I guess I'll just hope he snaps out of the funk. And it is currently a really bad funk.

This from sportcyclopedia.com:


1969: Opening Day draws one of the largest crowds in Senators history, as DC Stadium is renamed RFK stadium in honor of former US Senator, and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968 during a run for the presidency, a roll (sic) his brother had held until he was assassinated in Dallas in 1963. Another draw to RFK Stadium was new Manager Ted Williams, who many consider the greatest hitter of all-time. The move worked out as the Senators finish above .500 for the first time while finishing in 4th Place in the AL East with a record of 86-76. Leading the way is Frank Howard, who finishes with 48 homers and places 4th in the MVP voting. Meanwhile, Dick Bosman wins the era title at 2.19.

Marty's asking the beat writers if they sucked up to the GM of the Nationals this weekend.

He's doing a loyalty check.

Yesterday he said that Bowden really wanted Frank Robinson to quit and wouldn't let him a have a "managers show" which would allow Robinson to make some extra money.

JFK was in Philly--from Wikepedia


John F. Kennedy Stadium (originally known as Philadelphia Municipal Stadium, later also referred to as JFK Stadium) was an open-air stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that stood from 1925 to 1992. It was a classic 1920s-style design, consisting of a horseshoe surrounding a track and football field, with bleachers at the open end. The stadium once sat 100,000 to 110,000 people, but in later years had a capacity of about 75,000.

The stadium was in South Philadelphia along Broad Street. In one sense, it was decades ahead of its time, because all of the city's pro sports teams' facilities are now located in that area.

It was first constructed in time for the 1926 Sesquicentennial International Exposition in Philadelphia, and hosted the first Gene Tunney versus Jack Dempsey heavyweight boxing match in which Tunney won the championship and a light heavyweight boxing match between Georges Carpentier and Tommy Loughran.

JFK Stadium was chiefly known for years as the host of numerous Army-Navy games. It also hosted concerts from time to time, notably the American portion of Live Aid on July 13, 1985. Other notable music groups to play the stadium include U2, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Yes, The Beatles and Pink Floyd. The Philadelphia Eagles football team played here from 1936 to 1939. The stadium was also home to the Philadelphia Bell of the World Football League of 1974-1975.

The stadium was not well maintained over the years, and it was condemned on July 13, 1989 by Mayor Wilson Goode. A concert on July 7th by the Grateful Dead was the last public event held at the stadium. It was demolished in 1992. The Wachovia Center now stands on the site
