    Suffered a massive heart attack, he was 80.

    I hope the Yankees go all the way, now.

    R.I.P.

    Heres the AP post:
    Wont ever be another like him. I salute you George. I may have hated his guts, being a Red Sox fan, but I respected him as worth adversary. The stadium wont be the same with him glaring down at the Yankees. :(  May he rest in peace

    Hated the Yankees with a passion.
    But he was truly unique in his own way. Just like the Owner of the Cowboys...

    Jerry Jones isnt worthy enough to hold Steinbrenners jock. George may have been a bastard, but he did it with class.

    Yeah, I may not have much liked Steinbrenner being a Mariner guy, but the guy did what he did really well.

    Shame it's the morning of the All-Star game.

    As far as the team goes though, George left the team's running to his sons a few years ago. So they should be fine from that standpoint at least. Certainly a sad day in New York though.

    At least George put everything into winning. I wish the A's owner were like that.

    As a Yankee fan, I've always enjoyed the way he ran the team. Rest in Peace George, you will be missed.


    Oh another note, I hope Larry David does his Steinbrenner impersonation one more time.

    He bought the Yankees in 1973 at the cost of $8 to $10 million.

    Today they said the team is worth $1 billion.

    if i actually believed that the moon landing was a Desilu production, i would say that the timing of his passing was very fascinating.

    instead, i'd just say it seems fitting he went out like an All-Star and on the day baseball celebrates the giants of the league.

    it's like Adams and Jefferson both passing away on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence; it guarantees their legacy won't be forgotten.
    and George's work won't be, either.

    sadly it is a perfect way to end his story.
    Rest in Peace, George.

    I may be a Mets fan, but I respect an owner like Steinbrenner. The stupid Wilpons can't even measure up when it comes to commitment to winning. RIP George.
