The Man in Black when
|The 2:30 pm "The Man in Black" show yesterday at Jupiter's Casino|
"63 Not Out"
about the score Phil Hughes was on when he was bowled the ball that would end his life.
I thought about my blogging buddy in the UK who writes a blog titled
67 Not Out
|Opening scene from Forrest Gump|
I couldn't help but think how eerie Mike's blog title would have been if Hughesy had of hit one more 4 before that tragic ball was bowled.
But there are always plenty of "what ifs" to ponder when something like this happens.
And nothing can ease the pain of a young man like Phil passing away like that.

I expect there would be a few white feathers floating around the SCG and other places today, as well.
Phillip Hughes’ 63 runs the new retiring score for junior cricketers as a salute to the fallen hero
HE will forever be 63 not out. Wearing black armbands, junior cricketers walking out to bat this weekend will be allowed to retire on 63, not the traditional 50, to mark the score Phillip Hughes reached in Tuesday’s Sheffield Shield match before he faced the bouncer which ended his life.
