George Steinbrenner Makes Awkward Appearance At Yankee Stadium For Ring Ceremony
I know, I know. Its taboo to talk about Steinbrenners health. Hell, NO ONE in the media will talk it.
Im going to guess that the Yankees, who own the YES network, told them not to show Steinbrenner on tv and probably had their goons pay a visit to the local newspapers to tell them not to write about his health.
Well, sometimes you gotta call a spade a spade. And I wouldnt doubt it George Steinbrenner has been dead for a few years and is simply being rolled around like Bernie at Weekend At Bernies.
Its ok to discuss the sad state of New Yorks “sacred saint” George Steinbrenner.
As Red Sox fans, we’ve had to hear endless jokes about Ted Williams’ head being used for batting practice, people dressing like a headless Ted Williams for Halloween, etc etc.
Ted Williams is the one untouchable in Red Sox lore.
He is the one who shall never be blasted. But that never stopped anyone from talking about his awkward and bizarre end.
But back to Steinbrenner. For all we know George Steinbrenner is a walking corpse right now.
We dont know if he had a stroke, has alzheimer's or is as dead as Bernie from Weekend At Bernies.
Hey Yankees organization, its time. Its time to talk about your fallen leader. I know its a tough conversation to have, but the veil of secrecy is wearing thin.
And if it hurts to say it out loud, just remember that you have 27 World Series Championships and Boston sucks, yadda yadda yadda.
