business news in context, analysis with attitude

I'm not sure how many people outside the New York metropolitan area will "get" this, but I'd like to take note of the passing of Bill Mazer, a longtime NY-area sportscaster who passed away this week at age 92, at an assisted living facility in Danbury, Ct. He was a 60-year broadcasting veteran, on radio and television, and was known for an encyclopedic knowledge of sports trivia ... and, I think, an enthusiasm for the games and personalities of sports that never, ever dimmed. (I met him several times. I worked in a clothing store with his son, Arnie. And I vividly remember a fitness crusade he was on back in the sixties, and how I went to a bowling alley as a participant.)

I mention all this for a simple reason. I think it is worth noting the contributions of old lions who roar as long as they can ... maybe because I hope I'll be one of them.
