Maybe, but they are deep rooted feelings...

I can't recall him at all.

aren't you suppose to be on a river with TWC?
That was Sunday. Today is driving and them driving and then yet more driving. Tomorrow will be much if the same as well as the next day (except a beer or two with some dill weed).

 

 

Plus eleventy points!

Well, they got him in a trade for Billy Williams - in 1975 I think. So I would say from 1975 to about 1981? Then he went to the Phillies as I recall, but I cannot remember what the trade was -- there were so many involving the Phillies around then. For Moreland maybe. Then he came back for a second stint from around 86 to 88 or so.

 

Well shit, if Spriggs doesn't know the answer, but since we have a fun game of Battleship going on...

 

This one wipes out the Battleship - 1975-1978

 

No clue but I'll play off of Stinky Pete,  1985

 

Miss

 

I'll say 1987. It's like playing Battleship. We don't know if its the little tugboat one, or the aircraft carrier.

 

Hit two on the Cruiser, she's listing to port.

 

The final year is 1988.

Why is everyone just guessing a single year? "Sweet Swinging" Manny was a Cub for a long time dammit.

PS...I'm afraid TWC's 4 day drug-fest journey into the woods might have killed him. I'm worried about him.

Tim is suppose to be there with him... and I'm sure he is fine and having a better time than he would hanging out with us...

 

 

Nah, man, I'm here, but buried under a pile of work shit.  It's like every time I leave I come back to more work than there was when I left.  Obnoxious world not stopping for my vacations....

The only thing I know anything about is Cubs baseball trivia.  I make no apologies for it either! :)   Well, that and maybe a few paragraphs of old tax law that hasn't been repealed over the ages...

Haha!!! There is no cell service for 1 1/2 hours south of there. Beautiful drive along the coast and through some redwoods. He wasn't too burnt out when I saw him.

 

 

Other than a ZOMGWHERESTHEHASH?!?! freakout, I think we were remarkably tame.  Of course, none of the kids had gone to bed yet.  Our debauchery is generally respectful of our kids' innocence.

Yeah, if I need to pick up a text or send an email, the only hope is to drive up into Mendocino, which is why I like camping so very much.  Turn off, tune out, and drop off the world for a while.
