    RIP George, he single-handedly changed the world of baseball.

    Things never stay the same, the game would have changed with or with out him (eventually). He just had enough gall and vision to do it before anyone else. Was it for the better or worse? Points can be made for either way IMO. Nevertheless, Rest In Peace.

    He certainly may not have been well liked by everyone, but he was one the best sports owners around.

    I love how when someone dies they get revered. If you are an asshole in life, I think you're an asshole dead. Steinbrenner iwas a douche owner surpassing even Jerry Jones.

    From The Onion:

    George Steinbrenner Dead After Firing Underperforming Heart

And if you're suited up and you look like a million bucks and you look like a success, you'll be the guy that gets tapped to sit with the chairman. And if you're wearing a pullover sweater and no necktie, you're not going to be sitting with the chairman. You'll be sitting with some other journalists who are dressed just like you are." David E.
