I remember an important baseball game in High School. Our best pitcher was either late or missing. We were sweating hard. Then, we saw a
cloud of dust flying up down the road. Then we recognized his car and him driving up!!!! Whew!! Here He Comes, the coach shouted!!
…….. We lost anyway ?
My father was a huge supporter of Dwight D. Eisenhower after the WWII when he ran for President. At one time in the campaign, he came through
Greensboro. My father would have broken through the gates of Hades to get to the rally. As the train came into the train station, the shout went
up, “Here He Comes!”
My father took me to the GGO when I was a young kid. We “parked” ourselves at a position that had good views of two greens and two tees.
One of the greens was at the end of a dog-leg Par 5. We watched as this Huge, Huge, crowd came around the corner of the Par 5.
It was Arnie’s Army (Arnold Palmer). The cry came up all around the area, “Here He Comes!”
Anyone have any idea what I am going to preach about? Right = Here He Comes!
