Happy Birthday Bambino

I just toasted the ever-lovin' Babe with a chilly one in honor of his 115th, which officially ended about an hour ago. For me, his name still means the excitement of baseball when I was young. I think it always will.

George Will, in comparing him to others who played the game, referred to him as
"an Everest in Kansas." I think that's about right.
