    We surfed hurricane Gloria in Sept of 85. The cops were angry, but not enough to come out and get us.

    Should we start a drinking game today? So far Bert called Ellsbury Girardi and Dick called Dozier Jeter. Let's see if anyone can stay sober based on errors by these guys

    So it is a fairly recent 'thing.' I especially like this quote ... heh ... re farewell tours ... "the whole thing evokes this creepy feeling that the phenomenon might become a ritual: The annual Diet Pepsi/Doritos Farewell Tour."

    Pictures and/or video would be appreciated. I'd even pay to see that one.

    Ripken did have one (and got some fairly nice foundation donations):

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/b...5645.htmlstory


    But the deluge of the last 3 years is pretty rare. Like I say, I could have seen one for Thome even though he spent time w/different teams at the end.

    I think the league would have liked to honor him that way but I also think he's the type who wouldn't have wanted the pomp and circumstance.

    It was awesome. It hit Long Island and Connecticut. We were in Newport.

    There was no video in the (18)70's.

    figured I'd take the shot before someone else could

    Yep ... this is what I was thinking when you first suggested Thome in this regard. But one thing the other article pointed out was that those of the last 3 years ... Jeter, Rivera and Jones ... were not just great in baseball, had long careers, but were with one team, being synonymous with their respective teams. And that could be said of Ripken as well. Thome didn't have that 'synonymity.' Also, he never 'announced' his retirement prior to a season ... he just kind of ... was done.

    Why did Gardy get tossed?

    Gardy must have wanted out of the heat and humidity today.

    meh ... nowadays something could be made, taking some photos and putting it together. Still ... it's something I'd pay to see. Even without the buffalo herd .. just you on roller skates. (hmmm ... another ModCon possibility?)
