A class act in Yankee Stadium…


Four New York Yankees – all wearing jersey #42 in honor of Jackie Robinson – join the fans in paying tribute to the Boston Red Sox and the City of Boston following the Marathon bombing by singing┬áNeil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline, which is traditionally sung in Boston’s Fenway Park at all the home games. (The Yankees were playing Arizona in an interleague game, and won 4-2)

I’m here trying to learn how to put a link into a WordPress post, using a column I wrote a few years ago in my old Blue Plate Special website, which was a hell of a lot more complicated than WordPress.

The tale is of old Reno auto dealerships (the inset photo, if it posts, is of the Dick Dimond Dodge dealership in the 500 block of South Virginia – an elegant building in the manner of an architect Willis Polk-designed, San Francisco 1920s dealership.)

A click at the end of the column on the blue license plate will bring you back here. Maybe. Click the lead line, and hang on!
