I don’t know how hygiene issues affect the lot of you here, so hopefully this one isn’t too gross for the morning. I did put up a broken testicle last week though, so this shouldn’t be nearly as bad. Apparently Yanks Broadcaster John Sterling was spotted in press dining room at Yankee Stadium doing a little taste testing….

YANKEES radio announcer John Sterling is being called out for foul behavior in the stadium’s press dining room. “Sterling has made a habit of walking over to the dessert table and dipping his finger into the ice cream barrel,” one stadium worker told us, adding that the play-by-play vet has also used the same tablespoon to repeatedly take samples. During the Boston series, “He wandered over to the cake and pie section, broke off a piece of a cake slice, ate it and wiped his grimy hands on the linen tablecloth, leaving the remainder of the slice for someone else to eat – which indeed happened,” our spy continued. A rep for WCBS Radio declined to comment, and a team spokesman said the Yankees “know nothing about it.”

I can’t imagine what the CBS Rep thought when he got that call (if he actually did). He probably thought it was just a prank call and moved on. Anyway, that’s downright nasty if true and having visited a few press boxes in my day…not all that surprising.
