It's hard to believe how many people Nuxie touched. I too went to mass this morning and all the talk was about Joe. One guy,who I didn't even know was a Reds fan (and you have to understand that the parish is only about 125 people--small town), went on and on about how big of a loss this was.
It's funny how all those inaccuracies that everyone used to talk about when Joe called a game didn't matter anymore.
