Thoughts for today from baseball's Mickey Rivers

"I don't get upset over things I can't control, because if I can't control them there's no use getting upset. And I don't get upset over the things I can control, because if I can control them there's no use in getting upset."

Looking for the exact quote here, I chanced to find that Mickey Rivers's real name is John Milton Rivers. I know we all lost a little paradise when Mickey stopped making hits and being more chance to hear gems like this one.

"Me and George and Billy are two of a kind."

- Mickey on his relationship with George Steinbrenner and Billy Martin.

Sounds wacky, but there's more than a kernel of truth to it!
