Quotable!
"You know, this team, it all flows from me. I've got to keep it going. I'm the straw that stirs the drink. Munson thinks he can be the straw that stirs the drink, but he can only stir it bad. I mean, nobody can turn people on like I can."
--Reggie Jackson, who has denied he said the part about Munson

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.
