Perfect Ten, Unnoticed

I comment that most of us walk past celebrity on a daily basis and then my own family provides an example. We congregated in Cincinnati for the weekend, and one of our Philly cousins was at a loss to explain the chaos surrounding her flight's arrival in the Queen City. "Some guy, something Spark," was about as far as she got.

Sparky Anderson, manager of the Big Red Machine in the 70s, had his #10 jersey retired this weekend at the Great American Ballpark. He drew a well-deserved crowd, at least from those who recognized him.

Comments:

Cincinnati!? You made it here on one of the few weekends when the weather ROCKED! Hope you enjoyed your stay... I swear my wife and I saw Sparky Anderson in a local Lowes a few years back. However....there's lots of old guys around these parts who are always decked out in Reds gear. There's a very slight chance I was mistaken. ;-) Jason Cincinnati, OH
