50 questions for the neon shirt guy at Yankee Stadium

New, 21 comments

I’m asking these publicly because you ignored me.

I just want to get to know you.

In case you missed it, some guy at Yankees stadium has apparently been wearing yellow-green neon shirts with different phrases on them every night at Yankee Stadium. He spent the first two games of the Yankees-Twins series claiming Brian Dozier was going to end his hitting streak.

I tried reaching out to this guy on Twitter, but he didn’t respond. Hence, I’m just going to post 50 of my questions for him here, on Twinkie Town. Consider this post the neon green shirt of Twinkie Town, Mr. Neon Green Shirt Yankee Stadium Man.
