Bill Lee is a piker. This guy REALLY hated George Steinbrenner

If you think Bill Lee hated George Steinbrenner, get a load of this rant from Muhammed Cohen (neat name!) of the Guardian:

Steinbrenner, who died on Tuesday at age 80, was a bully and a brat, devoid of humility, class, and civility, born on third base, deluded that he’d hit a triple, and convinced he had to tell the whole world how he’d done it. Famed for his bombast and for making himself bigger than his players and team, tolerated only because he had money and power, this Yankee Doodle Dandy born on the Fourth of July paved the way for America to become a loser by his example.

It just goes on and on like that. The factual examples of Steinbrenner’s flaws are basically accurate, but Cohen’s vitriol at at those flaws seems massively out of proportion.

God love a free press (which they have even in the UK), but Cohen should probably not plan any trips to Yankee Stadium anytime soon.
