When Wrong is Right...And Funny
A TLBR loyalist made this point to me just a few minutes ago, when I was a wee bit/tad concerned over the health of Red Sox catcher and captain Jason Varitek:"Our catcher has a knee injury. It could be worse.On this day in 1979, Thurman Munson crashed his jet. One of the great moments in NY history. Too bad Catfish, Murcer, Goose, Rags or Willie had other plans that day."
While we here at TLBR don't root for plane crashes, we do chuckle at Yankee jokes.
So Happy Thurman Munson is a Crappy Pilot Day.
The same reader goes further, making the point that Carlton Fisk is a Hall of Famer and Munson is not.
And while we're at it, I remember going to a game at the Toilet (Yankee Stadium) on Thurman Munson Day a few years back, and right during the moment of silence/Bob Sheppard just forgetting what he was supposed to say, a plane flew over. Someone muttered: "He shoulda just flown commercial."
Ok, that's it for the mid-day bit. If you're not at lunch, go. If you're just coming back, I hope it was tasty-delicious.
