One of the greatest perks to being a journalist is breaking news.
Not just the breaking news you see on CNN or some other major medium where something has been bombed or the President did something, but the kind where you’re the first to report something no one else knows about. The kind where other publications will want to also publish — at least I’d certainly hope so.
You’ll have to forgive me for my long introduction, but if you read the headline, you’ll pretty much know what I’m getting at. It’s not everyday you get to not only break news and shine light on your idol at the same time. I guess it’s a special perk for me in way. After all, the journalists who break news aren’t really remembered very much, but to know that I’m the reason this news gets out is rewarding beyond words. There aren’t enough sentences, phrases and analogies in the world that can describe the true honor and privilege it is for me to bring you this news.
My fellow baseball fans, Roger Maris — one of the greatest baseball players of all-time, the legitimate home run king, the three-time world champion, back-to-back MVP and all around great guy — is being considered for induction into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame.
