Re: I'm going to the World Series
In 1972, when I weas 12, my dad came home from work early Satyurday morning with 4 World Series tickets his boss gave him- I didn't ever find out exactly why. We sat in the green seats at Riverfront behind third base. I mostly remember Reggie Jackson getting booed as he came out during introductions on crutches and weraing a black suit- he was injured in the playoffs. I remember Tenace hitting the first 2 of his 4 home runs. To top it all off, his boss gave him tickets for game 6 the following Saturday, and I remember it ending with Menke getting a force out at third. I still have all 8 tickets and the program is signed by Ross Grimsley, as he was working in a furniture store in Rushville, Indiana in the off season- he was marries to a local girl.
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
