RIP GEORGE STEINBRENNER

The AP reports that George Steinbrenner, owner of the New York Yankees, has passed away this morning from a heart attack.  He turned 80 on July 4.  He will be missed by the millions of Yankees fans and baseball fans that inhabit this earth.

From NBC Sports:

Steinbrenner has demanded results and got them running America’s most successful sports franchise. The Yankees have won seven World Series titles and 11 American League pennants since he bought the fabled club in 1973.

“Winning is the most important thing in my life, after breathing,” he once said.

Very sad day for Sports.  I’m thinking the Yankees go out and win a pennant for the Boss.

I loved that guy.

If you haven’t seen Easy Rider, then you need to get off your ass and go watch it.  Classic.  You will be missed, Dennis.

J.D. SALINGER 1919-2010

Author and noted recluse J.D. Salinger passed away today.  Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye and has spent the last 59 years telling Hollywood directors and producers to stay away from it.  It’s an amazing read.  If you haven’t read it, then go read it.   He may be gone, but The Catcher in the Rye will be around forever.  Rest in peace, J.D.
