    Live in NYC during the 1950s covering any of the ball teams for any one of the papers.

    Seems like it would have been more interesting during and before '19.

    Nah, 1920 was when everything bubbled over and finally blew up. Then the trial in 1921, and the banished Sox playing all over the country in semipro games throughout the decade.

    1919 was pretty tame, compared to afterward.

    '50s would have been great, too, especially with Jackie Robinson finally breaking into the bigs and Mantle in his prime.

    Do we get to go back knowing what we know now? I'd buy up every square inch of land I could afford.

    And I changed my mind, I want to go back and cover the early 90s music scene in Seattle while putting all my money in Microsoft stock.

    actually, HB sent me a PM and asked if i'd watch his thread for him after hours.

    and numbnuts sucked when he was alive just as much as he still sucks dead.

    I think New York in the '80s -- the entire decade, from the Yankees' good days to their bad days and the Mets' bad days to the good days. I think the role reversal would be a cool thing to witness -- no matter what hat you wear -- to witness, if only for a short time. And from what I've seen and read on that 1986 Mets team, they seemed like no other team in baseball from Doc to Darryl to Mazilli to Foster to Teufel to Backman to McDowell to Mitchell to both Johnsons.
