Stepping away from the 2008 campaign for a moment to acknowledge the passing of John Marzano. Always a favorite in my house, Marzano was one of those hard-nosed, scrappy, old-fashioned ball players. Known for managing to get into the camera shot of any teammate who hit a homerun (hence the nickname "Airtime"), it was especially fun to watch Marzano after Ken Griffey Jr. would homer. Marzano would practically be sitting in Junior's lap - priceless. We'll miss you.
