(I can't possibly be the only one here with his website bookmarked, can I?)
I do now.
I wish I lived closer to cincinnati. Eric was my idol when I was growing up. I never did the number justice as a player but I just had to let everyone know who my idol was. I will never forget driving home from work and actually wishing Danny Graves would walk a batter so Eric (on his retirement tour with SF) would come up to bad and get the proper goodbye from the fans that he helped put back on the map in the late eighties and 1990s. I would gladly donate money to get a chance just to talk (even for a minute) with Davis.
