Brian Cashman is rappelling down a building again

Cashman Rappel

UPDATE: That was quick. According to the Associated Press, Bobby V has already accepted Cashman’s challenge. Next December, it’s on.

8:14 AM: Brian Cashman rappelled down a 22-story building in Stamford, Connecticut last year for that city’s “Heights and Lights” ceremony.  He’s doing it again as I speak.

One would think that this is highly dangerous business. I mean, if that city had a public safety official with any kind of stature, he’s put an end to it this instant!  Someone, tell me!  Who is Stamford’s Director of Public Safety?!

Oh, wait.  I see your game, Valentine.  I see your game.

Anyway, Cashman took the opportunity this morning to have fun with it. Before he went over the edge he — seriously — publicly challenged Stamford’s own Bobby V. to join him next year.

“You go first.”

“No,  you.”

“I insist.”


Yankees-Red Sox, baby.

    Well, everyone needs a hobby.

    If a Yankee player did this, Cashman probably would freak out. He’d have a clause put in every Yankee player’s contract prohibiting rappelling down buildings.

      Hey, .. he worked for George Steinbrenner for over 15 years and managed not to get fired, quit or develop a serious drinking habit.

      Repelling down a 22 story building, .. a mere bag of shells.

        Who said he doesn’t have a serious drinking habit?

      Seinfeld references never get old, particularly when the Yankees are involved.

    Tell the truth Calcaterra. The real caption to that photo is “Brian Cashman is rappelling down Steinbrenner’s mausoleum again”

    But can he climb UP a building? Down is easy.

    *cue Batman TV theme*



    Seriously, I’m expecting Girardi to pop up next to him and say “Holy disappearing middle relief corps!”

      Why are we walking this way?
