Yankees Fan Of The Year Michael LaPayower Gets Paid

Big Yankees Fan Michael LaPayower will have you know that the videos you giggled at won him a $2,500 shopping spree at the Steiner Sports 1977-78 Yankees Show silent auction.

There's video of his appearance here.

In it, Leo E. Karl III of Karl Chevrolet says, "The additional value beyond what's on the field is the fanbase in the stadium ... The creativity that you used for the video is, like, unbelievable. Congratulations."

To which Mr. LaPayower responds, "What inspired me, first of all, California Girls was a popular song out there, and the beginning of song, she says I know a place where the grass is really green. And, as a baseball fan, the greenest field I see is Yankees Stadium."

He also talks about how the whole experience has made it easier to decorate his "man room." Awesome.

Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. I'm off next weekend for the first and last Christmas my son won't recognize how he just has to have whatever product the bloodsucking toy-company marketing machines foist upon our children. I shall return New Year's Day, so be prepared to discuss the resolutions you've broken, and any arrests occurring, before Wake Up Deadspin o'clock on Jan. 1.
Me and mine wish you and yours a happy, safe and rewarding holiday break. You deserve it. May your Christmas tree have a star, if you're into that kind of thing.
