New, 2 comments

My apologies for no links articles yesterday. My laptop HDD decided to do its best impersonation of the Blue Jays offense this week so I had to get a replacement and then rebuild everything which is why I haven't been here a lot lately or watched many of the games. It seems I didn't miss much.

1982 Reggie Jackson, who left the Bronx when the team decided not to renew his contract, returns to Yankee Stadium as an Angel, and to the delight of the New York crowd, hits a long home run contributing to California's 3-1 rain-shortened victory over the home team. The fans show their displeasure about losing 'Mr. October' to free agency by chanting "Steinbrenner Sucks" as Jackson rounded the bases while the Yankee owner stands defiantly in his box.
