R.I.P. Phil

Hall of Famer Phil Rizzuto has gone to the great baseball stadium in the sky. Here's one of his "poems":
The Bridge
Two balls and a strike.
You know what they had on TV today, White?
Bridge on the River Kwai
Everybody should have gotten an Academy Award for
that movie.
I don't know how many times I've seen it.
About forty times.
Alec Guinness!
William Holden!
Three and one the count.
I just heard somebody whistle.
You know that song?
That's what they whistle.
Nobody out.
And he pops it up.
(from O Holy Cow! The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto)
