Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

Today’s column …


is on Lou Piniella, and the time I interviewed him as he urinated, smoked a cigrette and ate a hoagie.

A one-of-a-kind man who will be missed.

PS: A side thought: When I was a kid growing up in New York, Lou Piniella and Bucky Dent went thought of as baseball studs. I actually forgot that, in his 20s and 30s, Piniella was an extremely handsome guy. Then I saw the photo above. Dashing dude who the ladies absolutely loved.
