RIP: Bobby Thompson

Bobby Thompson died yesterday at the age of 86. As all good Dodger fans know he perpetrated a great offense to us all. He hit a pennant deciding home run against the "Boys in Blue" in 1951. They have since called it the "Shot Heard 'Round the World." Although his indiscretion in favor of the hated Giants should curry some hatred from me, I just cannot muster it. He was a fine man who had a fine career.

Rest in Peace, "Flying Scot."
