If Only We Had More Owners Like George Steinbrenner

You know, say what you want about “The Boss”. That, “…he bought championships.” BIG DEAL!! He may have spent more money than any other sports owner in history. But at least he cared about winning. What’s wrong with being #1? If more owners actually cared about winning rather that taking Steinbrenner’s luxury taxes and sitting on it, maybe they can be as successful!

Think about it! If it wasn’t for George’s spending spree throughout his tenure as Yankees owner, we wouldn’t have tacked on 7 more World Series rings. (Ironically, Steinbrenner’s spending spree also was partially responsible for the salary cap in Football, Basketball and Hockey.)

All I can say is, “Thank you George Steinbrenner for making the Yankees who they are today. Thank you for caring enough to win.”

Rest in peace, Boss!
