SKINS GAME: Yankees manager Joe Torre’s Safe at Home Foundation is hosting a fund raiser next week in conjunction with Nivea, and in N.Y., Michael Schmidt reports the invitation to the event says, “Rub and Be Rubbed, Grip and Be Gripped, Tickle and Be Tickled.” Inside, it reads, “Touch and Be Touched,” with a picture showing a “woman in black panties lying atop a man wearing jeans.” The words and images are part of Nivea’s new ad campaign. Torre, whose foundation approved the image, said that Nivea “had made a significant contribution” to the foundation. Torre: “They support what we are trying to do” (N.Y. TIMES, 9/6).
