Holy COW!





were the announcers


Also... do you know how Reggie got his nickname of "Mr October"???

It came from Thurman Munson!
Thurman was being interviewed by a reporter and suggested that Reggie would be the better person to talk to having such
post season prowess.

He said to the reporter...
"Why don't you go and ask Mr. October!"
And the name stuck like glue and thus...
the legend was born!

Pretty neat stuff right!!



And yeah... being I grew up a Met's fan,
we would watch the Yankee games...
and root for the other team... LoL

Oh shut up...
1969 & 1986 will forever be with me!!
