"Awwww Tom, you're not fun (wink!)"
I know, Ken. That's one of the things I love about this community; It's all in good fun, 99.9% of the time. Actually, there was a time when I, too, was addicted to baseball, but that was when I was playing the game. It helped that my team, the Tigers, who were the AL doormat back in the 50's had a pitcher named Frank Lary who was known as "The Yankee Killer". My Dad used to take me to games when the Yankees were in town and Lary was pitching. We'd get seats right behind home plate(I was a pitcher) and watch the fur fly. I got to see Mantle, Berra, Ford, Rizzuto, et al, along with Kaline, Wertz, Triandos, et al, playing their hearts out for the sheer "love of the game". It shaped my expectations of what baseball should be. After I stopped playing baseball, two things happened that cured me of my addiction: I found out I wasn't much of a spectator and the kind of people playing the game was different. It wasn't fun for me any more. But I still remember, and I know pretty much how you feel. So I hope you get good reception from that radio. Rock on!
