It was sad to see such a great legend go out on a quiet note. I was hoping, as were millions of others, that Ricky would have a Big Hurrah, and would bow out in a blaze of glory, but it was not to be. Just like The Don who was out for a duck in his final appearance, Ricky followed a similar pattern. However, all his achievements will always be remembered, and he was a real pleasure to watch. Good Luck Ricky, may you and your family be blessed with good health, and happiness always. Thanks for the memories.
