Man who would be king
Most people we know would do just about anything to own the New York Yankees, or at least a major league baseball franchise. So it doesn’t make sense that Steve Swindal, Steinbrenner’s son-in-law, couldn’t even make a marriage work for his shot at owning the most valuable franchise in baseball. After 23 years of marriage, Jennifer Swindal filed for divorce because of “irreconcilable differences”.
Swindal has been a general partner since 1998. Just two years ago, Steinbrenner has said that he would be succeed him in running the team. Now the Yankees organization is in disarray and it looks like one of George’s sons will be the next king. This reads like a Shakespeare play. (Not our prose — that sucks — the drama.)
Look, we don’t care what’s wrong with the Boss’s daughter. She could be a bitch, a lunatic, not interested in sex, has a penis, whatever. We don’t care if you have a hot little piece of ass waiting for you after the divorce is final. You are the heir apparent to the Yankees, you just figure it out and make your marriage work. There are plenty of sham marriages in the world, what’s one more?
