I hope he has Bob Sheppard to announce his arrival in Heaven.

When he gets there.

Poor George is probably going to have to serve some time purgatory first.

He already did that, it was called the Yankee teams of the 80s....
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. -- Author Unknown

Lot's of reports now surfacing of Steinbrenner's charitable contributions. Apparently he's donated millions over the years on the condition of anonymity, according to a White House statement mourning his passing. He's been especially generous to Tampa, his home for the past 35 years. So much so that they named a local high school after him. It wouldn't surprise me if he was buried there.

George was a brilliant businessman and owner. He even passed in the best year possible, for his heirs, since their is no inheritance tax this year. Thanks to "The Boss" for all you've done for the Yankees and baseball.

Being a Red Sox fan, it's tough to say nice things - but you can't savor championships (as in '04 and '07) unless there's a big hill to conquer and Steinbrenner kept that big hill a constant challenge.

My personal opinions of "King George" began to change when the debacle of the Montreal Expos (my NL team) started happening after the strike in '94. Seeing how the owners treated the fans and minority partners made me sick. Jeff Loria, years ago, supplanted Steinbrenner as the most despicable owner in baseball as far as I'm concerned.

Say what you will about Steinbrenner but he put the money into the team. One could say it's not HIS fault that it was in New York where the most money was available (and largely untapped in 1973).
