In Honor of the Boss: George Steinbrenner on “Seinfeld”

I know that this is a film blog, but in addition to being a film fanatic, I am also an avid sports fan. In particular, I love baseball and have followed the New York Yankees for years. Today, the baseball world was hit with the very sad news of the passing of the legendary, lion-hearted owner of the New York Yankees, Mr. George Steinbrenner. He was 80 years old. Mr. Steinbrenner purchased the team in 1973 and the Yankees have won 7 World Championships under his reign. Known for his fiery temper and passion for winning, he also had a great sense of humor, which he showed off by hosting “Saturday Night Live.” However, it was the hilarious “Seinfeld” sitcom that he is perhaps more famously associated with. Larry David always played his voice on the show, but Steinbrenner himself made a cameo appearance that was never aired on national TV. I thought today would be a good time to have a laugh and post this terrific clip.

Rest in peace, Mr. Steinbrenner. There will never be another one like you — and you will surely be missed.
