I still love "Old Timer's Day"

I must admit that I still love the introductions of all the great Yankee players of yesteryear. They are honoring the 1977 team and oh what a squad that was. I hope ESPN's " The Bronx is Burning," is worthwhile. John Turturro looks like a perfect choice to play Billy Martin.

Bobby Murcer was my favorite player when I joined the little leagues and Chris Chambliss' 1976 HR might be my all time "sports moment." And I never get tired of seeing the players still alive and well after all these years. The Goose, The Stick, Moose Skowron, Louisiana Lightening, Mr. October, Larsen, Nettles, Bucky "bleepin" Dent, Jerry Coleman, Yogi...and so on...
