Stan "the Man" Musial dies

It's been nearly two weeks since the great Stan Musial passed away at 92. Here's a link to read about the great St. Louis Cardinal: clickety-click I remember one story told on the radio about Musial. When he was in his seventies, he was being interviewed by a well-known sports caster. Part of the interview went something like this:

Interviewer: Stan could you still hit .350 against the pitchers of today?
Musial: Well maybe not .350. It would be tough.
Interviewer: Well, why would it?
Musial: Well, geez, I'm 75 years old.

Here's to a great ball player, and great American. R.I.P., Stan.
