Dick Allen Surrounded by …

Dick Allen surrounded by … Allen wrenches!

Allen wrenches! Although, I suppose, if one were so inclined, one could view the above adornments as peckers of a certain crudity — “dicks,” in the parlance of the Teenage Thunderclaps who roam the streets of America in defiance of local curfews — but, no. No, these are Allen wrenches. Dick Allen is surrounded by Allen wrenches.

And may I say he seems content to watch them go by. “This is not so bad,” he seems to be saying. “I’m going to hang with these wrenches for a while and then go do something amazing.”

Cum Posey must make “Car” Cistulli cringe, was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006.

Courier sportswriter Wendell Smith once wrote of Posey: “Some may say he crushed the weak as well as the strong on the way to the top of the ladder. But no matter what his critics say, they cannot deny that he was the smartest man in Negro baseball and certainly the most successful.”

No-one has yet asked; are those the cheapo Allen wrenches that come with cheap furniture, or are they high-quality American-made tool steel?

Important questions!

I knew I was going to see him surrounded by Allens rather than Dicks, but I was really hoping it would just be a collection of photos of famous Allens/Alans. Think Alan Thicke, Alan Alda, Alan Jackson, Steve Allen, Woody Allen, etc.
