  • Church: Why bother? The teen edition

    A few weeks ago my youngest daughter came home for a quick visit on her way to a wedding and a football game.
    At 27, she has long outgrown her terrible teen years, although she still has a bit of an edge. That’s just Laura.
    When she was 14 or 15 she was into a grunge stage, very Kurt Cobain-Pearl Jam-Stone Temple Pilots. She’d wear pants big enough to fit two sumo wrestlers and heavy, bump-toe combat boots — to church. Hey, I was just glad she came to church back then and I wasn’t about to quibble over what she wore.

  • Good-bye Captain Hook, you did a great job

    This past week, one of the all time great managers lost his battle with dementia.  
    I won’t dwell on the horror of this disease, but only say that according to reports hospice had been called in only the day before he died.
    Hopefully he didn’t suffer.  
    I want to go over what I recall of Sparky Anderson’s career as a manager, the first if not the only manager to win a world championship in both leagues.
