Lou Gehrig

“A” and I were talking the other day about the sad fact that lou Gehrig’s awesome accomplishments get over shadowed by the tragic way he died.  I will be putting up a number of posts that highlight his baseball career.  I am doing this to honor the real and spectacular lives of Lou Gehrig, my physical therapist Jane, and others who should be remembered for the way they lived.

    That’s a great idea, Believer! Sometimes the phrase “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” sounds like a married name, like his maiden name was “Lou Gehrig,” then he hyphenated it after he married someone named “Sdisease.”

    I’m partial to variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and Börjeson-Forssman-Lehmann syndrome, but am glad they aren’t named after me.

    This is still a great idea! I hope to see more Lou Gehrig postings.
