    nailed it with the inscription on Stan's statue:

    "Here stands baseball's perfect warrior.  Here stands baseball's perfect knight".

    It's hard to believe but baseball fans in 1999 failed to elect Stan to the All-Century team.  I'm no fan of Bud Selig but he did the right thing there by adding Stan to the list.  

    I'm sure Stan greeted St. Peter with a "whaddayasay, whaddayasay" and then pulled out his harmonica and played some Wabash Cannonball.
