Waning Moments

I began writing a column under this title for the Maine Campus in 2002 and have never quite been able to shake the name. With a handle like mine, there aren't a lot of cleverly-turned phrases or pop culture references available, so if you think you may have read something similarly named a handful and a half years ago, you probably did.

Requiem for a knuckleballer

Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield calls it a career
It was a sad day in Boston last week. An era came to an end when knuckleballer Tim Wakefield - the longest-tenured member of the Red Sox - announced his retirement.

We all knew (or at least suspected) that this was coming. The 45-year-old Wakefield's effectiveness has been gradually dwindling over the past few years, and guys simply don't pitch deep into their fifth decade. But there he was, tossing up that beguiling, twisting knuckleball and infuriating all manner of major league hitters.

I'm going to miss him.
