Munson: A part of the people, that's how I'd like to be remembered

Larry recorded a message a few years back, and they played it at his memorial service today. It was moving stuff, my friends. An excerpt:
"Some people have called my homer style 'old school.' I think I'd call it a will to win. ... I've pulled my insides out trying to win. Being a part of the fans and a part of the people, that's the way I'd like to be remembered. ... I hope Bulldog fans remember I was always looking out for them."
Thank you, Larry. Thank you.

Update: The Athletics Association has video of Munson's eulogy up now. It's not to be missed.
