Friday night WEEI had 5 hours of Hot Stove Talk with Sean McAdam of the Providence Journal and Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald.

They were knocking the area around USCF so I called and it went like this


Buckley: 2 weeks ago Jim Caple and myself walked 4 blocks SOUTH of The Cell and there was nothing there.

Me. Steve, you have to go 4 blocks west or north.

McAdam I've been going there for 17 years and there is nothing to see.


BTW My wife and I are trying to remember the name of the other bar next to McCuddys and we seem to think it started with a C in the name. What was it?

The bar next to McCuddy's was called O'Briens. Nice place. Not as much character as McCuddy's. I poured beer on Ron Kittle and Julio Cruz at O'Briens after the clincher September 17, 1983.

Danny O'Brien's, to be exact. :smile:

Caple "reviewed" the Cell for ESPN's ballpark ratings series. He took the el directly to the park, left early because of a 3-hour rain delay, and cabbed directly back to his hotel. Somehow, he was able to generate an insightful and objective review of the "Pre-and-postgame bar-and-restaurant scene."

Caple = tool.

Funny. I never hear these people complain about not being able to hang around Yankee Stadium after games.

That is awesome!!! I totally messed up and failed to get Cruz' aoutograph during the reunion a few years ago. I guess I just wasn't thinking or recognize him. My Old Comiskey seat would look much better with his sig on it.:whiner:

Does the Juice still do radio work for the Mariners?

Next time they're in Chicago, tell them to walk 2-3 miles east of Wrigley Field. It'll do us all a favor. :rolleyes:

Great point...Jerome Avenue makes for a lovely family stroll.
