Letter to the Editor: Rage, rage, rage against the storm

The New York Post

Dear Editor

I have never been more embarrassed in my life to be a Yankees fan. I can only hope the Steinbrenners and Randy Levine issue a public apology to the fans, because we're owed one. We're also owed a new manager, new hitting coach (goodbye Kevin Long!), and a large chunk of new players. This postseason has been a complete joke and has embarrassed this city. George Steinbrenner is probably rolling over in his grave.

If crazy King George is rolling in his grave, that would make the recent postseason abomination worthwhile. This is one Yankee fan who believes we should all be dancing on his grave for 35 years of mismanagement driven by hubris.
The only championships won during his ownership occurred when the team was truly managed by someone else: Gabe Paul in the 1970s and Gene Michael in the 1990s.
Steinbrenner was a buffoon, and that's about the nicest thing I can say about him.

Hey, hold on, Tom. He was a buffoon AND an egocentric asshole.

Credit where it's due, after all.
