The Yankees are introducing an official fragrance

OK, this is a fun one.

According to Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York, the Yankees will introduce two “official fragrances” on Tuesday, February 21 at a cocktail reception in Manhattan. They’ll be called “New York Yankees” and “New York Yankees For Her.”

If the rumors are true, this must be excellent news for Derek Jeter, as I’d imagine he is always looking for ways to enhance his gift basket experience. Sure, there were a lot of ways I could have gone with this one, but it’s pretty hard to pass up an opportunity to talk about gift baskets again. Forgive me.

Coincidentally, the Mets are also planning to introduce an official fragrance later this month. Each bottle costs $20 million and is filled with the tears of Mr. Met.

    sure beats having to sign all those baseballs!

    Ny mets cologne- smells like burritos and failure.

      And Flushing Bay at low tide.

    Is it true the aroma reminds the user of arod’s package. Lots of red sox fans looking to make this their Christmas gift 2012 style?

    Finally someone has decided to put the smell of tobacco juice and sweat in the same bottle!

    That last paragraph is so snarky and mean-spirited towards the Mets, it could have been written by Craig Calcaterra.

    Well done, D.J.

    Cashman tested the fragrance out, and apparently it works, crazy ugly broads can’t keep their hands off!

    what a disgrace, Babe Ruth is even embarrassed!

    I heard they were gonna name it Guido. I think that about describes the way it smells too.

    Quintessential eau de toilette. Made with genuine East River water.

    • cur68 - Feb 7, 2012 at 12:41 AM

      …and should be called eau du Jeter’s balls.

    Next in the Yankee’s line, due for a sizzling mid-summer release,
    are the Don Mattingly / Dale Berra line of “Golden Shower Gel”………

    • cur68 - Feb 7, 2012 at 12:42 AM

      With genuine Jay Buhner aroma.

  12. randygnyc - Feb 7, 2012 at 12:52 AM

    It’ll smell like brand new currency. Personally, I love the smell of money.

  13. yankeesgameday - Feb 7, 2012 at 12:58 AM

    Worst idea ever.

    I almost feel like this should result in an 86 year curse of futility starting the day they launch thus product line. Eau de dumb-ass.

  14. lookatthefarside - Feb 7, 2012 at 1:56 AM

    And both fragrances will smell like feces.

    Inspired by the home run feature at their new ballpark, the Miami Marlins are producing a perfume which smells like Elton John making love to a porpoise on top of Liberace’s piano.

    At least they decided not to go with Derek Jeter’s bare pelt, complete with jeter on a bear pelt. Coming soon though.

  17. buffalomafia - Feb 7, 2012 at 4:39 AM

    Probably smells like ass! Lol!

  18. vincentbojackson - Feb 7, 2012 at 8:24 AM

    Pretty sure the fragrance will be over-hyped, over-priced, and fall short of expectations. Just like the Yankees.

  19. mattjg - Feb 7, 2012 at 8:39 AM

    I can’t wait for the billboards: “New York Yankees: For when Axe just isn’t douchey enough.”

  20. stex52 - Feb 7, 2012 at 8:41 AM

    Get a grip, men! Baseball perfume? What’s next? New travel uniforms with garter belts? Oh yeah, never mind……….

  21. brewcrewbombers - Feb 7, 2012 at 10:39 AM

    Fragrance my ass….just a way to keep their fan’s minds off the fact that they havent made the ALCS in the past two years even though they keep spending more money. Way to Go. Steinbrenners Stench…
