Peter Gammons just related a fun story. Apparently, Bill Parcells and Mark Shapiro met at Scott Pioli's wedding (who was marrying Parcells's daughter). At the time, Shapiro was farm director for the Indians. Parcells asked him how things were going. Shapiro started talking about about his players and their injuries when Parcells interrupted him and said, "Nobody gives a ####."
Then, in the receiving line, Parcells saw Shapiro again and said, "Just remember nobody gives a ####." Later, in a bathroom, Parcells ran into Shapiro again and said, "Just remember one thing and you'll be successful: nobody gives a ####."
After rebuilding the Indians and guiding them to the brink of the AL pennant, I'd say that Shapiro has given very few shits!
