This just in: Dodger blue bleeder Tommy Lasorda loves The Dick.

Yep, it's true. Upon coming to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda--or what the hep cats call The Dick--the Dogs' former manager was heard to remark, "This place is beautiful."

He was there for the new, 4,100-square-foot exhibit "Play Ball! Presidents and Baseball."

"Brings back a lot of great memories," said Lasorda while looking at the photos and memorabilia, as relayed by The Dick's PR bat boys.

"Dick Nixon knew baseball," Lasorda is said to have said of the 37th president, who he regarded as a friend. "It's a great feeling when you're standing next to the president of the United States. Tremendous people and all great baseball fans."

As a former pitcher, Lasorda shared something in common with Nixon: both hit the showers before their games were over.

It puzzles me when anyone waxes sentimental about Richard Nixon...but that's not quite as incomprehensible to me as folks worshiping Ronald Reagan. ::shudder::
