I'll always remember when my dad took me by his house in Fullerton when I was maybe 8. It was an average house in a less than average neighborhood just north of the 91, and you could tell it was his because it had a satellite dish behind it that took up the entire backyard. That was a lesson in humility that will stick with me my entire life.

My uncle played with him in Brooklyn. Never heard a bad word about the man. RIP

What he achieved as a manager and leader of men put him in the Hall of Fame

Condolences. Mrs. Wabash has lost two relatives to Covid-19.
Stay loose, and be a little afraid.

Thank you. I think Larry King died from Covid, too. Seems like I saw something a few days ago about him testing positive.
