By George! Big Stein Turns 75


We would be remiss—very remiss—not to extend our Very Best Wishes to The Boss on this, his 75th birthday. And we certainly recommend The Post’s special Steinbrenner pullout section, “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” with full page ads from The Donald, Regis (Hold it in, Reeg!), Howard Rubinstein, and David Boies, among others. Insight, you want? The Post provides, big time.

George’s five greatest Americans: Reagan, Lincoln, Washington, Kissinger, Salk
Favorite actress: Shirley Maclaine
Keys to success: “Taking what you have in your possession and making the most of it.” (Hear that, Sheff?)

Elsewhere, some choice greetings from the Yankilatti:

Sheppard: “Happy Birthday”
Nettles: “May you never lose your desire to win, nor your resources to pay for it.”
Reggie: “Hope you make it another 25.”
Yogi: “Your future’s not what it used to be.”
Rizzuto: “Over the years he’s gotten us a nice room at Spring Training.”

Many happy returns, of course.

  • Kissinger? The guy thinks a megalomaniacal war criminal is one of the greatest 5 Americans? I mean, what does George think of the B.T.K. killer? Top 10er?
    I am embarrassed for you, YF, that you can’t muster any criticism at all of this azwipay.
