I was actually going to do this post right after it happened, but it was only a day or two after my other Hero of the Moment post, so I decided to wait on it. Then, I kind of forgot about it. Now, it’s a month later and I finally remembered. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
Scott Entsminger was a man who lived in Mansfield, OH. He passed away on July 4. As far as who he was as a person, or what he did with his life, I only know two things: he was a Cleveland Browns fan and he was married. He’s not my Hero of the Moment for what he did during his life, anyways. He’s my Hero of the Moment for something that he did after he passed away.
I know that Twindaddy normally does these Hero of the Moment posts, but I felt that I needed to do this one. I actually wanted to write this last night, but never got a chance to.
Some of you out there might already know who Homer Bailey is, especially if you’re a baseball fan, or live in the Cincinnati area. For those of you who don’t, Homer Bailey is a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. Tuesday night, he threw the first no-hitter of the season, beating the San Francisco Giants 3-0. While being able to throw a no-hitter in the major leagues is a rare and special thing (it’s actually the 2nd one Bailey has thrown), it is not why he is my Hero of the Moment. What he did after the game is why he’s my Hero of the Moment.
