Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Sandy Koufax was born today!:


I think continually of those who were truly great lefthanders:
Koufax, Grove, Carlton, Spahn ...
There were righties who were deft handers,
too: Drysdale, Gibson, Marichal, and Newcombe, Don.

Same birthday as Patti Smith. :)

Don't know her:
does she throw left or right?
Got a Yellow Hammer?
Is her sinker tight?

Comes from Texas,
eh? I ain't lyin':
don't think it's sexist,
to prefer Nolan Ryan.

Among portsiders I maintain
Mr Koufax hurls a hurricane
at all-star hitters who face
the fast ball of fleeting fame,
the curve ball of disgrace.

-- K. C. (Royal) Stengel

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
