1988 Knights

The Knights had a chance to clinch in the first game of the final series with the Dodgers, BUT:

New Orleans threatened in the 9th against Jay Howell. The score stood 5-4 and the fans were in “Here we go again” mode. Howell let the first man on, then a base hit put men on first and second. The fans started up again when number two hitter Daley stepped up. Howell fooled him on a changeup, though, inducing him to foul out to catcher Mike Scioscia. David Lee strode to the plate as the...

Still, Knight fans turned out in droves. The team hit the 2 million mark for the 4th time in the past five seasons. Several times the Superdome was packed to the rafters, with fans making so much noise it seemed to threaten to blow the roof off of the joint.

The final weekend series saw the Knights with a record of 94-65 going into the three game set with the Dodgers. L.A. was sitting in second at 92-67, two games off the pace. Knight fans’ cuticles were chewed down to the core as...

New Orleans Knights

And now I will post a story from the history of the New Orleans Knights baseball team. They came into existence in 1892, when the National League expanded to 12 teams. They were in the NL for many years but could never win very many pennants. Their last one was in 1958, when a confluence of events occurred-all the Knights' old men and youngsters got it together and produced a season like no other-winning streaks of 18 and 17 games helped to produce a record of 110-44. They went to the World Series...

Knight fans, for their own part, felt their nerves frayed raw toward the end of the season. As the season wore on and the lead changed hands several times, most couldn’t help but wonder when the other shoe was going to drop and the Knights would blow it. The memory of the great “Lost Weekend” of 1982 still rankled many. That was the time that the team needed just one win in their final three games of the season to salt away the division crown from the Atlanta Braves, who had opened the season 13-0...

My own blog! Pretty cool. I'll just use this to record whatever is on my mind, I guess. I hope one or two people stop by to read this. On second thought, don't. With some of the stuff I plan on posting here, you will see how truly pathetic my life is. So what should I do, write what is in my head, or groan about how I need a date in the worst way? One correlates with the other, sadly.

Blog. I like that word. Sounds like the title of a grade Z horror flick with bad dialogue and hammy...
