And Another Thing

Thoughts on Sparky

Or one thought, actually, on Sparky Anderson's passing:

Can't help dwelling on the ultimate sadness of his death, which is that he died from complications arising from dementia. Which means that, at his death, he likely had no idea who he was, or of anything he'd done in his life.

Now that, friends, is a tragedy.
