Happy Birthday Mick
The late great Mickey Mantle would have been 86 today.
I still think Peyton Manning is jealous of baseball players with all that champagne and Budweiser
The more things change the more they stay the same. I didn’t see this one live, because I was glued to the football game, but it was nice flipping over and seeing the celebration.
Of course the 2017 version is missing Vin Scully, wasn’t in the World Series, so there is no way it can compare.
29 years ago tonight, Jesus that makes me feel old. There was a magical feeling when Kirk Gibson came out of the dugout in Game 1 of the ‘88 World Series.
Goose bumps just typing about it.
“High fly ball into right field. She is gone!“
– Vin Scully
16 years ago tonight, Mike Piazza hit one of my favorite home runs of all time. A) It meant so much to New York City, and the nation following the 9/11 attack B) It was against the hated Braves.
Giving the topic a quick thought, the hobbled Kirk Gibson hitting that pinch hit home run in game one of the ‘88 World Series is the only one that comes to mind, and it gave me goose bumps just typing this paragraph. Oh to be 16 and in love with baseball again.
