Because 24 hours without something silly happening in New York isn't really a day worth remembering, we bring you this tidbit: George Steinbrenner has hired Jerry Krause as a scout. For those of you who are basketball fans, you might remember Krause was the GM who built the Chicago Bulls teams that won 6 NBA titles in the 1990s. You might also remember him as the GM who basically broke up that team, pissing off Michael Jordan by forcing Phil Jackson out as the head coach.

What you might not know is that Krause was a baseball scout before getting involved in the NBA. I can't exactly tell you what is so funny about this to me, but I feel like George and Jerry are a nearly perfect couple.
