In Memory of Phil Rizzuto

Phil Rizzuto died yesterday at the age of 89. In honor of his life, I’d like to share my favorite memory of Phil.

Billy is at the blackboard. The class watches.

Ms Vaughn: Rirruto?

Billy: Those are zees.

Ms Vaughn: They look like r’s to me.

Billy: That’s not fair! Rizzuto is not a word, he’s a baseball player!

So long, Phil.
