    Funny how people differ. The guy on your previous interview had some very long answers. This guy seems to want to get rid of it asap.

    The Yankees' link with the Netherlands since 1981

    The Netherlands: 2011 World Champions baseball, beating Cuba twice (4-1 and 2-1)!!!!!

    Yeah I here you. Mickey Rivers was kind enough to do this but I would have loved to ask some follow ups to illicit more detail on some of these answers.
