Last Word

Bill Lyon wrote his last regular column in today's Philadelphia Inquirer. Whether you loved him over the years, hated him over the years, or maybe only glanced over his columns from time to time, I recommend checking his final column out. Maybe I'm just a sucker for a genuine, heartfelt farewell coupled with a trip down memory lane, I don't really know. I always considered Bill Lyon one of us - (ok maybe one of us who happens to express his thoughts in a more flowery language than the rest of us) a true fan who was elated when our teams won and, more often than not, crushed when they broke our hearts. His column, again whether you loved it or hated it, was always there. Now it won't be. Thanks Bill.
