To All You Jim Smiths, You Lost A Good One


H/T to great friend, Dustbury for this.

The Jim Smith Society Fun fest is happening in Pittsburgh; last year it was here in Oklahoma.

But one Jimmy Smith who isn't there, was my friend.

His name was Jim Smith, and less than two weeks after our 1987 graduation from high school,
Jim Smith was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Jimmy loved the Oakland A's, hunting and motorcycles.
And apparently, hair gel.
I miss my friend; and for his sake, I always root for the
Oakland A's to do well each season.

Aw, damn. Every Jim Smith I ever knew was a sterling sort of fellow; no doubt this one was too.
