I don't like his politics but I love when he writes about the Sox. This is a good one. (I did not know Billy Pierce lost one on a chalk-raiser.)

Thanks for the link. I thought about it too that it was fitting that the catch was made right by Billy Pierce's picture.:cool:

Very well done. I especially liked the bit about Hawk giving all of us permission to make the calls that needed to be made. I was in Iowa on business when it went down, so I needed those calls to my wife and brothers to feel like a part of it.

Great article. I liked the part about Obama supposedly slamming down the red phone.

"Baseball history is important to fans. We crave it and pass it down as if we're Irish monks saving civilization." Great stuff.
