    Josh Willingham is not a fast man down the first base line.

    PS. "I know of Vin Scully." Kids, these days.
    I didn't realize he did all of those. But like I said before, I don't really listen to the voice when the play is happening. Also, all of those happened before I was born . Gibson's home run was still five years before I was born.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I believe he was the one that was screaming, "Oh the humanity," when LT snapped Theisman's tibia/fibula like a twig.

    Are these guys going to do anything, or should I go sit on my patio and stare at my garage?

    When the rain delay was made official Mr. Hockey Kevin Gorg says "It's a good thing for the rain delay now, it will allow Hughes to follow his normal pre-game routine"...

    If you saw Game 6 of the 2011 series, then you're good. One of the most exciting baseball games of all time

    Definitely saw that. That was a fun series. The last couple games were crazy
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Were you born old, or just curmudgeonly? You are way too young to make many of the statements you make with regularity

    Oh, you're being given slack. When you're older, you'll know to read between the lines.

    Although I was 5 years old, I remember the day John Lennon was murdered. My parents, were in there early 20's and were weepy, shocked and mourning. It seemed like everyone was depressed for a bit after that happened. That was a crummy time in Western Culture History.

    I was also sad for Bambi when her mother died - I tipped her extra for her couch dance.

    Even the Twigs went "Oh Man" and turned away.

    I definitely wouldn't describe myself as curmudgeonly. I'm not sure what I say that makes me seem old lol

    As for me, my love of Postmodern Jukebox confuses both young and old.
