It looks like all those calzones finally caught up with ol’ Steinbrenner.
Insensitivities aside, this is pretty big news. A true capitalist American born on the most American of days (July 4th, 1930) has died in Tampa, FL today. He showed us that money can buy you happiness as well as championships. For a stretch during the naughts The Boss’s strategy fell on hard times when he found that money unfortunately couldn’t buy you team chemistry. Now that the Steinbrenner sons are running the show the Yankees are back to their old World Series winning tricks.
I’d have to assume that Theo Epstein’s house will now become the most haunted place in America.
For those looking for inappropriateness concerning this situation, I’d like to direct you to the Comments section on Deadspin.
