I am not a Yankee fan in the least, but baseball was my first love. I have known the name George Steinbrenner since I was a young one. Regardless of all the controversy and chaos that has surrounded him and his "Evil Empire", Steinbrenner will definitely be missed.

I will always remember Larry David impersonating him on Seinfeld. RIP Mr. Steinbrenner.

He did very well having to survive in that NY media zoo. He knew what he wanted and in many ways helped to shape sports media and marketing as we know it. He was/is a legend. R.I.P. The Yanks win another one, and dedicate it to him.

Re: Yankees owner George Steinbrenner dead...

IMO, the most dedicated owner, to his team, and also one of the smartest, taking every dime of revenue, and re-investing it, right back into the team itself. Built championship mentallity, in every fan, of the Yankees... Rest in Peace George...
