Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Joe Garagiola, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

Former Cardinals  catcher Joe Garagiola  has died,  aged 90.   During his era,  it was quite rare for a sports star to successfully transition into a broadcasting career,  but he managed it.   One of the qualities which helped him do so was a great sense of humor and a dash of humility.   By all accounts he was a thoroughly nice man,  supportive of his community and his sport,  and ever ready to help out as a speaker.   He will be missed.
