Now that George Steinbrenner has passed on, what are some your memories of him? It could his first suspension as a result of pleading guilty to an illegal contribution to the Nixon campaign or his episode with Howie "the mole" Spira. Or it could his habit of throwing large sums of money at free agents or his frequent hiring and firing of managers.

Hiring & firing Billy five times. He's probably doing it again right now.

His handling of the front office as well as managers won him a comparison to Genghis Khan. His episode with Howie "The Mole" Spira earned him a comparison to Saddam Hussein. Other monikers that got put to Steinbrenner besides "the Boss," "the Kaiser," "George III," and "the Fuhrer." There were no doubt others and it wouldn't be a surprise if "Attila the Hun" was among them. Maybe there was also the fact he used the Yankees' top farm team (Columbus at the time) as his personal Siberia.

I didn't think of that one. I figured the Furher was the one getting hired and fired repeatedly and managers and general managers telling him how to run his business. Or maybe Steinbrenner and Martin are forced to take turns hiring and firing each other for eternity.
