Brian Cashman, the general manager of the 27-time World Series champion New York Yankees, is ready to jump off of a building. No, it's not because of the tough negotiations with Yankee captain and future Hall-of-Famer Derek Jeter, it's because he'll be rappelling down Landmark Square with Santa Claus!
I didn't believe it at first, but it's true: Cashman, a Darien resident who works for the most celebrated franchise in the history of sports, will join Santa's elves and take the plunge off of Stamford's second-tallest building this Sunday at 4:30 p.m. Heck, it even made the New York Times.
Come to think of it, does Cashman really want to put himself in such a vulnerable position right now? But Jeter, an eleven-time All-Star, probably wouldn't do anything crazy like shaking Cashman's rope and yelling "What's that Brian? Twenty-three million a year??"
Or would he...???
