UCLA legend John Wooden almost became a Pirate manager

Unique Hockey professors, now Emirates, now Emirates, can read the roster of the 1981 Port Huron Flags and file a copy of the warranty on their Zamboni.

But then there is baseball and despite his mostly unfinished affection, his beloved Pittsburgh Pirates. If Eric drank alcohol, his fridge would be filled with Iron City beers. So last week, when he hit me with this one, I wanted to know more.

In the mid-1960s, The Pirates replaced Infinity manager Danny Murto, who hired the famous John Wooden as UCLA basketball coach, to replace The Pirates. The Bucs wanted a lot, but Wooden refused.

Emerick sent along some old newspaper clips and memorabilia to support this story.

GM of Books Joe L. There was Brown, who was a famous comedian, actor, and baseball freak who e. Was the son of Brown. Which e. And Bing Crosby each had a piece of pirates.

Which e. Brown adopted Bowling Green University in Kentucky as his unofficial alma mater. The school named the theater in his honor. Emerick received his doctorate in broadcasting from Bowling Green, thus “Doctor”.

Joe L. Brown was in California, dining with Wood – he was already firmly established as a UCLA basketball coach – when questioned:

Of wood
Then Engels manager Mike Scoscia walked off the field before Game 2 of the World Series in 2002 with former UCLA coach John Wooden.

Will Wood specialize in baseball, manage the Pirates? He said that baseball was his first love.

But Wooden told Brown that he suspected that the players would take him seriously. “I don’t know who will run out of town first, you or me.” But the offer remained intact until Harry hired “The Hat” Walker.

“Wood,” Eric said, “kept clipping a newspaper in his wallet as evidence of that proposal.”

And Joe Torre, when he managed the Dodgers, Wooden died in 2008–10 – 2010 – Has said that Wooden told him the same story. Imagine, Wood almost abandoned Roberto Clemente!

As Paul Harvey would say, “And now you know the rest of the story” – even if you don’t know its beginnings.

Historian nails ‘Red Badge’ writer’s baseball love

one more?

Gary Cieradkowski, a brilliant baseball artist, writer and historian – check out His Infinite Baseball Card Set Site – Stephen Crane, author of the classic “Red Badge of Courage” of the 1895 Civil War, has a baseball life.

Crane grew up playing baseball in Newark. His desire to play prompted him to drop out of Lafayette College. He then attended Syracuse, where he was good enough to attract scouts, then joined a newspaper in Asbury Park, where his short literary career was born. He died destitute on 28 in 1900.

As Cerdowski noted, Crane wrote, “But heaven was blue with sunshine and there was no rain on the diamond when I was playing ballball.”

Let’s ride on the local. First stop, Gary Cohen. Come back to us, Gary!

If you sat near him at a Mets game, and returned after traveling to a gender-appropriate facility, you remembered what he asked and he said, “The Cards made a fourth place out of the third” on the mound. Have acquitted themselves well ”- silly thing – you can remove yourself again, this time finding one of those $ 5 subway foot-legs The Mets for 14 bucks.

Would anyone think less about Cohen if he said, “The Cards scored four points in the third” or “Gesmellan did well”?

On the upside, YES’s Yankees Telecast now includes a small and helpful upper-left graphic taking the name of pitcher and batter. Make sure all games sell “yes apps” graphic in the upper right.

It would be sensible to add SNY, which only notes the pitcher, to the Mets’ telecast.

Next, why do I like John Flaherty as the Yankees Yes analyst in the games of David Flonne and Paul O’Neill? Along with Flaherty, Michael Kay is keen to play at least “20 Questions”.

With Flaherty, Kay is more likely to let it come naturally and casually, as opposed to being eager to get something, anything – food, family, exit velocity, launch angle, lunch angle , Spin rates, “high-leveraged conditions,” hype and more stats than you can shake a slide rule to talk about and often produce forced laughter.

Let it be TV. And first, let us see.

Call GM, but not your own fake draft

In about 11 months, the surviving NFL GM will be asked if they regret making such and such a high draft pick, given that he is a hustle by now. The media will not make fun of their own fake drafts, but GMs are subject to laughter.

And, almost always, GMs will reply, “No,” they have no regrets.

Such episodes bring to mind my favorite weight-for-it’s moments from the Super Bowl postgame show, when the coach of the losing coach, even after losing, takes interviews.

When he is asked, “When coaches, would you do anything different?”

And, always, he answers, “No.”

to me? Just after losing the Super Bowl, I accept that there was a second chance that I would do everything differently. I’ll go down for the first time, covering my defensive back with a butterfly net, preventing both kickoffs.

After the bus is lost, what do I have to lose?

Showtime Boxing is still making deals with Floyd Mayweather, proof that even in these “waking” times, ViacomCBS Network will be throwing money at an athlete who served time for an assault, a three-month sentence. Two months, were done. Mother of two of his four children.

But Showtime’s sense of social outrage is selective. After releasing an ignorant, disgusting anti-Jewish proclivity by a former NBA player, porn showtime co-host Stephen Jackson had no problem maintaining employment.

Skip the Subway, as the TV endorser, to hire the most retaliatory, attention-starring, Megan Rapinoe, the first-member of the American women’s soccer team. Was Subway unaware that his World Cup behavior was no better than everywhere in America?

Steve Nash played 70 or more games for 12 of his 18 NBA seasons. Twice he played all 82, twice he played 81. And he played hard, all-in, two-way ball, not this esoteric game of “3-point loiter”. Thus I wonder what he thinks – really thinks – when he goes on to become the coach of the Nets, not knowing who one of his players will be playing, then experience playing alone.

At the end of last month, the Jazz attempted 57 3-pointers in a game. The same game, they took just 38 2-pointers. Of those 3s, he hit just 16 (28.1 percent). The Jazz, currently the top team in the Western Conference, lost that game to the Timberwells, now tied for the second-worst record in the NBA. Pay for the ticket? I’ll pay you to shut it down.

We leave you today with the knowledge of Jimmy Durte: “I know that money can’t buy you love, and money it can’t buy you happiness, but give me something and I’ll do my shopping.”
