Rickey being Rickey

Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice headline the Class of 2009 at today's induction ceremonies at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. Rickey was a first-ballot shoo-in; Rice got the nod in his fifteenth and final year of eligibility.

Henderson got 94.7% of the vote. Excuse me? Who didn't vote for Rickey? That's like not voting for jelly in the "what else should I put in my peanut butter sandwich?" vote.

On an MLB network commercial, someone does the funniest imitation of Rickey Henderson hitting a home run. Also, on that commercial, Rickey teaches a trick on how not to get picked off 2nd that stuns the retired players he's talking to. He's one of a kind.
