Seriously, since when do we say New York sucks. Get it right - Yankees Suck. I listen most mornings and was quite surprised to hear you say that on air. I hope to hear an apology soon.

Hey, Ben Johnson, you suck. Three championships in ten years; suck on that. For you NPR censors: Johnson said "Boston sucks!" On air during the recording of this "story".
