I was shocked to see an e-mail alert sitting in my inbox this morning that George Steinbrenner had passed away early this morning. I read this while sitting @ the beach w/ my family including my brother's girlfriend who is from NY and a Yankees fan. I thought about making a smart comment, but then I decided to just bite my tongue and pay the man some respects. I've never cared for the Yankees (or any other NY team for that matter), but it's always sad to see someone leave before they were ready...even if they were 80 years old. Rest in peace George.
On a more positive note...how 'bout that Brian McCann base emptying double in the 7th inning?!
