    RIP to The Boss. As much as I hate the Yankees it's more out of jealousy. He was on of the best ever pro sports team owners.

    I have to disagree, RIP.. Although I have to speak ill of the dead here, I'm not saying any of this out of jealousy.. I just think it's kinda ridiculous to say he was one of the best pro sports owners ever. I skimmed through the article, but I don't think any talent was involved in turning the Yankees around, just a whole lot of money.

    He was rich, the only good thing about him. It doesn't take a genius to pick up all the top free agents when every guy you're offering a $100m contract. Kudos to him for being able to do that.

    Anddd I do agree that Jay-Z made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can. Thank you.
