I love this stuff. What a fun way to reminisce about baseball. I’d almost forgotten about the Pilots since in my mind I considered them more of a minor league team than the majors. I can’t help but wonder what the Seattle old-timers feel about Bud Selig and the Milwaukee Brewers now. I mean do you think they’re cheering for the Brewers this postseason? It’d be interesting to talk today with the man on the street in downtown Seattle about the subject.
I found these two great back-to-back You Tube videos from a fellow blogger at the “Pasttime Post“. So Seattle Mariner fans and anyone else from the Pacific Northwest who remembers ….. get yourself a beer, pop, whatever, and grab some garlic fries. This one’s for you!
