Goose Shot Down, Again

Sadly, Rich "Goose" Gossage was not elected into baseball's Hall of Fame today. Fellow relief pitcher Bruce Sutter was, but he's the only one to pass muster this year.

I was really hoping that Gossage would get past the gatekeepers, mostly because he deserves it (disparaging the morons who mind the gate is way too easy, and won't be done here), and also because he saved the first game I ever attended, a Yankees win over the White Sox sometime in the early 80s. Oh, and also because Goose is a great nickname and he looks like a happy walrus.
