Since I spoke to last week, things are not getting much better concerning my friend Jerry. I found out the C-Word is now in stage 4, and that he has pneumonia. I will be visiting with him tomorrow, as I know the end is nearing for my friend of 26 years. But on that note, I am also sitting here watching DVT's team the San Diego Padres, or is it the Angels and Dodgers one is never sure. I am being bless right now with the only other voice I could listen call a game 365 days a year other than Ernie Harwell, Vin Scully. The only announcer in professional sports who does not require a color commentator, because he has seen and told it all over the past 40-50 years. It brought back a memory, and I thought I would share it with you.......

And since Youtube did not have the actual video I wanted I thought I would share one of many highlights of Vin Scully's career, Hank Aaron's 715th home run. How many remember or in this case were alive to see this historic moment? I know I was sitting on the floor in the living room with my grandfather that evening, baseball was not televised much that day (before cable television) so they only covered historic events such as this one. The once thought unreachable record set by Babe Ruth.

What the hell is wrong with the Boston pitching staff, along with their entire team? With the ass kicking they took today by Cabby and Prince who bombed Josh Beckett, and a freak inning by Pappa Grande on Thursday spoiling Justin Verlander's 8-inning gem, they would not have scored a run in the first two games of this series. Unless they get their act together soon, all you gabbers who are Red Sox fans are in for a long summer. The series is turning into exactly the opposite of what people and reporters thought, a total mismatch.....

One of things I always knew about my friend, was that he liked all types of music (except for rap). I also know that he keeps a promise, as I inherited about 500 or so records LP's and 45's that cover about 5 decades of music along with the history of rock and roll. A full picture of every Beatles cover that they recorded, and a few things that would make a beer drinker happy.......

This is the only version of this song I like, and every other evening or so at the end of a shift one of our local DJ's would play it so we could listen and enjoy. 

As I stated earlier, this ain't your normal blog, but I thought I would congratulate Steven Stamkos for being the only player to accomplish this during the season.........

This is what I think about all of the dope smokers in the NBA, who are overpaided criebabies, who should be thankful for what they have now. Because it can all go away in snap of a finger. So kiss my ass Dwight Howard for trying to get your coach fired. Get the hell out of Orlando if you do not like him, you are only destroying the chemistry or the lack of your team, along with creating a lack of trust from them concerning you. You backstabbing bitch.

As I found out from the past, people grieve in different ways, Ernie is waiting for you in heaven Jerry. I know he was your favorite announcer, you will have the best seat in the house right next to him calling Tigers games to this day from his favorite spot in Tiger Stadium bro. It has been a great ride my friend, but it is time to say goodbye. I know the end is near for you my friend, so enjoy your seat next to him.........

Until we meet again, thanks for reading my post.........
