Unhappy George Steinbrenner, R.I.P.

NEW YORK (Reuters) George Steinbrenner, the New York Yankees owner known as "The Boss" for his tempestuous style, has died at age 80, the New York Daily News reported on its website on Tuesday, citing an unnamed, high-placed team source.

Media reports said that he suffered a massive heart attack at his home in Tampa, Florida, and was rushed to hospital.

Steinbrenner demanded results and got them running America's most successful sports franchise. The Yankees won seven World Series titles and 11 American League pennants since he bought the fabled club in 1973. He handed over daily operations of the club to his sons in recent years.

"Winning is the most important thing in my life, after breathing," he once said.

Steinbrenner's Yankees empire, which he purchased for $10 million, is now worth billions.

Steinbrenner, who turned 80 on the U.S. Independence Day holiday on July 4, was a well-known figure in popular culture, routinely pictured on the back pages of New York's tabloids wearing his familiar white turtleneck under a blue blazer and regularly skewered in the TV sitcom "Seinfeld."


Will miss the Boss...He made it great to be a winner, and fashionable to hate the Yankees, as so many do. God Bless George Steinbrenner....and also Bob Sheppard the, "Voice of God".Yankees Ball game announcer from 1951-2007.

Real tough week for the Yankees. They were a great franchise before George got there; he just put 'em out into the stratosphere. Love him or hate him, he got results. He was more than just a check book, something many Yankee haters will never understand. He made them the class organization they are today. Whether people realize it or not, this is a dark day in sports. If you didn't already have the Yankees penciled in for the Series, you can probably put that in ink now. Now they're gonna go win one for George. That's all they needed was a purpose...

Its ironic that today for some reason, I had to wear my Yankees colors today...so I got my Lou Gehrig jersey out and then later on the news broke out here in Germany...

Lets go Bronx Bombers...win # 28 for George.
