Rick Garcia Remembers Penny Marshall

Penny Marshall LOVED sports! One night I was covering Dodgers VS Giants. Barry Bonds was on a quest to break the single season home run record. I’d see Penny often at various sporting events in LA while I was covering the games. On this night at Dodger Stadium she invited me to sit with her. For 9 innings we chatted up a storm. Everything sports. She was an encyclopedia and so charming! I had a bit of a cold and the crowd was loud and so I started to lose my voice. Still, I had to go on the air for my nightly sportscast after the game. But my voice was completely gone in the first sentence. The weather guy had to step in and finish the sportscast.
It was sooo worth it! RIP Penny.
