I was having a hard time deciding which photo to use for Tom Kelly's manager card, so I solicited my friends' opinions on Facebook.  The options were a smiling, champagne-soaked TK holding the 1987 World Series Trophy or surly, older TK in his office, sucking on a stogie.  The stogie shot was the unanimous choice.

In hindsight, I'm not even sure why I needed the second opinion.  Everyone knows Kelly was the man who led us to the only two major pro sports titles in our state's history -- I'm not sure I would classify '50s era NBA as a "major" pro sport.  The stogie shot says a thousand more words about the great Mr. Kelly.
