News Alert: George Steinbrenner, Yankees Owner, Has Died

From The NY Times:

George Steinbrenner, principal owner of the New York Yankees
since 1973, has died in Tampa, Fla., at the age of 80, the
team announced. During an often tumultuous reign, he placed
his stamp on 7 World Series championship teams, 11 pennant
winners and a sporting world powerhouse valued at perhaps
$1.6 billion. Mr. Steinbrenner had been in failing health for
the past several years and had rarely appeared in public.

If George had to go he certainly picked a good time to do it... no inheritance taxes this year. Congress is so busy spending they didn't close this loophole. Thoughts and prayers to the family..
