Hank Steinbrenner: “we just have to (bleeping) win”

Jan 26, 2011, 8:23 AM EDT

Hank Steinbrenner smoking

Remember back when it seemed like Hank Steinbrenner had been given a lobotomy or had been sent off to an undisclosed location where the media couldn’t find him?  Yeah, that was a total drag.

“We will do what we have to do to win,” Steinbrenner told The Post recently in a wide-ranging interview at Steinbrenner Field. “We have the highest payroll and the reason is we are committed to our fans to win.

“We just have to (bleeping) win,” Hank added emphatically, looking out onto the field and sounding much like his father.

I’m going to guess that the edited part started with the letter F.

It may not be wonderful for the Yankees that Little Stein is being allowed to talk to reporters again, but man do I love it.  Check out Kevin Kernan’s interview. It’ll take you back to 2007 all over again.

    Poor little rich boy. Money will not buy him happiness this year.

      I may have to start selling the Hank T-Shirts again.

    Just make sure you keep complaining about your place in life, Hank. Surely you will find a sympathetic ear one of these years.

    As if by Festivus Miracle, our True Yankee leader is back, once again controlling the Universe. Lock down the women and chilkdren, we’re going for 28 now

    Good for Hank. I’d much rather be a fan of Yankees and it’s ownership (Steinbrenners) because they have a passion for winning and the willingness to put their money behind where their month is. Then be a fan of one of those lame teams with billionaire owners (without naming any) that are content to bring up the rear season after season. Content to go to the bank and deposit their revenue sharing/luxury tax money because they are to cheap to field a decent team.
    I’ll say it again, GOOD FOR HANK.

    Even as a Mets fan, I gotta say…. I like this guy! Why the heck can’t he buy the Mets? Hank versus Hal in the Battle For New York! Would love it!

    It’s cute how they retain the tense of the bleep.

    He really dresses like he’s on the cast of Miami Vice? Still?

      He does it because he CAN.
