    “That was my job. When did it become OK for someone to hit home runs and forget how to play the rest of the game?”

    Beautiful – respect, credit to others,

    commitment and a love of the job.

    I find it funny that the day after Ryno’s Integrity speech, that his arch-nemesis, Mr. Viagra, Mr. ‘I never have taken illegal steroids’ himself, gets busted for, um, taking steroids.

    Rafi, the only way you’re seeing Ryno in the hall of fame is if you buy a ticket like the rest of us.

    “Keep your nose clean, your mouth shut and your eyes and ears open because you might just learn something.” I am so going to tell my little guys that. Great advice. I got misty, too. How inspirational! Ryne is truly a class act.

    Yeah it got me, too. I didn’t exactly cry but I sniffled a few times. Ryno had so many great thinsg to say in that speech. Mary quoted the one line that stands out the most for me, too: When did it become okay for someone to hit home runs and forget how to play the rest of the game? Sorry Ryno but that’s all your – OUR – Cubbies know how to do these days. I loved all that he had to say about his former teammates, especially that whacko Shawon Dunston, Mark Grace, and Andre Dawson. The Hawk is still a class act and I hope to see him in the Hall soon, too.

    “Class” act. Key word and much needed today.

    Liz, those little guys of yours are going to learn something valuable for them and for others.
