    Tug McGraw? Of course I heard of him. Poor guy. His son does quite well now, you know? His other son, once he got that rape accusation behind him, turned out alright as well!
    A reporter once said to Kruk, "How do you smoke when you're an athlete?"

    Kruk didn't miss a beat. He said, "Hell Lady, I'm not an athlete, I'm a baseball player." Or something to that effect.

    I like Mitch Williams too. :D
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    Yep. That quote is pretty famous around here!! That was one of the most fun, most exciting rag tag team of ball players there ever has been.

    While I remember "Inky" playing for the Phils in '93, I have much more distinct memories of him. Specifically, butchering left field in old Arlington Stadium along with Kevin Reimer for the Rangers. They used to sell $4 seats in the gigantic outfield seats. Perfect for college students.

    Inky was a horrid LF, and then Reimer made him look even better. :D

    How does anyone not love Kruk...?

    You youngsters probably don't remember Tug McGraw?

    Go Phillies.
    I think I almost saw my Pop Pop cry when that happened...he listed to the Phillies on the radio in the egg washing room every night after we'd pick all the eggs. :p

    Man I miss that time of my life. Freakin wild thing, it's great knowing people who were fans in that era. And yes, Kruk was always a household favorite...my dad flipped when he saw that Kruk is a commentator now.
