George Steinbrenner 1930-2010
Love him or hate him, you have to respect him. As a fan of the team he owned, the team he loved and the team he was willing to spend anything on, I was obviously fond of the big Bossman. And I knew a lot of people weren't, which I always found puzzling. This is the guy ANYONE would want to have as their owner. He wanted to win. Period. And I think he is one of if not THE only owner of my generation who was willing to do anything to win. And you have to respect that.
