RIP, George Steinbrenner

The Yankees have announced that George Steinbrenner has passed away. He suffered a massive heart attack this morning in Tampa. He just turned 80 on the 4th of July. Flags were lowered to half-staff at Steinbrenner Field (formerly Legends Field).

Steinbrenner was rumored to be in ill-health for the past several years, so this isn't exactly a surprise. And he was a controversial and often difficult owner. But I'm glad he got to see his team win a World Series, one last time.
