The birds are chirping, the sun is shinning and spring is on the way!
Although spring is coming, we have had some significant losses in the last week. Some great Americans have passed.
1. Bud Collins: What a wonderful journalist! He could do more with words in one paragraph than most people could in a lifetime. He created many fun catchphrases about players: The Franco-American Kid about Mary Pierce, Fraulein Forehand for Steffi Graf, and Pistol Pete. He will be missed and to me, tennis has not been the same since he stopped broadcasting.
2. Nancy Reagan: She just passed yesterday and will be remembered as the first woman in the Oval Office. She was a powerful force in politics and added a lot of positive energy to the Reagan Administration.
3. George Kennedy: He was a creative and interesting actor.
Just watch Cool Hand Luke!
