Larry At The Bat

Larry does not suffer April fools lightly. He looks up the origin of April Fools Day and the information doesn’t make him like it any better. In honor of the start of baseball season, we hear a classic baseball poem and talk about the movie “The Pride of the Yankees.” There is no joy in Level 5 City, the mighty Larry has struck out.

Quote of the week: “He said something in old English. And then they skinned you.”

    Fred I always love your podcasts. Keep it up! (P.S. I have been reading a lot of James Thurber short stories lately. They always work better and are much funnier when I mentally cast you in the the lead role as I read. I am sure this information can be of no practical use, but let me assure you it’s some of your best work.) yours, Angus.

    Larry, Ruth batted third (it’s why he wore #3) and Gehrig batted 4th (he wore #4). And ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. There’s a walk-a-thon to combat it in Westbury every September.

    Just an FYI Lou Gehrig’s disease can be “cured” if the person can get a successful bone marrow transplant. So EVERYONE should sign up to be a bone marrow donor!

      So why doesn’t Stephen Hawking take the cure?

    Two outs and first base open, why didn’t the opponents just walk the mighty Casey and deal with whoever was next?
