Hey there Guy.

Thankfully, we still have the Habs to enjoy in Montreal...
Wait, never mind.

growing up in the early 70's , a stone throw away from Jarry Park (My second home was the left field bleachers known as Jonesville) my childhood heroes were not the Lafleur's, Dryden's or Cournoyer's , My childhood heroes were Rusty Staub , Coco Laboy , John Boccabella , Bob Bailey (who just passed away 2 days ago) , Mack Jones..... Those were the days , Sweet Memories.

Times change, the pay scale changes, concepts, and strategies evolve but at the end of the day it is the same as in 1910 when a pitcher threw the ball and hitter tried to hit it.

Probably next year I'll either start coaching again or ump. No other game like it IMO.
Kershaw getting shelled has become an annual fall ritual. I can't watch Trout since he doesn't play in the postseason when the games are on TV. Maybe some day, but I wouldn't miss the game if it ended. I will always have some of my cards.

Cobb was an failure in the rare World Series competitions that he participated in during his career, but I still think he was a player worth knowing about.

Default Baseball for me

I've been collecting cards since I was a kid.

Played it most of my younger days.

Nothing beats watching a 1-0 game. I voted baseball.

He hit .368 in the 1908 World Series.

I wouldn't take Mary Ann or Ginger. I'd take someone, anyone, who could fix a freakin' hole in a boat!!!!!!

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

I'm so with you. My avatar here originally was an Expos logo.

Sad hear that about Bailey. He was my fave as a young Expos fan. I grew up about a 20 minute walk from the Olympic Stadium, so you know Jarry Park was a long bus, subway, subway, bus ride for me. But I spent a lot of my youth there.
