LOL, you warm weather wimp- I suppose you can take credit for planting the seed.  Haven't heard from Zombo yet.



Zombo is in for that game as well.  The whole island of misfit toys will be in town to see us go to 2-0

Hard to imagine he's been gone for almost 20 years. He and a guy from channel 8 came out to a Westside bar I was playing early in my solo days. Stayed almost all night, drinking and laughing like hell at my stupid jokes, great guy and a great broadcaster. I have to admit Jimmy Donovan does a hell of a job too!




I laughed like hell at your stupid jokes and even stayed most of the drink and was drinking.   :-)

As you might expect The Mick was a great football player as well...but gave it up.  Here is the wiki quote on his football career:


 Mantle was an all-around athlete at Commerce High School, playing basketball as well as football (he was offered a football scholarship by the University of Oklahoma) in addition to his first love, baseball. His football playing nearly ended his athletic career, and indeed his life. Kicked in the left shin during a practice game during his sophomore year, Mantle's left ankle soon became infected with osteomyelitis, a crippling disease that was incurable just a few years earlier. A midnight drive to Tulsa, Oklahomaenabled him to be treated with newly available penicillin, saving his swollen left leg from amputation.[7]



Im sure he was quite the football player but would seem that he won even less football games in the NFL than Colt McCoy!  :D :P
