One of baseballs greatest players ever, Stan “The Man” Musial, died at the spy age of 92

Image

After posing for this shot, Musial felt compelled to apologize to the photographer for using such harsh language as “gee willikers.”

Musial was an “aw, shucks” corn-fed hayseed from western Pennsylvania.  He carried around autographed cards of himself to give away.  He also enjoyed doing magic tricks for kids.

Seriously?  Didn’t he do steroids?  Throw a bat at a competitor?  Get into fights at strip clubs?

No.

But he was fond of pulling out a harmonica to entertain crowds with his favorite, “The Wabash Cannonball.”

What was with this guy?  Didn’t he sleep around on his wife?  Curse out the press?  Bitch-slap a hooker in a dark ally?  Nothing.  This guy was cleaner than a Dutch oven.  He was like Clark Kent.  Mr. Smith took morality lessons from him.  He was Mr. Deeds!

He played for 22 years and made the all-star team 24 times.  You read that right.  Apparently, they held the All-Star game twice a year.  Man, MLB used to love its exercises in futility.  I bet their Facebook pages would have been filled with political posts.

This hit puts Nikki the Bad-Ass on the board!  She is now part of a five-way tie for 3rd place!  She has about 10 points more than the Ghoul Pool Administrator.  She’s has as many points as The New Dick in Town!  But she still has to catch up with Babysitter.  (Remember the days when we were just gunning for Bean?… or at least, when I was?)

Happy pooling,

SPMI
