New York Yankees Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, left, sits with Yankees principal owner and chairman George Steinbrenner during a Yankees 2010 spring training baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla.  Steinbrenner, who rebuilt the New York Yankees into a sports empire with a mix of bluster and big bucks that polarized fans all across America, died today. He had just celebrated his 80th birthday July 4. New York Times story here. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens, File)

  • Overheard in the Newsroom (Facebook page): #5213: Associate Producer: “Do you know who George Steinbrenner is?” Producer: “Of course. I watched Seinfeld.”

Question: Do you love or hate the Yankees? And/Or: Would you know who George Steinbrenner is, if you hadn’t watched “Seinfeld”?
