the madness of king george
My 16 year old son, Otis -- the intellectual sports savant who wants to be a sports journalist and has been a DIE HARD Yankees fan since he was a toddler and first fell in love with the history and mythology of baseball -- is in the other room, still slumbering peacefully. He has not yet awoken to The News. I've decided to give him one last night of dreams, miracles, massacres, greed, triumph, scandal, and legend before he awakens to the reality of a world without Georgie Steinbrenner. Sleep well, my beautiful, beautiful boy -- and dream.
