Was Jose Rijo ever anything less than entertaining?
Great quotes, fantastic teammate, fun with mascots and fans, dominant World Series, one the most impressive comebacks in baseball history.
I couldn't find a picture of Tom Browning sitting on the rooftop outside Wrigley dangling his legs and drinking a beer. When I saw this one with Rijo and the cigar, it was the next best thing.
"I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."
