RIP Greg, this is posted probably for my own personal closure. Greg was involved in the best and worst days of my grade school days. Worst day - 7th grade (Mrs. Higgins): Greg and I were on safety patrol one morning before school. Coolest thing in the world to wear that safety belt. Almost time to be go in for class and last few kids crossing walk. Greg and I doing our thing when Greg decides to add some animated motions to a passing car. A priest was driving the car. By lunch time Mrs Higgins called us up in front of the whole class and stripped us of our belts. I was crushed. Worst day ever! Best day ever - that summer: Little league baseball down at Meriner Park. I had a good arm, played center field. Bases loaded and a kid hits one deep to centerfield, just like The Sandlot, I go back to the metal fence reach up with a brand new baseball glove snag the homerun hit and fire a bullet to third because coaches were sure it was gone and were sending everyone to home. Double play ends the inning and I am sky high. The reason I am telling this - the glove I had was Greg Norman’s. He had just got a brand new glove and told me I could use it that inning. I will always keep that memory. I wouldn’t have made that play if I hadn’t had his new glove.  I still smile to myself when I think of him. Glad to know you are watching over all the rest of your 69 classmates.
