Merry Christmas. And Happy Birthday to Rickey Henderson, too.
In Rickey's honor:
Henderson is in spring training with the San Diego Padres late in his career, and he's getting on the bus for their first road game of the exhibition season.
Uncertain of the protocol on his new team, and not wanting to disrupt any veteran's accustomed preferences, he ask, "Where do I sit?"
Fellow veteran outfielder Steve Finley replies: "Sit anywhere you want, Rickey, you've got tenure."
Henderson gives Finley a puzzled look. "Tenure? Rickey got 16, 17 year."
