I have the plaque up here in my office. It started coming up from the sidewalk, I guess early winter. Rather than have it be a hazard I took it up. It will be re-installed when next round of inductees go in sometime this summer. Throughout the years the sidewalk expands and contracts at different rates than the metal [from the plaques], so every so often they need to be re-poured and a section needs to be taken up. Don't worry, Lou will be back for sure.
