Blue Notes has this quote from Charles Dolan on the passing of George Steinbrenner...
"George Steinbrenner and I share Cleveland as our original home town and I remember coincidentally being across an airplane aisle from George as he flew to New York in 1973 to complete his purchase of the New York Yankees.We have watched with admiration as George went on to become one of the great New Yorkers of all time. George was an incomparable presence, not only in baseball but in all of sports and all of us at Cablevision and MSG extend our deepest sympathies to his family, his beloved Yankees and his many friends and fans everywhere."
...as a Mets fan I'm obviously not as shaken by the loss of "The Boss" as Yankee fans are. But seeing Dolan comment on his passing has me so angry that he has not been able to sniff the same success as Steinbrenner while owning a team in the same amazing city and having almost identical access to unlimited funds (this is more pre cap criticism, but Steinbrenner would have found the a way to keep the Yankees on top with a salary cap also).
...maybe Dolan should have chatted up Steinbrenner a little bit more on that flight from Cleveland.
