Baseball’s 800 pound gorilla has left the room. George Steinbrenner fired his physical being today at the age of 80, after receiving the pink slip, his body responded with a massive heart attack. Most of my opinions involving “The Boss” are very negative, I partially blame him for my total and complete lack of interest in baseball, he had no right to tear down a cathedral and rebuild it next door with 100% increases in ticket prices, among many other things I find deplorable. There is no denying he did things his 1000% his way, and his way ended up being pretty darn effective (eventually). If I had the power and money that he had, I’d have probably done it his way too.
So here’s to you Georgie boy, hopefully there are plenty of people to sack in the afterlife.
