      The most-recognized team in professional sports always gets the undeserved breaks. This episode, the first SportsCentury devoted to a team, is certainly no exception. Jeremy Schaap sends more excess glory on the team that won an all-sports record 26 world championships, all in the 20th Century.

      A nation of American baseball fans have grown to hate the Yankees. Their dreams were realized when the team went from dynasty to dumpster between 1965 and 1972. Then came George Steinbrenner, a native Clevelander who, despite turmoil and controversy, returned the Yankees to glory–twice.

      Jerry Jones took over the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 to restore the glory of "America's Team." It worked, as the Cowboys went on to win three Super Bowls in four years. But when it was over, it was really over. The 'Boys were suddenly back where they started, and worse.

      It's all too easy to inflict the word "scandal" on this game, or fall back on "Of course the postponement made a difference." But, upon perhaps the first close reflection of this U.S. basketball team, it appears that America had prepared to fail.

      Charlie Finley was the only owner who could turn the Kansas City Athletics away from their destructive reputation as the "Yankees' farm team." He was also the only owner to govern a team of battling players from another state. He used telephones for "surgery" as the Oakland A's won three World Series and then promptly disintegrated.moreless
