On Wednesday, U.S. Senate Honors Former MLBer Rick Monday

The United States Senate has passed a resolution honoring Rick Monday, currently a Dodgers broadcaster and formerly an outfielder with teams including the Chicago Cubs, Dodgers and Athletics. The full text of the resolution can be found here. The resolution honors Monday's memorable 1976 rescue of an American flag from two protesters intent on lighting it aflame in the outfield at Dodger Stadium (the event is is described here and here). A video of Monday saving the flag (with some interviews) is here. A press conference is being held today. HT to Ben Maller.

Can you just imagine if Rick Monday did this today, in the era of the Internet post 9/11?

Good to know the Senate has its eye on the ball.

Silly me. I thought other things were going on in the world.
