Re: What Gene Robinson Can Learn From Jackie Robinson (TIME MAGAZINE) (fwd)
In 1948 my Dad took me to a national hardware convention in Detroit.
Although I was only 11, I got to go alone to the All-Star game.
Afterwards I asked the hotel desk to tell me his room number (as they
would in those days) and after I had knocked several times, Jackie
Robison showed up in a towel dripping wet.
"Will you sign my baseball?" I drawled.
"Where are you from, Carrot Top?" he asked as he took my pen and ball.
"Alabama," I answered.
"I am glad to sign it for you," he said smiling.
In 30 years with Ernest life continues to imitate baseball.
