Yankee owner George Steinbrenner died in 2010, but his appreciation for the men and women in blue who protect New York City lives on.
For 32 years, Steinbrenner’s Yankee Silver Shield Foundation has provided for the education of the children of New York City police officers, firemen and Port Authority employees who died in the line of duty, and will do so for the family of NYPD officer Rafael Ramos, gunned down by a cold-blooded killer Saturday along with his partner, Wenjian Liu.
As a Red Sox fan, this is pretty cool to see. After the Boston bombings in 2013, the Red Sox organization stepped up for the city and did so much for those that were effected. It seems as if the Yankees have been doing this for awhile. It’s unfortunate that the killer took his own life. Would have like to have seen this mother fucker tortured. That’s exactly what they should do to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Make him run the Boston Marathon and key bystanders beat the shit out of him and throw rocks at him. See if he makes it to the finish line.
Props to the Yankees.
