I guess even an old hard-core like King George gets a little worked up when a friend like Otto Graham passes. Hope you're better, George - and, if possible, could you NOT sign Vlad? Thanx.

Gary Sheffield's reaction had to be: Please God, let the contract Steinbrenner signed me to be valid, because if he goes, no one else will sign me. And, my uncle and his friend Darryl will both be unemployed.
As for George, I'm glad he's in stable condition. It just wouldn't be as much fun without him around. And, this means the backpage of the New York papers should be interesting with this story.

I can't!

How horrible of a human being am I that my biggest disappointment today was that he didn't die?

Oh come on Gugs, that's a bit much even for George. I just wish he'd get caught for tax fraud or money laundry and do some time in the hole.

I know George likes to upstage his managers but does he also have to steal the spotlight away from the dearly departed Otto.

I don't want to wish bad luck on George. First of all, it's just bad form to wish ill will on another human being just because they've done the relatively lesser sin of running a successful sports franchise. Second of all, once George is gone, it will be a lot less fun to hate the Yankees. If some corporate owner took over, they'd just be some bland powerhouse instead of a being of pure evil like Steinbrenner.



Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnít it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Does this remind anybody of the "George Steinbrenner Health Watch" segment they occasionally used to do on SNL's "Weekend Update" in the early 90's?

I remember the late Phil Hartman playing a reporter doing a liveshot: "Steinbrenner was in the bathroom a long time, raising hopes, but it turns out in the end he was just enjoying a good book."

Oh come on...of all the people in this world you'd wish death on Steinbrenner?!?! George is one of the great capitalists of our time. There are people out there far more deserving of your contempt...Bud Selig, anyone?

Here's a wish for George's good health. I love the Sox, I loathe the Yanks, but I still respect Steinbrenner. The man personally called a Red Sox/WEEI telethon and donated $10,000 in the name of late Sox announcer Ken Coleman.

Get well soon, Boss.

It's no fun to hate on a sick man.

Though I will admit to being a terrible person... I was psyched when I found out he'd fainted and a little bummed when I saw 'stable condition' on the ESPN ticker.

What's worse is that my reaction mirrored that of my mother.

Another big name and big contract, and more reason laugh when all that payroll doesn't get them in the playoffs, much less a world title.
