THE YANKEES - RABBITOHS EXCHANGE
The idea was simple. The day I wrote THE YANKEES & THE RABBITOHS SIDE BY SIDE back on March 30th, I decided to make it a quest to find myself a Rabbitohs hat and wear it in America. After all, the Rabbitohs were an Australian Football club and Joey and Charles Moses, read HERE, made me a fan.
Well, I searched high and low for the hat above. I could not find it on Amazon, on any Sports merchandise site... I couldn't even find it in New York City or Modells, or any place. I had nothing. I was annoyed.
Then I thought for a moment. I remember when I wrote that piece about Charles Moses seeing the Yankee and Rabbitohs shirts in the window, the store was in Sydney. It was a sports store called Mick Simmons Sport. I started looking there, and then, next thing I knew I was finding anything Rabbitohs I wanted! That's when I got the message from Joey. He saw the BYB Rabbitohs piece. "Great work. You're a Legend."
I love that he calls me "a Legend." I'm not gonna lie, I get a kick out of it. Joey's a great dude and like a brother to me. We speak all the time and I like that he appreciates what we do here at BYB. I wrote him back on Facebook about my hat search... I hit a snag:
Hmmm. "Leave it with me." What was this dude up to?
A few weeks later, that hat you see in the header was in my mailbox. Airmail... from Australia. Not just 1... 2. Needless to say, my wife and I wear Rabbitohs proud all over town these days. It's awesome and the hate fits and looks terrific!
In return, I packaged up something special. A Bleeding Yankee Blue shirt, and a #BYB tank for his squeeze. In fairness to Joey, he insisted... no... HE DEMANDED I not send him a thing. But that's not in my nature.

And so, now we're even because that's my brother over there, he took care of me. I don't forget stuff like that. It's what class is.
So that's my story about the Rabbitohs hat and a guy who I call a good friend. I'm thinking about taking a vacation to Sydney, Australia. I think it would be pretty cool to visit. Plus, I have my second family out there... Charles and Joey Moses and their great family.
