This week, just two days after the Yankees lost one icon in Bob Sheppard, they lost another in George Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner always did everything big — he died the morning of the All-Star Game — and though not everyone had nice things to say, there’s no doubt the man had a lasting impact, and a funny bone to boot. (Both men will be remembered this weekend at Yankee Stadium, which hosts Old Timers’ Day tomorrow afternoon.) But what happened this week that didn’t involve eulogies?
The Knicks continued to fill out their roster.
The Mets got Lincecum-ed in their return to action.
We looked at LeBron’s ultimate mistake: making an entertainment spectacle out of a completely justifiable life choice.
And Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium in Newark took the lead in our Minor League Stadium Crawl standings.
That’s it for us. Have a nice weekend.
