More retirement gifts for Bobby Cox

Sep 16, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

It just occurred to me that no one is getting Jerry Manuel, Ken Macha and all those guys parting gifts. Sad, really.

The other day he got a corn maze, today Bobby Cox was surprised with a Delta charter plane painted up with his number 6 for the Braves’ last road trip of the season.  How nice.

But I’m going to be honest: I’m not sure I’d get on an airplane painted up with Braves colors right now.

    Dang Craig, don’t give up on em yet! What if Luke Skywalker gave up on attacking the Death Star b/c he felt it wasn’t as easy as shooting womp rats in beggar’s canyon back on Tattooine? There’d be no “Empire Strikes Back,” that’s what would have happened!

    I think we can arrange to give Jerry Manuel a paper airplane upon his (most likely temporary) forced retirement. We can even write Cox’ #6 on it.

    We can also get the Natinals to write ‘Cocks’ on it.

    c’mon, they were in the fight until September. And they still lead the Wild card spot. not too shabby.
