    The same. Also, thanks to Deduno I could see my guys get a rare win at Yankee Stadium last summer.

    Yes, of course he was the life of the party; what I meant was that after Puckett was being pilloried by the national media (some of it deserved), it seems that none of his teammates came out and...

    Yes, most of it seemed to be true (although the womanizing was hardly unique to him among ballplayers). But it's strange that I heard nothing negative about Puck from his teammates or coaches, even...

    From my far-afield viewpoint, I thought Harmon had that lack of personality and figured all that "quiet leadership" talk was just talk. Then when I read the tributes during his final illness and...

    Maybe I got you beat since I was at the game (as I've said ad nauseum, I live in NYC). Dragging a couple of friends to see the Twins get beat at Yankee Stadium is what I've been doing for the better...

    Yeah, I get that one, too, although living in New York City, I didn't mind having a couple of Yankees that I could root for. Since my disillusionment came in 1976, when Wynegar was a rookie and...

    The time between the advent of the hideous uniforms and Tony-O's retirement was only 1972 to 1976, so I knew it was Braunie. I believe he yielded his no. 4 to Mauch when he arrived in '76. The weird...
  9. The "ebbs and flows" of long-time fans: When were your Dark Ages?

    ​Thinking about something JB_Iowa said in another thread about being a longtime Twins fan with some "ebbs and flows." Life events usually have something to do with it, as well, but when were you...

    Is he still wearing No. 5? Roy Smalley sure wore it for a lot of years. Before him Danny Thompson, and before him, Leo Cardenas wore it for a year or two. So, maybe you are on to something.

    Thanks. I did start watching on my old clunky work computer (after hours, of course :)). I had only gotten to the second batter (interesting to see superman Yaz sort of bobble the ball) when my...

    I first saw the Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown in 1972. Then it was more like someone’s attic, a real, wonderful hodgepodge of memorabilia. I walked by a case and did a double take when I saw a...

    Me, too! I was in New Jersey following along with my brother who had decided some years earlier to become a Twins fan (he defected as an adult when he moved to Red Sox country, but since he always...

    A gal's opinion agrees fully with all of this. I'd just add that if you judge Carew on the leadership aspect, he might not make my top 10, either.

    I love that answer; it fits me. Maybe, with your permission I'd use it sometime (I hope never because I've been in this job forever and wouldn't even know how to interview for a new one).

    Thought-provoking; I really can't venture an informed opinion, but I'm in NYC and I've had these semi-conscious thoughts. Thanks for saying it.

    I've been moved and delighted by that, too. And I certainly enjoyed watching Frankie Viola watch his daughter compete in the 2012 Summer Games. Weird, unexpected pleasures of being a Twins fan...

    I happened to be at Fenway Park for Mariano’s last visit there in September (“happened” in that I won this in a contest, but that’s a whole ‘nother great story). So, yes, the Sox did the whole...

    I do wish we could reign in the farewell tours. I’m not sure when they got started in modern sports; my guess it was with Wayne Gretzky in 1999. The Great One deserved it, but enough already!

    Interesting, but I'd like more details. The Rangers didn't exist yet, and I think Gaylord was in the National League. Anybody remember who was pitching?

    Oh, dear. That was at Boston? He could have felt like Walter Matthau in movie The Odd Couple, who misses a triple play when Felix calls him.
