The New York Yankees announced yesterday that The Rocket will be returning to New York and signing a minor-league contract worth $28 million. What do rocket scientists think?
“A rocket for $28 mill? Pfft. Must be a one-stage rocket. That won’t get them very far.”
“Did you hear all that noise in the Bronx yesterday? That was the sound of the combustion of propellant, the escape of exhaust through a nozzle, and the upward thrust of the engine.”
“The fact that the Yankees claimed to ever have The Rocket to begin with just goes to show how pompous the team’s management is. Where’s their launch site? Who was the crew? I don’t buy it.”
“Let’s hope this Rocket is more like Apollo 11 than, say, Apollo 1.”
“I heard The Rocket came from Houston, so it’s gotta be the best in the business… as long as NASA didn’t work on it.”
“Even the most advanced rocket science can’t help solve the Yankees’ bullpen problems.”
“Everyone knows The Rocket belongs in Massachusetts, back where it got its start! You know, where the first liquid-fueled rocket was launched!”
