As always - a fitting tribute.

What a fitting tribute to such a wonderful man! I've been thinking all day of how you might do this cartoon and, as always, it is perfect. Thank you!

Very poignant. The Old Lefthander has rounded third and is headed for Home. Thanks Jim.

Jim -- Thank you. A home run, as usual...

An interesting question was raised by one of my-co-workers. Do you ever have obit cartoons (for lack of a better phrase) planned in advance, like how the major networks always seem to have celebrity obits pre-packaged and ready to go? Do you start thinking about them when somebody famous (like Joe) goes into the hospital for a serious condition, etc.? Or are they spontaneous creations, like most everything else? Just curious...

Thanks for the tribute to a great broadcaster and even better man.

His hat is in the wrong hand. Being a left hander myself, the natural move would be to remove and hold the hat in our left hand...

Dear "Cincinattian", you spelled "Cincinnatian" wrong.
See, we all make mistakes.
Great work, Jim.

I'm going to be a major dork here so bear with me, Cincinattian, but Nux's slogan was "Rounding third and heading for home", if the picture above shows what we can only presume to be Nuxhall at third base on his way to home plate, he'd be raising his hat to the fans closest to him (fans closest to third base would, logically, be on the right-hand side of the player), hence Nux holding up his hat with his right hand saluting the fans closest to the field on his way home.

That said, great tribute to one of baseball's classiest acts, Jim!

Has nothing to do with Joe.

But a thought keeps running thru my mind ever since I heard Mr. Bush speaking on his solution to lousy travel situations.

"Oh, my Gawd! W is going "fix" the airlines!"

The Red Sox and Mike Lowell have agreed to a three-year deal that will keep the World Series MVP in Boston, according to baseball sources close to the negotiations. Sources indicate to the AP that the three year deal is worth $37.5 million.

good-bye Indians

Speaking for the baseball fans in and around Pittsburgh we will all miss this true gentleman of baseball and the real image of Cincinnati.
