Don't we need a catcher? Not if you get it near the plate we don't. I'm going to beat you with a crowbar until you leave. You can't do that. There are rules here? No, there are no rules here. So what do you want?

Mom died when I was three, and I suppose Dad did the best he could. Dad was a Yankees fan then, so of course I rooted for Brooklyn. But in '58, the Dodgers moved away, so we had to find other things to fight about. And when it came time to go to college, I picked the farthest one from home I could find.
