25 Years Ago Today...

George Brett went berserk when his home run was erased by the umpire because his bat had too much pine tar on it.

For those of you who are not familiar with the great Pine Tar Game, click here.

Also, happy 44th birthday to Barry Lamar Bonds. You are a fink but I still want the Yankees to sign you. We need a left fielder.

Pine Tire????
That's something we use in the constuction of traditional wooden boats.

He should have been pissed, don't you think?

I really like George Brett... His speach to the AL stars before lest weeks Allstar game did the trick... He is a class guy.

Big Head Barry Bonds, huh? Well, yea, I understand why you would want him.

Pine Tar. I have NO clue what you are talking about, and since I have absolutely no interest in any type of balls, except for, well, YOU know!!!!!! I'm declining to read about it.

But I still love ya!

One of the greatest moments in baseball history. I was watching that game with my dad at his house and we were yelling and cheering Brett on when came racing out of the dugout.

On the other hand, it's also sad to watch this and remember those days and then think about how that cheap bastard David Glass and the rest of his Wal-Mart bean counters have completely ruined the Royals.

This was a baseball history lesson. 25 years ago? That makes me feel old.

I remember that game. I was watching with my son, who was 10 then, and when Brett came racing out Jeff screamed "kick him in the balls! f**k him! he's an asshole"

then he turned deep red to realize his Mom was sitting there

He apologized with - "I'm sorry to curse so bad Ma but this is George Brett"

I got it ;)
