...and, of course, Dave has a special place in my heart for giving up that homer to Johnny Bench in the ninth inning in the '72 Playoffs against Pittsburgh. It tied the game and the Reds went on to win. That homer was probably the most memorable baseball-viewing moment of my career. I was there for that one and the place went wild. Happy Birthday, Dave.
