(that being there are a few famous Michael Jacksons in history.... for better or worse)

Not at all...I can assure you that Generalissimo Francisco Franco's status remains the same.

In spite of being a Dodger, he was one of the greats.

RE: OT: NEW He's Dead, Jim--notable Deaths thread
Back when Sirius-XM first came out, Astros were playing at Dodgers and I tuned in to the Dodger feed because I would rather listen to Scully than Milo, any day. Anyway, Craig Biggio came up to bat. To set the stage, I have been a huge Astros fan since the Colt .45 days, Biggio has always been one of my all-time favorite Astros, and I have even met him a couple of times through our mutual friend, the late and great Frankie Mandola. In the course of that one plate appearance, Scully told me four things about Craig Biggio that I had never known before.

Perhaps at the other end of the preparation scale, I may have heard the one time that Scully got caught unprepared. I was in Long Beach for my two-week Naval Reserve duty, and driving back from lunch at the O-club, I had the Dodger game on the radio. They used to (may still) have some "businessmen's special" weekday home games that started at noon. Being LA/Hollywood, a number of the businessmen attending were motion picture executives, and in the hope of being discovered, a number of aspiring starlets would show up in various stages of undress and try to attract attention. Coming back from a mid-inning advert/station break, Scully is describing in great detail the antics of one such (apparently very attractive) starlet on top of the visiting dugout. All of a sudden, he exclaims, "I must apologize, my friends, Steve Garvey has apparently just hit a home run, because he is jogging around the bases, and I did not see the play. But I can assure you, had you been in my place, you would have been watching what I was watching, too."

I love this article's ending:

Quote:“Writing history or biography, you must remember that nothing was ever on track,” Mr. McCullough told the Times in 1992. “Things could have gone any way at any point. As soon as you say ‘was,’ it seems to fix an event in the past. But nobody ever lived in the past, only in the present.

“The difference is that it was their present,” he continued. “They were just as alive and full of ambition, fear, hope, all the emotions of life. And just like us, they didn’t know how it would all turn out. The challenge is to get the reader beyond thinking that things had to be the way they turned out and to see the range of possibilities of how things could have been otherwise.”

A bit young for anybody, from my POV.

Sad news in Hattiesburg as long time USM baseball coach Corky Palmer passed away yesterday at the age of 68 (gulp!!) after a somewhat lengthy illness. Corky was one of a kind and after his retirement in 2010 he was basically an ambassador for USM athletics...he always greeted the Rice fans with humor and respect and was a great fan of Wayne Graham...
