Rickey is Back, and Rickey Wants to Let You Know It


ba-athletics_0500440258After getting the Oakland crowd of 35,067 to once more yell “Run, Rickey, run!” one last time, Rickey Henderson took a moment during the team’s ceremony honoring him by retiring his number to “share a little ‘Rickey-ism.'”

“It was you, the fans, who helped me run to the Hall of Fame,” Henderson said when the chant died down.

“I would like to share a little ‘Rickey-ism,’ ” he said. “Rickey have tears in his eyes. Rickey have love in his heart for you. Rickey is so very, very, very humbled. This is not just Rickey Henderson Day, this is a day for the Oakland A’s fans.”

Thank GOD! After his Hall of Fame speech where he didn’t refer to himself in the third-person ONCE, I was afeared that we might have heard the last of Rickey Henderson talk. Slanch should have known better.
