So it Seems… The George Steinbrenner Quote that Hal Steinbrenner Has Finally Lived Up To

Good morning everyone, I hope everyone is doing well this morning. Boy, how important is that Game Two debacle by Joe Girardi right now? Anyway, another conversation for another blog post I guess. I still haven’t been able to muster up the words to describe my feelings and thoughts on that game, I am that disgusted by it all but anyway I digress.

Hal Steinbrenner has caught a lot of flak within the organization and by the fans for the way he has run the New York Yankees but I will say one thing, there is one quote that Hal has lived up to. That quote came from his late father, George Steinbrenner, and former owner of the Yankees. George knew that this was a game but it was always a business and in business you have to spend money to make money. George spent a lot of it and George made a lot of it all while being loved by his fans and hated (the ultimate sign of respect) by his colleagues. It is this one quote that has always stood out to me though, and it makes me happy that Hal and Brian Cashman have finally figured it out.

Baseball is not just a sport anymore; we are a business. We are show business. To compete for the entertainment dollar, particularly in New York, you have to have more than nine guys playing baseball; you have to have an attraction. And I have tried to do the best job I possibly can to give my fans an attraction.”
George Steinbrenner, New York Yankees

Well done, Hal. Well done, Cashman. Well done, indeed.

Speaking of well done, I did damn well when I found you and I have done damn well, in my humble opinion, every day since because I loves you. HEY YOU. Good morning. Have a great day everyone.
