What does Jonathan have to say?



What Have You Done For Me Lately?

As you may know, I'm a huge Chicago White Sox fan.  I have been for years.  My friend, Larry is a huge New York Yankees fan.  He was born in New York and moved away when he was a 10-year-old, but  he moved back in his mid 20's. This morning I called him as the news came across that Yankees owner George Steinbrenner had passed away at the age of 80.  For those of you who may not know a lot about Steinbrenner, he bought the Yankees in the early 70's.  The mighty Yankees were struggling and no one was going to games.  However, Steinbrenner turned things around and the team ended up winning another six titles while he was in charge.  New York Yankee hats are EVERYWHERE.  It's safe to say the Yankees are one of the most popular teams in the world and that's mainly because of Steinbrenner's tough ways.  He would fire managers constantly and pressured them to win, win, win.  He also backed it up with cash so the general manager could get the players needed to win championships. I called Larry to get his reaction.  Here was the conversation: Me: "Hey Larry.  Did you hear the news?" Larry: "What happened?" Me: "George Steinbrenner is dead." Larry: "So what?" Yes, his first reaction was simply "so what?".  I was a little suprised, but then after a moment it seemed to make perfect sense.  New York Yankee fans are a lot like Steinbrenner.  They are very demanding and what you did yesterday doesn't mean anything today.  That's one of the reasons I think the team has 27 world championships, they don't rest on their laurels. Yankee fans are much more concerned with looking forward.  The old Yankee stadium was torn down despite 26 World Series being won there.  I think Steinbrenner would be pleased to know that one of the teams big fans wasn't interested in reliving  the past and was more concerned about the team winning championship number 28.
