THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 MUSINGS | FROM PAGE 3 • Harry Belafonte's passing just appeared on my news feed. Another sad day for this country. Another real live American/Global hero has left the building. I was blessed to have Harry Belafonte on my turntable for all these years. Actually since 1976 while crate diving at a record store on Irving St in Malden and discovering 1957's 'Belafonte Sings of the Caribbean.' I loved the cover. I loved his swagger! Then his voice captivated me. Then I discovered what an amazing life he led. Thank you, Mr. Belafonte, your good deeds are left for all to admire. • Facebook can be annoying, toxic, and wonderful. All in the same scroll! The wonderful took place on Tuesday April 25th as Dave Caiazzo posted pictures and videos of his book reading at the library the night before. Dave is a sweetheart of a man which belied his intensity and competitiveness whenever he took the mound. The picture I liked best was a group photo. In the picture was one of Cai's besties John "Trixie" Trischitta, Cai, Mayor Christenson, Joe Levine, Jack Harold, and Bobby McCarthy. Joe (1st base) and Jack (3rd base) were teammates together on the Colonels back in their Babe Ruth League days. Trixie was a legend for the Hosmer Chiefs in the Inter City League. Bobby McCarthy was a stud hockey player back in his high school days.A great group of guys supporting a fi rst-class gentleman with an amazing baseball career and life. • Maldonians are still grieving the loss of Karen Anderson. She was such an ingrained Page 15 member of our community, it's hard to believe she's no longer with us. City of Malden Parking Director and Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer Ron Hogan had this to say about Karen: "Karen was truly one of a kind, and as dedicated a public servant as you will ever fi nd. She cared for Malden and its residents like few others have, and it was an honor to call her not only a coworker, but a friend. Karen, rest in peace my friend. You'll be missed." • A young woman walks by me at Stop & Splurge. I smiled, but it was not at the young lady. It is at the Floramo's Restaurant sweatshirt she had on. A sign of the (growing older) times? • Separated at birth? City of Malden Animal Control Offi - cer Kevin Alkins as pictured in last week's Malden Advocate and Telly Savalas aka Kojak? • Speaking of Malden Youth Lacrosse, we would be remiss if we did not mention MVCS alumni and the first woman in MYL history to play D1 lacrosse (UMass Lowell), Daniela D'Alleva. As Peter Falk's iconic TV character 'Columbo' would say "Just one more thing sir" - I am not sure how this game could possibly have been played with only one basketball. But it was. The 'Malden Rec All-Stars' played the 'Somerville Rec All-Stars' at the Linden Gym on April 3rd, 1980. Yeah, 43 years ago if you can believe that! I kept score along with Larry "Leezard" Gilbert. The Malden Men's Recreational Basketball League was one of THE best men's hoop leagues in the Greater Boston area. Joe Gaff ey was the head of the Rec Dept in those days (he was no Joe Levine, but he was very good - insert smi4.75 9 Month CD Savings make dreams possible. 50+ Job Seekers Networking Group info NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE SAVING FOR, THIS RATE IS HARD TO IGNORE.

Malden won handily 9888 and, from what I remember, the game will not go down in hoop history for the defense played that night. Rod "Puggy" Forbes led Malden with 26 points. Puggy was so good he could score 26 in his sleep. Medford's Tommy Ryser, who played for Henry's Caterers, scored 24. Tommy, who married 1973 Malden High School star athlete, Patty DiPietro of the Edgeworth DiPietro's, was another guy that made scoring 20 look easy. Dennis Cakert had 18 points. Dennis was a New Jersey transplant who played D1 ball at St Joe's. Dennis was a monster on the court. Nobody tougher, nobody smarter, nobody handsomer (just ask him). Mark Burns had 10 points. Anybody who knows Bunza knows that he earned each one of those buckets. Malden Catholics' Steve Johnson had 16 points. This Melrose resident was one of the grittiest, most intelligent players to hail from Melrose, ever.Cliff Cioffi had 2 points. The last time Choff scored only 2 points was most likely in the 3rd grade. Amazingly John Stanasek had 4 points. You read that right, 2 fi eld goals. Stana was one of the best pure shooters to ever play hoops in Malden and his prowess on the gridiron is stuff of legend. Jay Sweeney and Joe Bartoszewicz were no shrinking violets on the court either, yet they could only manage 4 points apiece. Again, it is very - VERY hard to believe that only one ball was used for this game!
