For Many Latino Players, Roberto Clemente’s Number Is Off Limits, Too


ROBERTO CLEMENTE … historical! … #BoricuaPride … ‘No. 21 is sacred in baseball, particularly to Puerto Ricans, because it was the longtime number of Clemente, the iconic player who hailed from the island.’

A report by James Wagner for The New York Times.

Eddie Rosario, the Minnesota Twins left fielder, can’t remember the exact year, but he was a youth baseball player in his native Puerto Rico when he was given the choice of two jerseys: No. 21 or another number.

“I’m not Roberto Clemente,” said Rosario, 27, who now wears one of the next-closest options, No. 20. “I can’t wear that.”

No. 21 is sacred in baseball, particularly to Puerto Ricans, because it was the longtime number of Clemente, the iconic player who hailed from the island. Even as a youngster in Guayama, Rosario knew of Clemente’s importance, which led him to join the majority of Puerto Rican major leaguers in doing something that Major League Baseball hasn’t: decline the use of No. 21 in an effort to essentially retire it.

Of the 235 Puerto Rico-born players who have appeared in…

OH MY GOD

When former Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Drumpf that Mueller had been appointed on May 17, 2017, Drumpf reportedly responded,

“Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m fucked,”

before ripping into Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation.

Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show …. 💞🎼 The Cher Show Cast 🎼💞 …. “!!

JIMMY FALLON AMD CHER

Cher is one of my ever favorite performers. I’ve seen her ‘Sony and Cher Show’, her movies, her videos and live concerts.

I follow her on Twitter. 

She’s an amazing human being deserving of every accolade she receives. 

Watched Jimmy’s show and loved it!

Forever Cher fan!!

Cher made a surprise appearance on The Tonight Show to perform her single “I Got You Babe” with the cast of The Cher Show, a Broadway musical about her life and career. Host Jimmy Fallon dedicated his entire episode to the singer to celebrate the musical.

In the performance, Cher joins actress Micaela Diamond, who plays her onstage, as well as actor Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono. Midway through the two actors’ duet of “I Got You Babe” the real Cher, clad in sparkling pants and a purple fur vest, appears and replaces Diamond to finish the duet.

The singer also joined the cast for a performance of “If I Could Turn Back Time,” with the three actresses that portray her – Stephanie J. Block, Teal Wicks and Diamond – kicking off the song before Cher took the lead and the cast harmonized on the chorus.

Lightly Child, Lightly.


Very interesting! … ‘Lori Gottlieb, from her new book titled Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, HER Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed’ …

Live & Learn

Once outside, I quicken my step as I head to my car. I have patients to see at the office, people like me, all of us trying our best to get out of our own ways. The light on the corner is about to change so I run to catch it, but then I notice the warmth on my skin and I stop at the curb, tilting my face to the sun, soaking it in, lifting my eyes to the world. Actually, I’ve got plenty of time.

Lori Gottlieb, from her new book titled Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, HER Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed. Chosen as one of Amazon’s top 10 Books of the Month for April 2019.
