George Steinbrenner 1930-2010
Though I was not a fan of Steinbrenner and can’t stand the Yankees, I do respect George’s passion for the game and his devotion to it. His teams have tormented my beloved Red Sox for years, and even though he spent more money than any other team, he put back a ton of the revenue he earned. Failure was not an option for George, and on some level I can respect that. Rest in peace George. My condolences go out to the Steinbrenner family and the Yankees organization.
