Health Watch

New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, whose meddling drew the ire of fans and players alike, once famously announced that the Yankees would never be sold during his lifetime.

Shortly thereafter "Saturday Night Live" began a "George Steinbrenner Health Watch." Alas, several minor health scares were dismissed as offering Yankees fans "no cause for optimism."

[After seeing Hideki Irabu make a mistake in an exhibition game, Steinbrenner called him "a fat toad"; Irabu soon left the team.]
