Bobby Valentine owns Stamford, Connecticut

No one may want Bobby Valentine to manage their team, but someone loves him: his hometown of Stamford, Connecticut. Earlier this week he was named Stamford’s “Citizen of the Year.” Today he was named the city’s Director of Public Safety.

There was probably a need for a new Director of Public Safety, actually: the last guy couldn’t even keep mild-mannered executives from scaling downtown buildings in broad daylight.  And besides, having Valentine in charge of public safety is awesome because he also owns that sports bar in Stamford.  Which means you can probably get totally out of control there and not have to worry about the cops barging in.

At least if Bobby isn’t mad at you.

    I hope Scrooge McLoria doesn’t have a home up north and rescind the offer.

    He smiled and the guy marking off the name of the public safety director was blinded and checked the wrong box.

      Truth be told, I had to go back and add the L to public.

        He’d be in charge of Merkin regulation then?

        Especially of the fire variety

    Are you sure they meant to give it to Bobby and not his brother?

      I tried to get the image put in but apparently it doesn’t let you do that. The picture should have been this one: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_zI2YCpvGIog/StZy9mzR1YI/AAAAAAAAEgE/9p9Zwj9kn1w/s400/bobby-valentine.jpg
