If the President really needs to spend billions to travel to India and Asia, can he at least bring us all back a crappy t-shirt?
Sparky Anderson was great, in my mind, not just for his 2100 plus wins. Captain Hook became a Hall of Fame immortal for his management of the Big Red Machine's World Series run, and for becoming the first skipper in Major League history to win a title in both leagues. For me though, it was his genuine generosity and his overwhelming humility that set Sparky aside from the rest. The reason those character traits resonate so strongly with me is that George Anderson was just about my dad's age. My father never managed a baseball game, at any level. But I see the same qualities in my dad that people attributed to Sparky. It must be a generational thing.
