God Save THE BOSS!

WE MEAN IT, MAN!

“I remember walking into Paley’s office and being scared stiff,” Steinbrenner said. “I was sure he was gonna tell me he wasn’t gonna sell or that I didn’t have enough. As it was, he said to me: ‘What are you planning on paying me with, Chinese money?’ to which I said: ‘No sir, I’ve got cash. Good old-fashioned American cash.’

“I remember,” said Steinbrenner, “when I told my father I had bought the Yankees, he said to me: ‘You’re better off sticking to shipbuilding.'”

Which, as I reminded Steinbrenner, was precisely what he said he planned to do at the press conference introducing himself and his partners.

“What can I say?” he said with a laugh. “I suppose I meant it at the time, but once I got into it, I was determined to restore the Yankees to their glory. We knew what we’d bought.”

Enough nostalgia…give us some Darth Boss George!

“I’ve been with you for the whole ride, George,” I said, “but I didn’t get out of it what you did.”

“I know that,” he snapped. “But you, I could have done without!”

THAT’S MY BOY!
