This year is the 40th Anniversary of the first year (1966) that Janet Lynn skated in Senior Nationals at age 12.

It is also my 50th consecutive season as a Cincinnati Reds fan, and tonight I just saw Ken Griffey, Jr. hit a 3-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th inning against Washington - a team managed by Frank Robinson, who was a Reds player in that first season I was a Reds fan - 1957!

(I just thought I'd sneak that in there, guys! )
