Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Latvian Foreign Minister Thread, 2022 Edition

A Mets and Rangers fan? Oh my, your sporting fandom has been drenched in misery. Thank goodness you got the Schmucks in '94. Islanders-Habs in '79, tho, would have been immense, a potential passing-of-the-torch final. I am also a life-long Knicks and Jets fan so yes, plenty of sportsfan misery in m...

Re: The NewsRadio appreciation thread

Joe Rogan didn't realize his newsradio character was supposed to be a joke so just went on and built the rest of his career around being that guy but for real. I really liked this show, for many reasons, the Jimmy James character was hilarious. I agree with you about Rogan, he was good in the show ...

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Latvian Foreign Minister Thread, 2022 Edition

I watched every Islander game I could and still remember the core—Bossy, Potvin, Trottier, Gillies, Hesch and Smith, the Sutters, Nystrom, Goring, Tonelli, Bourne. I think you mean Chico Resch, not Hesch. I am a life-long Rangers fan who lived for 50+ years 2 miles from the Nassau Coliseum (Isles h...

was reading Mojo magazine, February 2022 edition, and saw this. I always liked Tom's playing, always thought he was a cool dude too.

Re: MLB 2022

I did a lot of coke. You're no Met! I can see Dave legging out a triple, but missing and first and second in the process. In Mets history, that's already been done. "Marvelous" Marv Throneberry, 1962, Mets' first season. Taken from the Wikipedia page of Marv: In one famous story, on June 17, Throne...

For some reason I was thinking he played on the Pirates but then I remembered the Mets did a lot of coke too. As it turned out, yes they did quite a lot of coke, word was that was why the Cards traded Keith away, he was a "bad influence" due to his drug taking. Those Mets did a lot of drinking as w...

I associate him now with broadcasting, and he and Darling are really damned good. Definitely an elite broadcast team. Yes, us Mets fans have been totally spoiled by having Darling, Hernandez and Cohen in the booth, those 3 make an exceptional broadcast team, listening to them is really a joyous ple...

Re: MLB 2022

MLB Network is showing Game 7 of the '86 WS. I know I watched it and know the Sox had a decent lead well into the middle innings, but have zero memory of the game whatsoever. I'll watch until I get angry (which probably means seeing Schiraldi's face). Well obviously I cannot say anything bad about ...

Re: Back to The Clash - Who has seen them and when?

First time was at the run at Bonds, second week, cannot for the life of me remember exactly which show though. Was a great show, they sounded really great and the atmosphere was colossal. Second and third times I saw them were the 2 shows at Shea Stadium with the Who. Was on the field at the front t...

Re: Marky Dread Remasters

Speaking of which, does anyone have the remaster of the May 23, 1981 Stadio Comunale and the files for the Bonds June 13 Evening concert? Great performances but I can't find the links for them. Thanks in advance! I have the Bonds Remaster. I renamed the files to fit my personal use naming scheme, a...

Re: IMCT is 20!

20, wow that's amazing. I first got on the internet in May 2001 and this was the first "board/scene/whatever its called these days" I ever joined, because I learned there were Clash bootlegs on the site, lol. This is SOOO much more than that, I quickly learned. I am thrilled to still be a part of it...

Re: Happy Birthday Weller259

Thank you all, so very much. Its not easy facing up to the fact that i'm now officially a geezer by anyone's measurement, but the good wishes of you people here for me have made this transition into geezerhood a lot less mentally stressful. Again, I thank you all for the well-wishes and good tiding...
