Yankees Shut Out Singing Soprano

Since the 1930’s, Dominic Chianese, 77, (aka “Uncle Junior” on the popular HBO Sopranos show) has been a Yankees fan. His wish was to sing the Star-Spangled Banner on the Bronx field before the Stadium closes. The former tenor (not soprano) who’s performed at New York City's Carnegie Hall, apparently made the Yanks an offer they could refuse. The team said they turn down many requests each year, so this denial is not out of the ordinary. For the balance of the year, management has decided to play a recording of the anthem instead of inviting singers. In other words, Junior, FUHGEDDABOUTIT!
