Liam notes "essential" Bronx games we'll never see
As you know, Liam won the “Essential Games of Shea Stadium” DVDs, showing exceptional knowledge of both presidents and Mets.
When he e-mailed me his address, he added the following, which is just too good to keep to myself.
Clearly, Liam is a bad-ass from way back!
“I'm looking forward to seeing Seaver in his prime, and I'm hoping they do a similar box set with all the great games in Yankee Stadium history.
-- Schilling's "Bloody Sock" game
-- Game 7 of the 2004 ACLS
-- Josh Beckett's World Series shutout in 2003
-- Tom Seaver's 300th win
-- Koufax's 15 K performance in '63 World Series
-- The 22-0 drubbing by the Indians
-- The one where Tim McCarver tells us about Derek Jeter's calm eyes.
I'm looking up Yankees with presidential names, just in case ;)
Outstanding, Liam. And he was kind, because I would have added the no-hitter tossed by five Astros -- including Billy Wagner and Octavio Dotel -- and the shameful bat-tossing incident of Game 2 of the 2000 Series.
Readers, let me know if we missed any!
