    From WTSP/Tampa Bay’s 10 News

    Governor-elect Charlie Crist, Lieutenant Governor-elect Jeff Kottkamp and members of the New York Yankees held a mini baseball camp for Florida’s foster children at Legends Field in Tampa today.

    This event is one of many leading to Inauguration Day on January 2nd in Tallahassee.

    Members of the New York Yankees organization – including Alex Rodriguez, Johnny Damon and retired first baseman Tino Martinez – held the camp for 50 Florida foster children.

    It’s a nice story. But, I have to confess – the home page of the WTSP team has me checking my eyes now. In the banner of the page is a team photo of the news team with their names. Do they realize that the order reads “Reggie, Heather, Dick Justin”?

    Reminds me of when the Red Sox used to have their retired numbers hung at Fenway in the order they were retired: 9, 4, 1, and 8, – reminding fans of Sept. 4, 1918, the day before the start of the last World Series the Red Sox won – before 2004.

      Pause between “just” and “in.”

      Yeah, I know, it’s American Pie type humor.
