        Reggie, Reggie, Reggie, . . .  It was so nice to see him on
ESPN last night.  Jackson is my alltime favorite player and to see him
hit that Grand Slam in the first inning was great (even though it was the
Old Timer's game).  The only thing that disappointed me was that
he was wearing a Upper Deck Heroes uniform and not the Yankee pinstripes.
I guess they paid him a lot of money to do that.

So did he hit it off *Bob* Gibson? I didn't get to see the game, but the young
whipper-snapper who reported it to me said it was off "some guy named Gibson"
(kids.....) Of course what I really want to know is if Gibson knocked him down
the next time he came up.

How about Denny McLain?  How much does he weigh these days anyway? Looks
like a Weeble (you know, weebles wobble but they don't fall down).  
Hrabosky looks even crazier then he did when he played.

Also, the home run hitting contest has got to prove that Wrigley isn't
a hitters park.  I think they hit about 10 total for the All-* game
festivities at Wrigley, while they must have hit about 30 or so this time.

It's an act; he wears a wig and fake *** hair, and hams it up for the
crowd (who, after all, remember him for that stuff and want to see it again).
Similarly, Mark Fidrych dutifully talks to the ball.  

I don't know whether Bob Gibson knocks down Billy Williams or not... :-)

  Nope. Gibson was relieved immediately after giving up the slam. AFter rounding
  first after the slam, Reggie took of his hat, put his hands together and
  looked at Gibson while saying "I'm sorry - honest!" But poor Bob didn't even
  have a chance to knock anyone down - I bet he still can't sleep!
