  • I had given one of my best sermons ever, though the phone, I discovered, had gone dead.
  • John Franco, the New York Mets Hall of Famer, had 424 saves in his major league baseball career — the most ever by a left-hander — but arguably none was bigger than his save of the Writers’ bruised egos Saturday in the 68th Artists and Writers Softball Game.
