    Yes. They keep using that word. I don't think it means what they think it means.

    Ichiro even has his own impersonator who was once actually ejected from Safeco for interfering with a foul ball.

    Hilarious! I am still guffawing over that! Good job Allie and Cap!

    I would like to hang around with David Freese, the Cardinals 2011 postseason hero (among many others). My cousin was a Marine Corps recruiter in St Louis (great job for another lifelong Redbirds fan) for years, and in 2012 he was on the field in a salute to our military men and women. Anyway, he got a chance to pal around with a few of the Cardinals and was real impressed with Berkman, Carpenter and Freese. Actually, earlier that summer, he and I were talking about which Cardinals jersey he was going to buy with that World Series Champions patch. We are both huge fans of all those guys mentioned along with a few others, but he made up his mind that day. He said Freese was an outstanding young guy who was very respectful for all the military personnel there, and Freese even asked my cousin for an autograph!

    I know a lot of athletes in all sports support the military, and even visit the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan (Tommy LaSorda came to see my unit in Afghanistan in 2009). I am thankful of their support in our dangerous endeavors, and therefore would like to meet Freese, shake his hand, thank him for the great memories and especially to thank him for treating my cousin so well that day on the field of Busch stadium. That is true class, even if he has had some issues in the past. Then again, a lot of people have issues they have to deal with.

    Here's to another fine season for my 3B, David Freese! Thanks buddy, keep it up!

    Easiest question I've seen on this site...

    Give me the core members of the '93 Phillies. Daulton, Kruk, Schilling, Dykstra, Mitch, and whoever else wants to hang out. All of these guys had experiences of elation and frustration and love to party. I couldn't think how much fun that night would be and how much trouble we'd get into.

    Always thought Ted Simmons was the one guy who was for sure not an empty suit, intellectually. And Whitey Herzog, of course, who although not an intellectual in the conventional sense, has one of the most curious, seeking minds that I have ever witnessed. He really and truly is like a white rat seeking an elusive cheese.

    I was an out-of-control, hard partying, rebel without a clue in high school when these guys won the NL pennant in 1993. I wanted to hang around with them and raise some Cain as well! I thought the story about Nails telling an elected official (in an uppity restaurant where Dykstra's party was acting like morons) who asked that they tone down their obnoxious behavior, "I'll drop you, dude." was the greatest thing ever back then. Stick to the man, Nails! It was a fun, yet embarrassing, time in my life as I look back now.

    Putting dykstra and mitch in the same room may be bad...I believe they hate each other...I think they got into it recently at an autograph signing...of course, I could be wrong

    Maybe I was right?

    Maybe something is wrong with my laptop, because it keeps bringing me to the youtube page to search for videos.

    It took me to the home page too, but there was a video there recommended for me of "Spill The Wine", by Eric Burdon and War, so it wasn't a total waste of time.

    I did, that's how I got the link I posted. That link takes me to the video. Your link takes me to the YouTube home page, even though the URL looks identical. Somebody who's better versed in computer technology needs to explain how that happens, my brain hurts from thinking about it.
