With the wearing of number 42 yesterday to remember Jackie Robinson and his first game with the Dodgers 60 years ago breaking baseball’s colour barrier, my mind went back to my parents. They told me about getting out to watch several games when Robinson played with the Montreal Royals before moving up to the parent club, the Dodgers. What a great player he was.
A strange juxtaposition this week with 42 and Don Imus’ dismissal. Lots of sparks inside my head about that but nothing clear enough to write about just yet.
