A post called "The Sure Thing" and it's NOT just a photo of Mariano?
You dissapoint me, Alex... :(
Is that Joe Morgan behind Pete Rose? Is THAT Seriously Pete Rose? Yikes. I hate Pete Rose.
Cool site. That Earl Weaver quote sure looks familiar. : )
T-minus 15 hours and change.
 Yes that's Morgan, no doubt. Who the other dude? It's not Foster. Geronimo?
Fantastic photo of Rose in full jerk-off mode. Man what an asshole.
 Totally. Who wears a shirt with their own picture on it?? Only Miles or Babe Ruth could get away with that! You going to get up for the game tomorrow?
Man, the 1970s were brutal. In so many ways. But Woo Hooo, it's Opening Day! May have to skip out of work an hour early, just to get home in time for first pitch. And tomorrow evening is Mud Hens (will have to break out winter gear though.)
"I'm Pete Rose. You know why? Because I said so. Everyone says so. Even my shirt says so. You know what I'm drinking? That's not ginger ale. that's scotch. Why scotch? Because I'm a battler, that's why. Everybody says so. Even my shirt says so. Says 'he's a battler and he's Pete Rose.' Pete Rose loves to battle. More than he loves scotch. You got that? Pete Rose, b!+@#. Now f@#% off..."
  Yeah, that's Morgan and I'm almost positive the other guy is César Gerónimo. Either of you read Posnanski's _The Machine_? It's a great read. Rose is not the greatest guy on the planet but given his background you can understand why. Posnanski spoke to him quite a bit for the book. All of the players and Anderson are covered thoroughly, plus there is a lot of cultural history, good stuff about what was happening in the U.S. that summer. The '75 Reds were the shit.
But when is the game starting!!!
I can't wait!
