Holy #### -- were those typed? As in on a typewriter? Or was Blyleven using a font that hasn't been seen in 30 years?

To my children, to my grandchildren,
to my brothers and sisters, from my sister Joann, to my sister
Betsy, to my sister Trudy, to my brother Joe, to my son Tim, to
my son Todd, my son Kip, to my son David, you'd think I'd buy my
wife some shoes.


Dutch humor?

Once I started pitching, though, my dad
told me I couldn't throw a curve ball until I was 13 or 14 years
old.


Well, that's cute.

A number of good, cute stories in Bert's speech. No shout out to Rich Lederer though.

No shout out to Rich Lederer though.

I was surprised by that...after all the recent mentions of Blyleven/Lederer in the press this week.

Guess there wasn't a circle-me-lamebrain, tie-cutting, fart joke attached.
