The Yankees’ Boss remembered

“In the end, though, the only figure in the history of the Yankees who was bigger than life this way was Babe Ruth. All the good and bad. Strengths and weaknesses. Swings and misses. The old Stadium was the House That Ruth Built and this one is the House That George Built. Like he said at Carnegie Hall a long time ago: Who’d have thought it? Really? Who would have thought it?” – Mike Lupica

George Steinbrenner’s passing has produced a flood of columns and articles. Some of note are Mike Lupica’s New York Daily News piece today (quoted above), a Bob Klapisch column on the current generation of Steinbrenner Yankee leadership, an SI.com article on Yankee remembrances of The Boss,  a Jay Mariotti article at Fanhouse, and a reflection at Newsweek.
