George showed America that with enough money you can buy the worlds best baseball sports athletes and win world championships. It would be interesting to learn what organizations George Steinbrenner belonged to. Such men craving ultimate power and money tend to cluster together in very exclusive cabals.

A great frien and companion of Larry's

In his own words Larry says.

One of the finest jews in the country.

So sorry to hear that Mr. Steinbrenner is gone. He was a pariah in New York Sports and surely contributed to some of our best times as a Yankee and sports fan. Sadly there will never be another owner that put the fans and winning at the forefront like Mr. Steinbrenner.

On a different note and this one is directed to Larry King.

Larry, I hear that you will be retiring soon and there does not appear to be anyone that will take your place. The word on the street is that "Ryan Seacrest will take your place. "RYAN SEACREST"!!! Please tell me that is not true. I don't know much people but the only person that could possibly take Larry King's place is disgraced news anchor "Dominic Carter" who formerly worked at NY1. Now I know hitting your wife is a bad thing but his wife did not press charges. He is the only one with the the talent to take over for Larry King. Big shoes to fill but I know he can do it. If anyone checks the New York political circles they would confirm. Take care Larry and May God bless Mr. Steinbrenner.

To Larry King

I do not understand you invite Mel Gibson on your show, this is really sad just a few months before you leave your program.
There are so many interesting and deserving people you could invite.
What a shame. I'll make sure not to watch your program tonight and maybe not ever again.
Sorry for you

So many of the Afghanistan people have joined the Taliban to become occupation resistance fighters, it certainly should be no surprise that Afghanistan soldiers and Afghanistan police gun down American and NATO troops when they have the opportunity, plant IED's and pass attack information to other resistance fighters. The same situation existed in France when Germany occupied that country. Instead of the French Resistance fighters, in Afghanistan they are labeled as the 'Taliban'.

As a life-long New Yorker and avid Yankee fan, I am truly saddened by the loss of both George M. Steinbrenner III and Bob Sheppard in the same week. And although I never met either of them or had a personal connection to them, I feel a tremendous loss. These two individuals are Yankee legends and and should always be remembered for pioneering their trades, they both did it well. Mr. Steinbrenner may not have been the best person to work for, but he was always about WINNING! And Mr. Sheppard? Well what can you say about him? Except that he was, without a doubt, the "Voice of God". I can still remember the last time I went to a Yankee game, several years ago, when hearing Bob Sheppard's voice, I truly felt like I was in God's house. Mr. Steinbrenner and Mr. Sheppard are true originals and there will never be anyone like them. May they both rest in peace.

Oh George..YOU'RE FIRED..I am sure the infield and outfield will be a bit damp from the tears expressed for your sudden retirement. You built an empire that nearly everyone on this planet credits you for. Yes, as Larry King reminisced, you were a tough 'hot dog', at times, but you put your buns into the game and the organization that is so powerful in the world of baseball and last year was so evident of what you were so proud of...World Champions. Billy Martin probably has a stick ball game in an alternate universe set up with the others that retired who still have the love for baseball. Just watch out where Billy places home plate.

George Steinbrenner throwing huge multi-million dollar contracts to sports athlete's really in my opinion destroyed professional sports.

Huge salary's for a 3 year contract to play baseball or basketball is entirely detrimental to the game and a insult to the fans that are forced out due to the greatly inflated ticket costs.

Yes, the players were under payed and many suffered in retirement without health coverage, however the enormous swing in the other direction isn't helpful and in my opinion greatly detracts from professional baseball and basketball.

HAS ANYONE THOUGHT ABOUT MEL GIBSON HAVING A PHYSICAL PROBLEM ... IE A BRAIN TUMOR? HE WAS MARRIED TO ONE WOMAN FOR MANY YEARS ... HAD 8 CHILDREN AND IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS HE HAS BECOME A LUNATIC! THERE COULD BE SOMETHING WRONG PHYSICALLY VS BEING AN "OLDER" MAN WHO DOESN'T UNDERSTAND "AGENDA'S"!. JOHN EDWARDS IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF BEING NAIVE TO AGENDAS!

HE & BILLY MARTIN ARE NOW TOGETHER !

Mr. King,

Thank you for years of service. Your brand of professionalism is refreshing – it has always been so. You have, on occasion, demonstrated an ability to ask the tough questions and put your guests under pressure. You ARE BETTER than being remembered as the person who questioned Mel Gibson. Who cares!!! He is an actor. He acts for a living.

You have REAL events happening in front of you that you are ignoring. The NAACP, what is happening with Health care, what is going in Afghanistan and the truth in the Gulf…… and you allow your substitute to use your good name to talk about an ACTOR!!!

Be a man and be remembered as the one and only Larry King. Spend your last episodes dealing with what is going on in the real world. Let my son (who doesn’t know who Larry King is) not remember you as an American Icon – Not as a puppet who spent an entire hour talking about the non-issue of a Mel Gibson. Leave that to the lesser reporters.

Protect your name – protect your legacy…

A tribute to George Steinbrenner.

N.L. wins All Star game.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

George will be turning in his grave because of the insult.
