Here's some news

Buster Posey is catching again. While I enjoy watching the Tigers, Rangers, Cardinals, and Brewers fight it out in the post-season, all I really care about is the Giants. The Henry Schulman Sporting Green story about our wunderkind donning the tools of ignorance and catching live pitching in Arizona made my morning. Can't wait to see him behind the plate in 2012.

Truly wonderful news!!!!!

Now, crack research has resulted in the discovery of the following news item. I had been searching for this on YouTube for several months. Then, the thought occurred to me to just type in 'This Week in Baseball' & try to find some archival stuff. Here it is ...

Very cool, thanks, but I didn't see us in this video, unlike the original.

No, okay, I took a closer look. I recognize Frank & Jon. Is that Mark in the white shirt? And maybe I appear at the last instant, but only my shirt and not my face. This is not the piece of video I remember.

I was at this game, but did not sit in the bleachers for this one day. I had a friend visiting from out of town, and another friend got tickets down the third base line about 240 feet out, close enough to clearly see the concluding events. The friend who got the tix was pregnant with her first child, so of course some dufus nearly fell on her trying for a foul ball.

I am in the white shirt, behind Frank. Mark & Sue appear in the video - they have their backs to the camera. Tom is in it (can't remember his last name) - he faces the camera.

This is a condensed version of the original 'This Week in Baseball' story. Among the differences, the original story had some words from Mike 'The God' LaCoss, who was pitching, when Brenly made the errors. I believe that we featured for a few seconds longer in the original version, too. Somewhere, I have a BETA format video of highlights from that evening's news - we get some extended play in that one. Too bad I don't have a BETA VCR to play it on anymore.

Looking at it again, Bob, I think that you appear right at the end, from the neck down, wearing a check-pattern shirt. You are in a higher row, possibly next to Betty (someone wearing white sunglasses). Paul Theodoropoulos also features prominently throughout the entire clip.
