No. Rich men don't get rich by giving away their money...

And to all the stuff - I believe there's a deep respect for the 'my way or nothing' and 'winning at all costs' attitudes that Lou and George Steinbrenner both share. I think they were friends for a while.

The baseball link to the Devils goes back even further as Dr. McMullen also owned the Houston Astros...
