Quotable!
"I want people to think of me as an iron man. I feel strong physically as I did earlier in the season, but there have been times when it's been tough mentally. You get tired of thinking and tired of concentrating, and then as you pop up or strike out, you say, 'How did I do that? I wasn't even thinking.'"
--Cal Ripken Jr., Orioles SS as quoted in Sports Illustrated, 10/3/83

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.
