Life No More, Legend Forever


Yesterday two legends left us. Hall of Fame Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas and Mark "The Bird" Fidrych each passed away yesterday. Their lives may be no more, but their legends will live forever.

I will always love you Harry, and I miss you already.

Its been a while since I can remember the baseball fraternity having such a tough week with members of the baseball family.

Add these two to the Adenhart tragedy and you've got one sombre week span of baseball.

I cried more yesterday than I have in a very long time.

was there a full moon last night? it seems like sportspeople were dropping like flies yesterday (not exactly the words i was looking for, but it was all i could come up with)! out here in AZ, there was some college basketball coach who died yesterday too.

its been a shitty week for baseball.

Hard to believe. Watching the Phils will never be the same. RIP.

He and Wheeler are the only voices I've ever known for the Phils from the beginning of my life. We've still got Wheels, but that's not even close to being the same.

Fidrych was cool, too.

I had his card.
