KANSAS CITY -- Not that it matters much, but I don't believe that I've been in this room for 10 years. It's smaller than I remember. Ten years. It seems impossible that much time has gone by. But calendars reject sentiment. Ten years ago today, Buck O'Neil died. He was 94 years old. He was a month away from 95. He had been sick for two months. Somehow, it still felt sudden.
