Sad news: As reported in the "Daily News" this morning, the man who chronicled our Dodgers, along with their long-sought World Series in '55 and their abandonment of Brooklyn two years later, passed into history himself. Another piece of Brooklyn history - gone!
I was a student at the also-gone St Thomas Aquinas elementary school in Flatlands where Sr Mary Timothy let us listen to the Series during class and then the administrators gave us a day off when they won. My grandfather had taken my sister, Ginny, and I to a game or two prior to those later victories. We became big fans (although not to the "stats" level). What a time!
Since joining the Board many years ago, I enjoyed the feuds among posters about the "good" guys and "bad" guys over the controversial move of the Dodgers to La La Land.
Thoughts, feelings, memories?
