Thanks, Fens. I enjoyed that.

I know that you are enjoying things at this time (Red Sox, Patriots, BC). These are excellent days in New England.

:cool:

That was great, what memories of the golden age of baseball. Thanks Fenway. By the way I cant figure you out,are you a White or Red Sox fan or both. Who did you pull for in 2005 in the 1st round of the playoffs.

I lived in Chicago for many years and the White Sox are my solid #2 team.

Let us just say I was not happy at this moment

I was very happy at that moment.
Do Red Sox fans have anything like White Sox Interactive?

A few but they make the mistake of allowing politics

Actually you find a lot of Red Sox fans on nyyfans.com of all places

A lot of my golf cronies are Red Sox fans, my best friend is from Rockport. Needless to say Ive heard a lot of Red Sox in your face stuff this year. 2 more games and it will be the Patriots for the rest of the year.

The last 15 years a lot of Boston fans have bought homes near Ft Myers.

I actually miss Winter Haven as the traffic on Cleveland Ave during spring training is horrific.

The traffic is horrible all over SW Florida, us fulltimers dread Season down here when all the snowbirds make the migration from the north. Traffic goes from bad to impossible.

OMG was that fun to see.




It goes to show that speech from "Field of Dreams" is true. (Matter of fact, I've been inspired again.)

"This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again."


Thanks for getting me thinking positive again about White Sox baseball, and this great game in general.

Man, this winter can't go by quick enough.

Golden stuff. Someone should give Al Helfer's phone number to Brooks.

When I think of refreshment, the first thing that comes to mind is shaving.

Billy had quite a few endorsement deals in his playing days:

His cigarette (http://www.archive.org/details/tobacco_ule13d00b) was Camel ("A Real Smoke"), and here's (http://www.tias.com/3943/PictPage/1920819237.html) what he looked like after a shower ...

Old timers will recognize the spokesman for Camels as actor James Daly (father of Tyne Daly). He's probably best known for the "Willoughby" episode on Twilight Zone, although he starred on the Medical Center TV series for several years.
