Catching some baseball on vacationPosted: Saturday, August 2, 2008
I haven’t forgotten you, loyal readers (all 2 of you). We’ve just been on vacation a little bit.
Watching Old-Timer’s Day with My Father the would-be Sportswriter, and thinking of Thurman Munson, who died on this day 29 years ago, while trying to educate the Baby in the lore of baseball (and bunny cars).
A few days ago, the Yankees traded for Detroit’s Ivan Rodriguez, and I thought the same thing this blogger did at Bronx Banter: what would Munson have thought about the Yankees acquiring a catcher with the nickname of “Pudge,” the same as his hated Red Sox rival Carlton Fisk?
Anyway, more blog posts in the future, after vacation. Enjoy the summer.
