A priceless scene last week was Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis, a huge Yankees fan, dropping by the clubhouse in Chicago when the team was in town to play the White Sox. Joe Torre brought Weis around to meet the players, including Hideki Matsui. “Hideki, Hideki, come over here,” said Torre. “I want you to meet someone.” Matsui came over and Torre said, “Charlie Weis. Notre Dame football coach.” Matsui had a puzzled look on his face. “Notre Dame football,” Torre repeated. “Charlie Weis.” Matsui had no idea. He politely shook Weis’s hand, bowed, and smiled.
Sorry, Charlie [The Boston Globe]
