America's Pastime

this was always my favorite.

From 62-66 or so, I listened to the Dodger games every night either as I did my homework or as I lay in bed to fall asleep. You could pick up KFI in SLC after the sun went down. After Koufax retired I was not as devoted, but I remember listening to Drysdale’s scoreless inning streak in 68.

Living in 1978 is kind of like BYU fans living in 1984. The pain of that one 1978 home run by an obscure journeyman player - known only for that homer - was erased in 2004. Four straight against the Bronx franchise to win the pennant (first time ever any team had done that after being down 3-0) and then four straight again to win the Series. The Bronx franchise’s luck against the Sox ended then, never to return. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Pretty neat, even though I’m the farthest thing from a NY fan. I can respect greatness when I see it.

How does a Yankees fan change a light bulb? They don’t, they just sit around and talk about how good the old one was.
