first favorite athlete. rip, tom seaver.
Kids got out of class At my jr high school to go to the 69 World Series
just saw a ticket stub for an upper deck seat for the 69 series which was $8 or around $56 in current prices. tried to find something similar for last years world series, it was $130 in houston which actually isnt bad assuming you could get a ticket before they got to the secondary market, then it was around $400 for a similar seat.
just to keep mike interested, he also had a small vineyard.
just to keep Dave interested not only do I know that but I have been 1 foot away from him* at the launch of his first vintage that I personally sold in a small town called NYC.....
* if memory seves me the launch was on CPWest at a restaurant he owned
skinny for the win
couldnt find anything about a restaurant he owned not that he might not have been an investor of one.
but really i won. look at all these clicks! just wait til i monetize them.
how was his wine or do you only represent the best so even the question is offensive?
asked my father. he went to the game five clincher. here is not only the broadcast but pregame chatter with mickey mantle and sandy koufax.
TV without the graphics, weird. I want my ADD.
the pitching on the team was outstanding led by seaver but as im watching some of the game i was noticing how bad the lineup was. in fact it was historically bad.
i know they had replay ability but maybe they couldnt do them in real time. its weird to watch controversial plays and wait for the replays and they never came. the famous cleon jones shoe polish play happened in this game which i think led to a run. ball hit him in the foot. initially not given the base but when they examine the ball it had polish on it which is weird to think they polished cleats.
nope, i was just watching further on. they had instant replay. cant imagine why they didnt show the shoe play.
remember that one. looking at his wiki he was in the edgar winter group which you probably know and wrote free ride.
So now that I am back to normal.......I met Tom in California. The NYC lunch was w/ Rusty Staub.
i ate at rusty's. had a t-shirt for many years. says it closed in 91. was it prior to that or elsewhere? those are some quality mets interactions. did you take steroids with mike piazza? that would really round out the list.
All steroids were marshalled for and dispensed during R's soccer career.
The lunch was at Mickey Mantle's CPS, I remember it all now inc being laughed that we are lunching on Yankee turf....
I was at Yankee Stadium when he won his 300th game while pitching for the White Sox. It happened on Phil Rizzuto Day, and totally upstaged poor old Phil.
Dan Hartman wore his Bass (all in one) jumpsuit when I saw the EWG play the Frankenstein tour. Summer ‘73 at the west Palm Beach sportatorium. They opened for ELO. Rick Deringer was the star guitarist in EWG.
