Steinbrenner Still Alive And, Apparently, Vaguely Alert



Like everyone, we were beginning to wonder if George Steinbrenner was stashed away in an old-folks home somewhere, terrorizing the arts and craft room and insisting that old ladies shave their facial hair. But alas: He's still around, giving an interview with the YES Network that will air Sunday. The New York Times' Richard Sandomir has some selected quotes:

—On the way he was portrayed on Seinfeld: "It was accurate."

—What he likes to eat: "I like White Castles very much. I get them brought to the stadium for games. Krispy Kremes. I get calzones, Krispy Kremes and Dunkin' Donuts."

—His favorite television show: "'Mary Tyler Moore.' No two ways about it. The cast was so great. The people were all in the right place. When they went elsewhere, they didn't do as well."
