Thurman Munson - 32 Years Later

August 2. I think of it every year. I remember it so well.

We lost Thurman Munson 32 years ago today. He was 32 when he died in the plane crash in his beloved Canton, OH (he was born in Akron - next door, and he stayed loyal).

Let's send a little karma to the Cleveland Indians tonight. There's a chance Thurman would have played for them in 1980 (though I still question that). More importantly, a really good friend of mine is a fan of Chief Wahoo and the gang. He could probably use a smile tonight.

Plus they're playing the Red Sox. Thurman would be happy to see them lose.

So would I.

Here's Thurman and his buddy, Mr. Murcer. I've never seen this picture before. I like it.
