Saw this lovely article today by one of the country's best sports writers. It sounds like 1924 rivaled 1991 for excitement!

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

Thank you. That article was incredibly good. The "old buzzard" versus the "punk kid"; Bill Terry, Hack Wilson, Walter Johnson and the rest of the hall of famers. 

 

It was so good it almost makes up for no baseball. In some ways, it's better.

More from the Post: It looks l like you can now rent the Blue Wahoos' stadium in Pensacola through Airbnb to stay overnight and have a whiffle ball game on the field!

Thanks for pointing out the article!
