1 - 1 ht
Fell behind very quickly and have been the better side since.
Then "ducked it up"* in the second half.
Lost 3 - 1.
Oh well, minor bump.
*Quoting @Myshoe from his thread. lol.
I was watching the match yesterday when my connection froze.
I missed 30 minutes or so of the second half.
When it finally came back on we were down 3 - 1. No idea what happened to us other than we gave up 2.
Vida Blue 1971
y'know, I had completely forgotten that he was a lefty.
Kudos for selecting a pre-72 photo. Everything after would've been a ghastly uni.
Up 2 - 0 by the 10th minute!
I'm not even worried about promotion.
We're playing very well right now and that is fun to watch.
Especially compared to the way we started the season.
One of my earliest clear, stand-out baseball memories is of Boog Powell breaking his bat after striking out in the '71 World Series. I thought "this must be the strongest man in the world!" I was quite young.
Back around '70-'71, I thought that Boog Powell, Harmon Killebrew, and Frank Howard were the three best power hitters in baseball. Again, I was just a kid.
It was only a bit later that I realized that no one suffered more from the introduction of form-fitting polyester uniforms like Boog. He looked awful. If you think he looks bad in that 1973 baseball card, you should've seen him a couple years later in those all red Cleveland Indians unis. Tragic.
I may have had some misperceptions of Boog as a child, but I was dead right on that last bit.
Go get 'em, slugger!
Can't believe we didn't win...
Official team highlights...
UP TO 5TH !!
Big save, there, from BPF at around 1:40, when they had a 3 on 1 break. I'm not his biggest fan, but that was huge. They could have easily lost that one.
