NY Yankees George Steinbrenner Early Eulogy And Thank You

Posted by TopOfTheThread on October 10, 2009

This is not meant to be morbid. Unfortunately, people give thanks to family, friends, and other people after they have passed away.

Not knowing how ill, or how much time he has left, here is a message to The Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.

* * * * * * *

George –

Thank you for purchasing The Yankees.  We do not know you personally, but , we Yankee Fans, appreciate everything you have done for us.

You took an average team in the 1970’s and brought it back to greatness.  You put your heart and money into the organization.  You brought us Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Joe Torre, and other elite, big name stars.  Of course there were free agent flops along the way but we appreciate that you were always willing to spend the money and “go for it”.

There is not much more a sports fan can ask of an owner.

Thank you George!

New York Yankee Fans
