The Boss Has Died. Long Live the Boss.

In what has been already a sad week for the Yankees organization and their fans with the passing of Bob Sheppard, the team's legendary stadium announcer, comes word that this morning, George Steinbrenner, the owner of the team, has passed away this morning from a heart attack at the age of 80 at a Tampa hospital.

Mr. Steinbrenner was always a controversial figure, and there will be many who today will pay tribute to his exploits, good and bad. But if it weren't for the fact that he actually cared about his team and their fans, he wouldn't have invested enough on them to witness the Bronx Bombers win seven World Series Championships, eleven AL pennants, and 19 playoff appearances.

Our condolences once again go out to the Steinbrenner family, the New York Yankees organization, Major League Baseball, and fans of the New York Yankees.
