    Yep, was banned. Don't remember why. I think he just created that thing so he could kick people off.

    "Any injury to a pitcher is an arm injury". Didn't we come to the conclusion that he died?

    Something like that. They were all shoulder or elbow injuries. I forget which. He banned me too. I still live with the sha,e and embarrassment.
    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.

    I think Richard had to go back to work (he was retired when he was doing his newsletter). That's why he stopped it.
    I didn't hear that he passed away (if that is true).
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I actually saw him at RedsFest in the late 90s. I think it was that year they had it in January and there was a big storm. Anyway, I saw him in the front row with his tape recorder trying to talk to Reds people. He reminded me of the Comic Book Store Guy on the Simpsons only with red hair.

    That's OK.

    Heck, sometimes I forget where I am, much less where I was. LOL

    Yea, I remember your meeting with Richard. Kind of a historic event, like when Nixon visited China.

    Anyhow, I hope the guy is still alive and doing well. I know he butted heads with some people, but he kept things interesting on FB.

    Rem, you were on the Enquirer board also, right?

    Btw, wasn't Richard Hand's site called the Little Red Wagon or something like that?

    I was on Fastball, mostly lurking, only occasionally posting. Summer of 1998, iirc.

    The Enquirer phase was insufferable, whence came nutholio de nux, Gallagher, nux's nuthole, et al.
