Baseball memory

Posted 01-28-2010 at 09:54 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

One of the things I wanted to be when I was younger was a baseball player. I realize I am no different than any kid at that age, but I had an unusual way of going about working on my ambition-by fantasizing about what a great major leaguer I was going to be someday. I was always undersized, so I dreamed of one day being a hustling, peppery second baseman like Nellie Fox, the King of Hustling Pepper. The thing is, I never did anything about it. Oh, I played softball in grammar school-was the first...

The Wonderful World of Fantasy

Posted 01-28-2010 at 08:40 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I have a very active fantasy life. I come up with scenarios, plots, characters, stories, dialogues, monologues, etc. One might think this is a good thing-that kind of life means one is creative. Well, it has worked to my detriment. I have never been able to meld any of my stories, plots, etc. into any kind of cohesive whole-just bits here and pieces there. I did sit down and try a few times, but quickly lost patience. Don't know why, I guess it is because I am well aware of how many writers try...

Chicago sports

Posted 05-28-2009 at 10:24 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I'll put this here instead of a thread.

I find myself disliking Chicago sports, except for the White Sox. Seriously. I don't follow the Bears anymore. I used to be a huge fan. Now I couldn't care less if their QB is Jake Cutler, Rhett Butler or whoever the hell it will be next year. Big freaking deal. Same with the Bulls. YAWN. I don't care.

Now with the Blackhawks. I just saw a thread saying "thank you for this and that" and blah, blah, blah. I never liked...

Book idea-"The 50 Greatest Games That Did Not Involve the Yankees or Red Sox"

Posted 05-16-2009 at 08:57 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I have had an idea for a while-a book entitled "The 50 Greatest Games that Did Not Involve the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox." This book would take a look at games that are, for the most part, overlooked by the ESPN-driven hype fest for the Yankees and Red Sox. The purpose would be to say enough!-to all the damn hype and the books about baseball's great moments being monopolized by those two teams. I mean, come on. ESPN.com last year had a list of great LCS moments, I think it...

"Baseball in Chicago" Dream Documentary-cont.

*The "Black Cubs?" Was the 1918 World Series fixed? Unearthed evidence that seems to point this fact would be explored.


*The Federal League challenge of 1914-15 and Chicago's forgotten pennant winner-the Chicago Whales of 1915.

*Charles Weeghman and his forgotten impact on the game. It was he who built Wrigley Field and moved the Cubs there after the FL went out of business. Shrewd businessman or Accidental Genius?

*The Cubs and White...
