Great Moments in Randomness

It left a very bad taste in everyone's mouth when his career ended the way that it did, but finally, a grievous wrong is about to be righted. History is about to be set back on its proper course. Eric Young is going to retire as a Colorado Rocky:

Former All-Star second baseman Eric Young will officially retire as a member of the Colorado Rockies next week. Young played for the Rockies from 1993 to '97, and hit the first major league home run in Denver at the old Mile High Stadium in April 1993. He currently works as an analyst on ESPN's "Baseball Tonight" . . .

. . . Young will be honored with a pregame ceremony before the Rockies play the Dodgers on September 12th.
Next up: Greg Harris. No, the other one.

I was at that game at Mile High. My brother's boss got the tickets and went to the game with us. After the top-half of the first, he went to get a hot dog.

He returned at the top of the second and asked "What did I miss?"

This is silly. He played five years with the Rockies and now he's so important that he's re-signed just to retire there? Come on.

See what happens when you don't have Sausage Races to entertain folks between the innings. A few more stuff meats running around ballparks means fewer make believe it matters events.

The question is: will anyone be able to understand his acceptance/thank you speech? Or does he just keep a dozen marbles in his mouth when he's on BT?

Shouldn't analyst also be in quotation marks?
