Getting Ready for Game 3

I've got my cap on my head, my "Live to Dream" Dodger -shirt on and my jersey ready to go. I'll be sitting in the Upper Reserve Section #55- way out in deep left field. For this game no seat is a bad seat. I hope to see you there.

Clap Loudly. Cheer Readily. And in the honor of the great Buck O'Neil, be thankful always. We are playing in October! Nothing to be worried about here.

I'm also going to the LA Kings home opener this evening against the St. Louis Blues. It'll be tight, but if Maddux pitches his usual quick and effective game I hope to able to make it to the Staples Center in time for the 1st period with no less than a minute to spare. Nevertheless, I won't be leaving early for any reason.

This is a great day for sports in LA.

If you can't make it out for the local events, then, as Tommy would say, "To the TV!"

Buck O'Neil: You Will Always be Remembered

November 11, 1911- October 6, 2006

"God's been good to me. They didn't think Buck was good enough to be in the Hall of Fame. That's the way they thought about it and that's the way it is, so we're going to live with that. Now, if I'm a Hall of Famer for you, that's all right with me. Just keep loving old Buck. Don't weep for Buck. No, man, be happy, be thankful."

With great respect I thank you... for your wisdom, your passion and your patience. You are one of America's great Americans.
