The passing of a legend

Your thoughts on Yankees' Owner George Steinbrenner?

as you may or may not know, New York Yankees' Owner George M. Steinbrenner has died today at the age of 80. He was known as brash, fiery, combative, among other things. he was willing to spend, spend, spend for his beloved Yankees. Among other things, he was famous for firing Manger Billy Martin no less than four time. During his tenure as owner (1973-2010) his Yankees won 11 American League Pennants (made it to WS as AL Representative) and won 7 World Series titles, including four in the 90s alone. He had a passion for winning. In 2002, he started the YES (Yankee Entertainment and Sports) Network, giving him even more money to spend. When asked he said, "as long as I win, even if I have to spend twice what you do, I don't care. I just want to win."

Coming from a diehard Red Sox fan...Rest in Peace, George Steinbrenner. You'll get all the eggplant calzones you want now.

What are your thoughts on the passing of this titan of Baseball?
