Must be Christmas, because everywhere I turn I see a clause:


Quote:
He burst onto the big-league scene as a flame-throwing, 17-year-old Iowa farm boy, striking out 15 batters in his very first start, and until he died Wednesday night at 92, Bob Feller never stopped throwing high hard ones as a Hall of Fame pitcher who won 266 games, a World War II hero with five campaign ribbons and eight battle stars, and a grizzled and grumpy retiree who feuded with Jackie Robinson, jabbed at Muhammad Ali and slammed modern-day players as "the shameless instant gratification generation."
[Daily News]

[Since updated, and now two sentences.]
