    Re: Yankees' George Steinbrenner Dies at 80

    I have been a Yankee fan since the Yankee Clipper gracefully patrolled center field in Yankee Stadium....Without a doubt Mr Steinbrenner will go down in history as one of the greatest owners of all times....ML players loves to play for the Yankees and Mr Steinbrenner...He bought the Yankees for around 6 million dollars and they are now worth 1.5 billion....The money he made on his YES television network actually paid the salary of his team...........He was a class act..May he rest in peace..............

    That wasn't my point. I was just making a little humor over Steinbrenner firing Billy Martin, which he did 3 times. LOL.

    Yeah I got the joke after I hit reply. Still though I needed to insult the Yankee team, I felt dirty feeling bad for them. As a Red Sox fan that is.

    Nothing wrong with showing basic humanity my man. Hell, when that Boston pitcher took a line drive to the face that pretty much killed his career I felt awful for him, even though I detest the Sox. Sometimes the people are more important than the game. Now.......back into rivalry mode I go.

    Oh I feel bad for the family and the organization as a whole, but it still doesn't change the fact it is the Yankees. So I just don't feel bad for the players. But this is all in jest for the rivalry aspect dies for a few days when some one like a Steinbrenner dies.

    Never was much of a Yankees fan, nor a baseball fan for that matter, but Steinbrenner was quite the fixture here in Tampa, and he has been a very positive presence in our community, his legacy will continue to to live on for us here, and he will be missed, RIP George.

    I pretty much figured that. It's a fun rivalry and I'm glad that most people can see it that way.
