THOUGHTS and HOPES by HANDSOME DICK MANITOBA
I enjoyed this baseball season, immensely. I loved all of the teams that carried hope into September. I loved the “No Name” Giants winning the World Series, the OLD FASHIONED WAY, with pitching, defense, patient hitting, and small ball. I loved the fact that my beloved NY Yankees won 95 games, their division, and a playoff series, against the O’s, with glue and string, and lots of magic and luck. I love that they made it to the “Final 4” of baseball.
I have one hope, for 2013. The same hope I have had for what will be 59 years, in January. That the Yankees win the WORLD SERIES. C’mon, # 28!!!!
And I thank Mr. Dan Epstein, for inviting me to these pages for the last 6 months, along with some adored Rock & Roll pals, to contribute to this labor of love column, HIGH and TIGHT.
Let’s do it again, in ‘13!
