    Today MLB was showing a 1976 game between the Yankees and the Tigers - The Bird was on the mound. It looked great. The No Pepper sign on the backstop, the scruffy Tiger Stadium field, bat boys with "Bat Boy" on the back of their jerseys, old guys smoking stogies in the stands. Back with the Game of the Week on NBC was THE. GAME. OF. THE. WEEK.

    Was this the June Monday night game that really made him famous? I remember watching that on my old B&W TV. One of my all-time favorite players, we were born exactly one day apart.

    I was just watching it on TV at the gym, listening to podcasts while reading my New Yorker. I probably should have recognized the graphics though.

    1:51. The network must have have been flipping out over lost revenue.

    Didn't hear Cossel when I switched over. Warner Wolf on the PBP. Uecker on the field.

    The ABC team was Bob Prince, Warner Wolf and Bob Uecker.

    That's a lot of things to be doing at once. I see your humble New Yorker brag, too, but good restraint not telling us about the Airpods.

    Never been a better time to have it done. History won't care a bit about 2020 even if a semblance of a season is thrown together.
