Today's links are still waiting for Larry David's take ...
Alex Belth has one of the better overviews you'll find. (Oh, and for those of you who weren't there, the word Steinbrenner used to describe Hideki Irabu -- the word that nobody will publish because its other pronunciation has a profane meaning -- rhymes with fussy).
As I mentioned yesterday, I once wrote a short biography of Steinbrenner, using only quotes. What I didn't mention is that the thing was never published, and won't be; last I knew, the only existing copy was on a floppy disk, packed off to a recycling center. Anyway, it wasn't any great loss, though I still think the concept is worthwhile. And in a similar vein, Craig has collected a short but representative list of quotes from the Boss, himself.
Keith Olbermann met Steinbrenner when Olbermann was 14, interviewed him for 30 years, and always got along with him.
A fair number of Steinbrenner's obituarists have mentioned his charitable acts, and here's a good example from a former batboy.
If anyone has cause to remember Steinbrenner less than fondly, it's Dave Winfield. Actually, a lot of people have cause to remember Steinbrenner less than fondly, and I suspect that many of them still do. But Winfield racks up some karma points for being so magnanimous.
And perhaps, 24 hours later, we should give the final words to our most respected journalistic voice.
