It makes me wish we could go back to the 80’s and 90’s when people didnt get bent out of shape about everything.

    (L.J. – Thanks, Chris. I was thinking the same exact thing when I heard that portion of the clip. It was definitely a different era.)

    Nice job! I still get chills listening to the Decinces homerun call…seems like it was yesterday for a lifelong Oriooo’s fan as Eckman would say.
