Young: Reggie’s job is to sell N.Y. on Yankee Stadium - NY Daily News

“The greatest thing I had going for me was New York,” said George Steinbrenner. “Bronfman can have his liquor in Montreal. Kroc can have his hamburgers in San Diego.”

Ray Krock, the McDonald’s man, offered a million more than Steinbrenner did. Charles Bronfman, the Seagram’s man, offered two million more, but if there’s one place on the North American continent that has worse weather than New York, it’s Montreal.

George Steinbrenner is smart. He took Reggie Jackson walking, and he took him in broad daylight. There’s a new kids’ game in New York. It’s called Hit the Old People Over the Head. The junior record was set the other night, a 102-year old woman.

“No mater how people try to demean New York,” said George Steinbrenner, “it’s still the Big Apple. If somebody would just realize that.”

Reggie Jackson has heated exchange with autograph seeker

I can’t (expletive) believe someone would (expletive) (expletive) another (expletive) (expletive) (expletive) from Reggie.

Daily News reported that Jackson yelled at the fan: “I already signed one, and you go back to the (expletive) line and come up again. That’s (expletive) up. Now, it’s my time to eat dinner with people I seldom see. It’s (expletive) up. Pay for them like everybody else.’’

Jackson did not deny the exchange, but repeatedly said he did not shove or push the fan.

“Maybe these people were a little pushy,’’ Jackson said, “but at the same time, I was upset because it was kind of an over-and-over thing. It’s 10 o’clock at night. It’s time to go home. Leave us alone.

“And so the words got heated, but as far as anybody touching someone, that did not come from me.

“I don’t touch people in public. You can’t do it. It’s not what you do.’’
