Hank and Willie



Last evening I had the great pleasure to watch Bob Costas interview two American Treasures, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays.

Hank is classy, dignified a magnificent ambassador for the game.

Willie is an American classic. I can think of only a few athletes, Jordon, Ali, Tiger Woods, Ruth, who understood that sports is entertainment. Willie knew it best. You can rave about Bonds and Rodriguez, Willie gave the fans what they wanted and with a flair that no one else has ever matched. So let Manny be Manny. I'd always prefer Willie being Willie.

Classy and dignified is absolutely right. It's a different world today, but the players don't have to be a bunch of assholes.
