Quotable!
"Every club's the same. You've got two, maybe three guys who do their job and never complain, never say a word. Then you've got about 14 guys who might mumble but they're mild, and easy to handle. It's the other six or seven guys. Every time they're told to do something, the first thing they do is ask 'Why?' They always want to know, 'Why?'"
--Lefty Phillips, Angels manager

Share Your Memories!

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows from all over the world sharing their memories, asking questions, making comments. Our baseball section is new, but don't let that stop you from sharing your memories of the first game you went to, your favorite player, a now-forgotten stadium, etc. Of course you can also ask questions, post trivia, tell the world what you think of Barry Bonds, or just read what others are saying.
