You could see her take an extra beat right before "and the rockets red glare" line, probably saying "please don't miss this note," then went on to miss the note... and a few more afterward. Moral of the story: when you're rolling, don't stop to think, just keep rolling. She probably hits the notes if she just stays in the zone she was in. You can't blame her for nerves, though, considering.First 1/3 or so of the song was very good then got a bit screechy in parts. Not a fan of the personal spin put on her rendition.
I told that story to my wife (Kaat looking very dominant as the SP against the Sox in the next to the last game and then having to quit with the sore arm).Interesting cream colored suit
Thanks for getting hurt at he end of 67, Jim.
Thanks for being for the voice of playoff baseball when I was growing up
I have signed pics of Ortiz, Brady, Orr, and Bird. If I ever save up enough money I'll have them archival-framed as my Mt. Rushmore.What an emotional day this is. There is no one player more important to the history of this franchise than David Ortiz. Him and Tom Brady are my sports heroes and one is going into the Hall today. It just goes to show you how incredibly lucky we were to have those two guys change the course of Boston sports history simultaneously. My Mount Rushmore will have 2 spots until somebody else is worthy enough to join them. Congrats 34. No one deserves it more than you.
His niece gave a fantastic speech, but it remains unconscionable that he was not inducted in 2006 when he could have given the speech himself.So many of the Negro League greats have Buck O'Neil to thank for keeping their stories and legacies alive. Buck O'Neil was an not just an incredible champion for the Negro Leagues, but also an ambassador for the game of baseball and made it his life's work to promote the two as one. I need to find my way to Kansas City.
