    He's the dude with boots. He'll even give you 25% off if you promise to retire your Uggs or Berskinstocks

    And my mother has eyes for nobody but Acamp. She's still raving about your tacos and baked potatoes. You really know how to treat a lady!!! She just wishes your taquito was more like a burrito.

    Remember Night Flight? Always looked forward to that as well on the weekends. Loved me some “Headbangers Ball” too. Remember one of the hosts, Adam Curry? He’s now known as “The Podfather” in the world of podcasts. He does his pod out of TX and is big into the IT media world. Very conspiratorial when listening to him (maybe it’s the weed...LOL) but I wouldn’t have predicted him doing what he’s doing now based on his seemingly contrived look on “Headbangers Ball”...he looked like the typical poser w/ the off the rack leather jacket and perfectly coiffed hair.
    Remember MTV used to announce when videos from top artists were going to be released and you made sure you tuned in to see them for the first time. Videos used to be a large production back then. Also loved the Top 10 videos of the day. Couldn't miss that. Now MTV has nothing to do with music.

    And the beach was full of West End Girls, Addicted to Love, Rock Me Amadeus, Why Can't This Be Love, Summer Nights, R.O.C.K. in the USA, Stages, Let's Go All The Way, Manic Monday, Kiss, I Can't Wait, Something About You. In My Dreams. Had a Maxwell Chrome mix tape with all those songs from the beach.

    IIRC, Winwood came out with Higher Love a little later that year.

    In short, they originally were called the Baseball Boys (from a movie, the Warriors), and changed their name to the Outfield when they signed. Guessing Play Deep was just another play on baseball.

    And yes, getting f'ing old lol.

    If you were between 10 and 40 in '85-'86, you liked their album, Play Deep. That album along with TFF - Songs from the Big Chair and Mellancamp's Scarecrow were 1985.

    I was just back in Michiana for a minute and made a point to go down to the beach at Stop 2 in Michigan City and fired up "Your Love". That's the song I overwhelmingly connect with days at the beach. Thought it would be nostalgic and fun, ended up being REALLY depressing. Thomas Wolfe was right. You can't go home again.

    RIP Tony

    It makes my top 10. I didn't like a lot of Winwood's solo and Traffic stuff (I did love Empty Pages, though), but that Blind Faith album was something special.

    Winwood's voice, Clapton's strumming, Ginger Bakers soft drums, and lyrics like "wasted and I can't find my way home". Just hard to beat.

    Pretty sure he was 14 and still in school when he joined.

    Steve is the bomb. Preferred his time with Clapton/Blind Faith over SD and Traffic, but enjoyed everything he touched. Can't Find My Way Home will always be one of my all time favs. One of those songs that is just haunting. Definitely was one of the better 80s voices as well.

    Went to a Reds/Cubs game at Crosley Field (67?) before it was replaced by Riverfront. Left field had an actual rise of about 1-2 feet near the wall. Talk about home field advantage. Saw Bench, Rose, Perez Vada Pinson, Ernie Banks, Kessinger, Ron Santo and Billy Williams. I don't think I fully appreciated all the great players I was watching at that time.

    Back-to-back MVP in 75-76. Most forget he was an AS w/ the Colt 45s/Astros before being traded to Cincinnati. Not a Reds fan but always loved Morgan & his style of play.

    Ford didn’t shock me as he had to be approaching 90 and wasn’t in the public anymore. He was the ace of a ton of WS Champ Yankee teams. Seems like he pitched forever.

    I wasn’t surprised at Seaver’s passing either. I watched the video of his Mets teammates visiting him at his vineyard in CA when he was struggling w/ Alzheimer’s. Really bittersweet to watch.

    IIRC, Brock had been battling diabetes & may have had an amputation of part of his leg. How ironic for an athlete who accomplished so much w/ his legs. Great all-around player and involved in one of the worst trades the Cubs ever made...to their rival no less....Lou Brock to STL for pitcher Ernie Broglio.
    Ford was 91.

    I forgot that Morgan was a Houston Colt 45. Always hated that they changed their name to coincide with the Astrodome.

    Got to meet Foster at a baseball banquet years ago. It also included Gary Matthews & Steve Garvey. They were honorary captains for the National Amatuer All-Star Baseball Tournament that showcased future college/pro players back in the mid-90s. The keynote speaker at the banquet was Bruce Jenner.

    Being a Yankees fan I had a dislike for the Big Red Machine, but there were very few second basemen that had the speed and power of Joe. He was the heart and soul of the Reds. RIP Joe.

    I am right there with ya. I played second and had the tiny glove just like him. I went to a Big Red Machine camp when I was young - it was amazing, they would never do this in today's world, but we got to spend about 30 minutes with a player from the Big Red Machine that played your position. Most of the position groups had back-up players show up. Joe, Johnny Bench and Geronimo were the only three stars that took part in the camp. Joe taught me how to trap the ball between my glove and barehand on double plays instead of actually catching the ball. I was probably 7 or 8 at the time.
    I thought that was the coolest thing ever.

    This one made me hurt inside.
