Have a Happy Thanksgiving

In the list of things I am thankful for, the loyalty and kindness of my readers is at the top of the list. Many of you have stayed with me through the years and for that I am most grateful. There are a lot of reasons why I still do the blog and your support is at the top of the list.

I wish you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving with your families.

My best to all of you.

Thanks,

JD

The Voice of God meets God

Bob Sheppard, the longtime Yankee Stadium PA announcer called the Voice of God for his dignified and resonate tones, has passed away at age 99.

You’ll hear stories the next few days about how he would race to the elevator after the final out of games at the Stadium. I’ll always remember how nice he treated me when I covered the Yankees; he me treated with respect and kindness, the way he treated all people.

Bob Sheppard is being remembered for his work today, but it should be noted he was a people person. Bob liked people, but people liked Bob. That’s the highest accolade you can give anybody.
