Class and no class (or beer)

Yesterday, Ken Griffey Jr. hit home run #587, passing Frank Robinson for sixth place on the career home run list. He is 15 behind Sammy Sosa for fifth place.

It was Griffey's 24th homer for 2007. (In the game, he went 4-for-4 with an RBI. The Reds beat the Braves 10-3.)

Griffey - he of the "sweet swing" - has had several unfortunate years of injuries which have prevented him from being further along.

Frank Robinson is one of the all-time great players, and a classy guy. The manner of his dismissal as manager from the Nationals was handled with gross lack of class by the team.

And, I might add, the Nationals through their proxy - Aramark - have refused to sell local beer in RFK.
