Yankees George Steinbrenner is Dead




George Steinbrenner, a towering and intimidating figure who dominated the New York sports scene for 35 years, winning 11 American League pennants and seven world championships as owner of the Yankees, died Tuesday morning in Tampa after suffering a massive heart attack. He was 80.

"The Boss" - as he was so aptly named by his longtime antagonist, Daily News columnist Mike Lupica - died at around 6:30 a.m., barely a week after his Fourth of July birthday.

He had been suffering from failing health, the result of a series of strokes, for the past few years.

A family friend of my dad was his room mate at Culver Military Academy when they were young.

He said that what everyone saw of him was the way he was even when he was young.

They were room mates for the entire four years,but according to the family friend,they never were close friends.

As a long time season ticket holder I am saddened to see the driving force behind the Yankees pass away. He gave us many things to cheer about over his tenure as owner, none more then the 7 World Series Championships.

We will miss you Boss and hope that your family carries on the proud tradition.
