My Hero, Mickey Mantle

Mickey Mantle was my first sports hero as a child. He was not only a top-level athlete, he was a major classy guy, as well. Years later, I was blessed to be able to live in NYC, and ate at Mickey's restaurant twice. He being an actual businessman, was there each time, as he was almost every day, ensuring firsthand the operation continued to meet his highest standards of quality. Seventeen years ago today Mickey left earth. He will live as a champion in our hearts forever.
