I told the limousine driver to please stop so I could sit in the front seat with him. I just started talking to him about life and just wanted to know, ‘is there more to life than this?’ We just won the World Series, and the streets aren’t paved gold, and I’m not riding on clouds but I feel just as miserable now as I did before. And so we got to the George Washington Bridge and I told him to stop. You take them home, and I’m gonna jump. I said I’m done.”

 An ex-Yankee, on the line between life and death. 

Caveat: He's now a pastor.

Can't get it on my semi-functional computer, Duque—could you send the link?

And is it Daryl Strawberry?

It's not the destination that counts. It's the journey itself. Enjoy the ride.

There's an old story about a Taoist disciple who reportedly had achieved enlightenment. So his colleague went to see him. The colleague was surprised to see the the enlightened one did not appear to be very happy. And, indeed, when asked "how do you feel?", the enlightened one replied "just as miserable as ever."

Wow. I think he had suicidal thoughts because he kept slipping back and forth between dimensions. Dan Faulty is one of the very, very few Yankees from the last 55 years I don't remember AT ALL.

Well, glad he didn't jump!
