My hands were nowhere near the mouse or the keyboard. It didn’t just “End Program” or “logoff,” it actually shut completely down—something I never do—all by itself. Obviously this is too painful even for my computer.
    huh...I would have thought it wouldn't have choked until very, very late.

    Thanks for the link. What a treat. Also, what a blast from the past. Weather forecast that expected rain instead of the nice day they got, advert for a gas station that washed your windows "all the time", advert for White Owl cigars, even a guy hustling (Uhlander) and ending up on 3rd on a routine pop fly to right. Thanks again.

    Kaat had won 7 games in Sept and should have pitched on Oct. 1 the last day of the regular season. The video pointed out the 7 victories. He only pitched 2 innings this game but needed an extra day of rest.

    On-topic, I grew up in Indianapolis, so I didn't have a direct rooting interest at the time, and I found the hitless wonder White Sox an interesting story, also the expansion team Angels being in the race until near the end, but ultimately I was one of those lemon-juice pouring young jerks who rooted for the BoSox that year.

    1 / yeah, I'm trolling. Trolling for people to ban!

    Thanks for the youtube link. It was great viewing and it lead me to game 7 of the 1952 World Series -which was even better. In fact , I thought the camera work on the 52 game was better than the 67 one. They even had split screen. So 52 World Series Game 7 is highly recommended. You'll see a 20 year old Mick, Jackie, Scooter, Yogi, Pee Wee, Gil Hodges, Campenelia, Billy, Casey, Duke and the list goes on. At Ebbets field no less with Red Barber and Mel Allen calling the action from the catbird's seat. (don't have link but just google and you'll find it.) Think I'll tell my elected representatives that viewing should be part of all school children's core curriculum.

    You reminded me; if ever I meet any of you folks in person (again, for some) to relate the story about how my wife brought Mickey Mantle in for show and tell to her elementary school.
