One More Cal Tribute Piece

Ok, damn it. I wasn't going to post anymore links to gushing Cal Ripken articles on the eve of his induction (He was inducted, duh, this afternoon) but here's one more.

It's a reprint of an SI article from the 1995 season just before Cal breaks the consecutive games played streak and it reminds one (especially the stuff on page four of the article) of why O's fans and baseball fans in general loved to cheer Cal so much.

Congratulations Cal. As if you really needed to wait for the writers to approve you, you have officially joined the game's immortals.
