So two nights ago I’m hosting a benefit cabaret for lung cancer that honors Jerry Remy. And it was my pleasure to present him with the award. But first there’s this raffle, and the prizes were two baseballs autographed by the president of RED SOX NATION.   In the heat of the moment,  I  I didn’t realize I was holding one of the prizes, and when it came time to hand it over  to the raffle winner, I couldn’t find it. Then I realized it was in my right hand. And I hear myself saying, onstage, before a packed house, “I guess I didn’t want to let go of one of Jerry Remy’s balls.”

Enough said.
