Re: How we die....then and now
One of the craziest stories to me about old-timey living is how Calvin Coolidge's son played tennis without his socks on, got a blister, it got infected, and he died from it. From not wearing socks with his shoes, one time.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
