Porter Honored

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

"I feel as well now as I have in a long time," he said. "I feel inner peace right now. No anger."

He looked again to Linda, who said, "It's the most amazing thing, the peace he has had. He even sleeps well. He's embracing life."

For now, it won't include the Dodgers, not even for a night. They have asked if he would come to a game, where they would honor his 28 years with them. Porter shook his head slowly. No noise. No spotlight.

"I really think we're past that," he said. "I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that. That's over. We will just go on."

Even if he wasn't exactly Ross Porter as we remembered him, he will be again soon. In the meantime, there'd be nothing wrong with pulling for the announcer and the man.

"Believe me," Scully said, "we have not heard the last from [Ross Porter]."

- Tim Brown in the Times, reporting on Ross Porter's induction into the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
