    RIP George, he single-handedly changed the world of baseball.
    "That said, I believe going forward that the world is going to be full of these nasty, difficult, unclear conflicts that are going to be energized by poverty, by stateless borders, and by the proliferation of state-like weapons in the hands of organizations that are not in and of themselves states. Typically in the past, these kinds of weapons could only be afforded by states, by countries. Now they will be used on battlefields by rebels, by rogue organizations, even by criminal gangs." - General James F. Amos, the 35th Commandant of the United States Marine Corps

          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.

                        i miss him, i think his business embodied the american spirit and i think his attitude is what this country is missing not just in sports but in everything. also even if u hated the person u should never speak ill of the dead
