Ron Darling aspired to own a Cadillac . . . in 1982
One more thing related to my Friday newspaper column, which includes an item on 22-year-old Ron Darling saying this about a post-playing career in broadcasting:
"Maybe when I'm 70. I like to think I'll have more useful things to do from the time I'm 40 until I'm 70."
Another line from Darling in that 1982 Newsday article, in which he discusses the money that might be in his future if he gets promoted from Tidewater to the big club:
"The money is secondary, really. I'm a pretty frugal guy, although in New York my frugalities might include a Cadillac."
