Today in Local Sports Coverage: Meet the Steinbrenners

85769923 Today in Local Sports Coverage: Meet the SteinbrennersHe’s not exactly the Gipper, but all your sportswriters are very concerned with the Yankees winning this World Series for owner George Steinbrenner. “One for the Boss,” says the Post’s back cover. (Their front cover is really something else: A composite shot of Shane Victorino with a cheerleader skirt and some mis-matched white legs and the sub-head “The Frillies Are Coming to Town!”)

It’s not like the Boss doesn’t have his share of rings. As Kevin Kernan reminds us, this would be his 7th–“7/11 for the owner who was born on the 4th of July. You have to like those numbers,” he writes.

The Daily News gives us another interesting number detail, concerning how Joe Girardi chose his uniform number. “Mr. Steinbrenner deserves another championship,” Girardi said. “That’s why I wear this number (27). We’re trying to do this for him.” There are lots of quotes like that in all these stories, which is probably good policy.

The Steinbrenner kids get some good ink too. “Let’s Hear it for the Boys,” says the Daily News’ back cover, and Mike Lupica says the young Steinbrenners are the Yankees’ real MVPs. And he’s got The Straw That Fetches The Drink backing him up. 

George A. King III hints at an answer to my question from yesterday about whether Hal Steinbrenner will inherit his dad’s nickname. He ends his story with this: “Just ask The Boss: old or new.” So there you have it.

No one is happy with the Knicks’ boss, on the eve of a season that most expect to be historically bad, since General Manager Donnie Walsh gutted the payroll to make room for LeBron James. Charles Barkley weighed in yesterday, and a commenter e-mails Peter Vecsey. “The Lebron countdown is very entertaining. I always enjoy watching time tick away.”

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
