“No man is an island,
No man stands alone,
Each man’s joy is joy to me,
Each man’s grief is my own.
We need one another,
So I will defend,
Each man as my brother,
Each man as my friend.”

~ Joan Baez

“For when the One Great Scorer comes
To mark against your name,
He writes – not that you won or lost –
But how you played the Game.”

“I copied Jackson‘s style because I thought he was the greatest hitter I had ever seen, the greatest natural hitter I ever saw.”

“Yes, [Cobb’s] a prick, but he sure can hit. God Almighty, that man can hit!”

~ Babe Ruth


 

A Mile in My Shoes: Joe Jackson

A Mile in My Shoes: Joe Jackson (Published in Spitball Magazine)
by Don I. Waldo
I had a uniform that was dirty but a conscience that was clean.
I never laid eyes on a one of them but knew them all by name.
I never spoke to them directly but heard what they were asking.
I told them to go to hell, but they said I was already there.
I asked to sit this one out but was told I would never stand.
I never asked for nothing, but they gave it to me anyways.
I tried to tell them what was going down, but they knew what was up.
I always played to win but somehow managed to lose.
I never learned to read or write, but my signed confession still damns me.
I was owed a living wage, but he’s paying me beyond the grave.
History has called me out, but His is the only call that matters.
