Millar Talks About '03 Steinbrenner 'Bird Flip' On David Ortiz's Tribune Podcast

On the new Player's Tribune podcast about David Ortiz, former Red Sox hero Kevin Millar tells a story that demonstrates what a total jerk Yankee Owner George Steinbrenner was. After Boston's gut-wrenching Game 7 ALCS loss in 2003 (When Aaron "F'. Boone went yard on Tim Wakefield), Steinbrenner gave the "double bird-flip" to Red Sox players on the team bus. If you needed any more evidence that Steinbrenner was a classless buffoon, now you have it. Millar first recounted this story back in a 2015 interview with Dan Patrick. Of course, the Steinbrenner progeny (TweedleDumb and TweedleDumber) still run the Pinstriped Poser franchise. The apples haven't fallen far.
