The Many Passions of Ozzie Smith
Trolling the news for content, for bloggers, seems a bit like chasing around Britney Spears, taking pictures of her buying Aqua Net, just waiting for that one moment when you can snap a shot of her endangering the lives of her new baby and fellow motorists by holding the pup in her lap while she drives a car. Nevertheless, you can find interesting stuff out there with a gazillion different media outlets. Ozzie Smith is becoming rather adept at golf, and is playing the in Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this weekend. You can learn more in an interview with The Wizard over at the San Jose Mercury News. If you're not so inclined to read more puff "journalism" today, I'll sum up the dramatic climax of the interview. Asked if he would vote McGwire into the HOF, Ozzie responded in the finest traditions of Congressional testimony:
I don't have a vote. I don't have a vote. I don't have a vote, so I don't know.
