Thurman Munson

While our favourite furry Munson takes his name directly from the home of the baristaz, you can follow the name trail further.

Munson's was named after a dog (a golden retriever IIRC) who was in turn named after the late New York Yankees pitcher, Thurmon Munson, who died in a self-piloted plane-crash, thirty years ago this week.  A new biography has just been released. I'm not a baseball fan, so this is just an FYI rather than an appeal to add it to my Xmas list.

Maybe one day our Munson will get his own bio, that is if I can manage to complete the volume about Bondi.
