    A Little Interesting Thing Today at Work

    My job is a rather obscure one; I audit companies' freight bills for overcharges. Down through the years, I've seen shipments going to various famous folks' homes.

    I even one time did an audit of the Reds bills even had a signed contract with them (hence I could honestly say I had a contract with the Reds). I never cancelled it after they stopped sending the bills so my secretary could truthfully say I was at a clients' when I went to a Business Day Special! One of the bills I saw there was Bill Gullickson's moving bill after he came over to the Reds.

    That said, this afternoon, I'm leafing through the bills and came across a shipment going to Dusty Baker - apparently he's putting in a tennis court!

    Since we hold this information confidential, I can't tell everybody where he lives.

    (P.S. I can say he's not building a place around here!)

    Did anyone else's heart skip a little in fear when they saw Dusty's name?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I had to change some of my clothes.

    If he was with the Mets, he could have ruined the arm of Dave Williams.

    Not that it mattered, anyway.

    Yes, it's in the Sacramento area - I saw in his bio that he attended college in Sacramento.
