Kernan: Bill Lee still brings opinionated heat

Bill Lee: The Unabronxbomber strikes again!

He likes what he sees in the Yankees, to a degree.

“[Mark] Teixeira is a dedicated kid, a great fielder, but I could get him out. I love [Jorge] Posada, I love [Derek] Jeter, but if their butts fell off the highway, I definitely wouldn’t slow down to pick them out of the water.”

Walking through the woods, Lee said, is his salvation. “It’s gorgeous, as long as you don’t step in any bear guts and stuff like that.”

As for the always entertaining question (Which three people through time would you invite to dinner?) Lee came up with this interesting group: “Ted Kaczynski, Mahatma Ghandi and Buckminster Fuller. Michael Moore can show up, too. I’m already Michael Moore, I started these things way before he put them down on celluloid.”

Why invite the Unabomber Kaczynski? “I’m an anti-capitalist, even though I have a company,” Lee said. “I have this socialist bent and I want to see what possessed him to go off the deep end like that so it doesn’t happen to me.”

OK, have another drink, Bill.

A conversation between Bill Lee and the remains of Teddy Ballgame's head would be equally illuminating to both parties in all respects.
