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.

“She i-i-i-is… GONE!!!” 

Vin Scully, 10/15/88

It’s really hard to comprehend that this event is nearly 30 years old.  Just simply mind-numbing crazy.

It’s still the 2nd best highlight of homecoming weekend, coming in behind trashing some team 70-0 the night before. It was still the highlight of “dance night”, since most of the dates were a bit pissed off we left the dance early for the World Series ”after party”.  Such a pretty pretty dress. 

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!“
