This story is mostly about Joe Girardi helping an accident victim on his way home from the ballpark last night, but this is all kinds of fun:
Police were in the area conducting a driving while intoxicated checkpoint on the parkway. In fact, about 15 minutes earlier, Girardi had passed through a driving while intoxicated checkpoint on the parkway. Cristiano, who was working the checkpoint, congratulated him on his first win as a manager and waved him through. He hadn’t been the only Yankees member to pass by the checkpoint. Pitcher Andy Pettitte also passed through earlier.
“He came through with a smile,” Cristiano said.
Cristiano, a self-described huge Yankees fan, said she hadn’t expect to see either one of them again.
Of course it makes perfect sense that Girardi and Pettitte were waved through with a smile. I mean, it’s not like there was any video of them drowning in booze from less than two hours prior . . .
