Let’s have more kindness

People and media please realize 3 things

1. The people of Santa  Fe Texas need time to grieve and heal don’t be shoving mics and camera in their faces nor manipulate them for political gain.

2.  It not just  guns , mental illness or bad parenting that caused this but  a combo.

3. If government and society re learned how to be civil and  how to deal with rejection or disagreements we would lessen the chance of these  senseless acts.

I hope the Indians Astros can povide the folks of Santa fe and nation a few hours of escape from the horror of what happened Friday.

aww to be a 1950s  yannkee

little boys wanted to be you

even cancer sticks

i know this is nor the right year but these legends were broadcasters in the wpix tv and  WINS radio booth

throwback snippet i I have  fired the manager i hired last week 1968 Pirates Manager  Shepard and hire 1957  Yankee manager casey stengel

Wed wrap up

Ozzie Albies  and Ronald Acuña Jr. were big cogs in a Braves win.  What is so impressive about this team is the kids are showing the discpline of seasoned pros and the veterans are splashing in the fountain of youth The biggest weakness I can see is the pens is a bit shaky.but right now the have a 1 game lead over the rival Phillies and i’m sure the  Mets and  Nats will make charges at the Braves

a. Waren  Sphan

b.  Eddie Mathews

c. Hank Aaron

Sphan  was a key huler for the last Braves  pennant winner (1948) in Boston  Eddie is only person in big league history to play for a team in 3 different home cities

True or False on the day Babe  Ruth hit his 714th  and last home run he 3 homers and one went completely out of Braves Field

The  Jimmy Fund was started to help a yuong  cancer patient with Medical bills and to buy “Jimmy ” what?

being a Braves fan “Jimmy” requested a tv set to watch his team play.

It is  funny when you  consider the Jimmy fund is big causes for  the  Redsox now
