    Unhappy RIP Frank Robinson

    "Frank Robinson, the first black manager in Major League Baseball and Hall of Fame outfielder, has died at 83. MLB tweeted the news and posted a commemorative picture of the two-time MVP.

    Robinson had been in hospice care at his home in Bel Air."

    Local news here said his jersey is retired for 3 teams...Reds, Orioles, and Indians. All 3 clubs have statues of him.

    Won the National League MVP for Cinci and the American League MVP for Balt. One of the top 10 players ever. Remember him well.

    RIP. Goodbye youth.

    Seriously. That's an era in being a kid for me. Never saw anyone else wearing an Orioles hat around here back then and I was never without mine. It was all about the Robinsons.

    RIP indeed.
    Test me not, lest I flout your inartful sophistry, puling jackanapes. I mean it too, man.

    Is Mr. Pink the one to bring me down ? Is Peterman on an NFL roster in 12/2019 ? What avatar do I choose for Mr. Pink ? Stay tuned, it's hugely !
