    Yes....I Remember.....It was 50 years ago(?) That my good friend and fellow Angel fanatic told me that we HAD TO GO to the Angel game tonight.....The A's were in town and a guy named Vida Blue was pitching..... We went to the game......I don't remember the game at all.....Except that maybe the A's wore white shoes.....

    I'm probably wrong.... It was a long time ago.....Seems Like Yesterday....
    The White Shoes....


    My buddy also told me that we had to go see another A's player....a rookie...." He's Really Good! ".....It was Reggie Jackson.....
    Long, long ago....

    Time Flies....

    RIP. Yes, it seems the older you get the quicker time goes by.
