OMG- I still like Sportsmans Park better. I'm stuck in the 40's.
Thanks for posting this, TFG, when I was watching the game last week, I was wondering what outlandish things it did.
I always wonder what the old timers back when thought when they saw a scoreboard with an eagle flapping it's wings and a bird flying round the scoreboard and then perching itself up on a ball that is a clock. Outlandish St. Louis style circa 1965.
I guess Ozzie also said something about getting drunk win or lose after every game recently. So you can't say that everything he says is outlandish.
edit .. ok here it is:
“I go to the hotel bar, get drunk, sleep. I don’t do anything else. I get drunk because I’m happy we win or I get drunk because I’m very sad and disturbed because we lose. Same routine, it never changes. It’s been the same routine for 25, 28 years. It doesn’t change. I don’t like to go out. I don’t have time. I’ve got to be here early, and I go to sleep so drunk that I have to recover in time to go to the park.”
