also Hank Aaron.
(Perhaps the purplish hue his lips have acquired is a consequence of his Centaurian transformation?)
I still have no idea what sport the lizards play.
I am guessing jai alai.
