THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE FUNNY, GEORGE STEINBRENNER

Posted by HG on July 10, 2007

A so so takeoff on the Seinfeld Steinbrenner. If Ace would have hit The Boss with the bat, then they mighta been on to something. If nothing else, the video gives me a chance to talk about Time magazine’s Ten Most Notorious Presidential Pardons.

The list was made before Scooter Libby got a pass, in anticipation of Bush looking out for his boy. To my surprise, George Steinbrenner came in at #7. I had no idea George was rollin like that.

Indicted on 14 criminal counts on April 5, 1974, the owner of the New York Yankees plead guilty to obstruction of justice and conspiring to make illegal contributions to President Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign.

Steinbrenner got let off the hook by Ronald Reagan in ’89, proving that he really is a Boss. Ah, 1989.. One year after the Yankees traded Jay Buhner.
