I don't know if any of the members of this community are NY Yankees fans, but George Steinbrenner, owner of the NY Yankees died of a massive heart attack this morning at the age of 80. Steinbrenner had been having health issues for the last few years, but was known for his great exercise habits as well as his enormous amount of determination.
He was an amazing part of the NY Yankees and made them what they are today. Here is a great article from CBS News on George Steinbrenner's life and death.
I would love to hear some of your responses to this loss of a New York legend. I hope that you all enjoy the article and look forward to any stories or thoughts on the late George Steinbrenner. - AmeliaView Thread
