The Boston Herald Likes Me! They Really Like Me!


Excuse me for going all Sally Field in my headline, but it's appropriate. One day after my public display of depression, the Boston Herald (may their tribe - and their readership - increase!) published my piece about baseball and family.

Here it is for your reading pleasure!

Thank you, Herald! And thank YOU for your continued support!

(As usual, kind comments at the website are appreciated. When I receive the Nobel for literature later this year, everybody is invited to my place for pizza!)

Soon, with more better stuff.

We have done our duty, to wit:

"Buck • a minute ago

You're blessed, Jim. I know Cubbies fans who die with their hopes unrealized. Count yer blessings."

Oh, well. Put a "will" in the appropriate place, please.

Suldog said...

Thank you, kind sir. You're a true friend.

Jackie said...

So proud of you, my friend.
Were you named after him?
I know that you are continuing his legacy of patience and love.

Suldog said...

Yes, indeed, Jackie, I was named after my Uncle Jim. Thanks for the compliments!

I've had trouble trying to sign back into their comments page recently.. the last two or three times.

My comment was:

I'm not a sports fan but I am a Jim Sullivan fan. So nice that you can attribute your love for the sport to your uncle. What a wonderful gift to one another.

Hilary said...

It worked after all.. nevahmind! ;)

I commented... about a half hour ago.
It's not there.

In the comment I mentioned having seen both Ed Bressoud, with the Giants, and Dick Stuart, with the Pirates.

Delightful, Jim. Of course, I've had '68 and '84, but my eldest daughter was only 2 in '84, and none of my sons had been born yet, so I'm hoping for the same kind of joy to one day invade their lives, as well.

Eddie Brinkman became a Tiger, in the 70s (part of the booty the Tigers got in exchange for a suddenly washed-up Denny McLain); couldn't hit his way out of a paper bag, but oh, could he pick it. . .

And Dalton Jones was one of 'those guys' - I think his lifetime BA against the Tigers was .450, or somesuch, so they finally figured if they traded for him, maybe he just liked hitting in Tiger Stadium. Of course, once he couldn't hit against Tigers pitching anymore, his career was essentially over. . .

AWESOME! I always knew you'd be a famous writer some day.

They should just name the op-ed column, Suldog's Corner.

It just proves the Herald knows good writing!! (That can't be said for all newspapers.) Congratulations!
