The Yankees apparently did some bonding yesterday down in Tampa Bay, as the team boarded a bus and went to some sort of ‘improv joint’. That gave Craig the idea to try some improv among the staff, putting Jerry, Al & Eddie on the spot and instructing them to talk with an English accent and all three failed miserably.
