Missing George

Yes, I will miss George Steinbrenner. He was obnoxious, self-important, obsessive, and bizarre. He was probably a jackass, too. But he knew what he wanted--a championship ballclub. And that's what I want. So with George gone, who shall become my new Straw Man? Who shall I point to and say "Giants Ownership--do this if you want to bring home a ring?" Which organization will be my new role model? I'm lost, I tell you, lost!

Giants Ownership: stop equating "pretty good" with success. Start demanding a world championship and start doing what it takes to get one.

Mr. Steinbrenner: rest in peace.


"If we're gonna win, the players gotta play better,
the coaches gotta coach better, the manager gotta manage better,
and the owners gotta own better."
- Brewers first baseman George Scott, to the club chairman
(from Cot's Contracts)

The man really tried everything he could to win. Sometimes, the moves were boneheaded, however, when he actually kept the farm intact good things happened. RIP.

Also, can't believe it. The National League won! But no Timmeh <8(

Just like '84, the NL wins 3-1 and a catcher is MVP. Only 18 total Ks this time.
I only watched the first 2 innings, then I went to see "Spamalot." Much more fun.
