    Many happy returns, Flash!

    Sorry I'm late... but the thought is sincere!

      Beats the heck out of October 25th (mine). Yup, that's right, I got Game 6 (1986) on my 18th B-Day.

      Happy (belated) birthday, FG!
      "I believe in the Church of Baseball. I tried all the major religions and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I learned that, I gave Jesus a chance." ~Ron Shelton, from Bull Durham

        This is only tangentially related, but...when Flash Gordon would enter Red Sox games, did the team play the Flash Gordon song by Queen??
        I don't believe so, but then I never saw him pitch live. I spent half of 1998 (his biggest year) following him on the Internet from Germany. One of my top regrets.
