Friday, 9:15 a.m.

There was a time it was Ruth's town.

A little later, it was DiMaggio's. And Mantle's. And Namath's. And Messier's. And Reed's. And Jackson's. It was Taylor's. And Steinbrenner's. And Jeter's. The greats have passed it down like a torch, every one of them taking a bite from the Big Apple.

These days?

It's Marty's place.

When you say that, doesn't something twist inside?
