Suffering from Withdrawal, Part II

I am so close to dragging my old Strat-O-Matic Baseball out of the basement. For a quick fix, I logged onto Yahoo! Sports and dug up some old Fantasy Baseball League stats. Yes, I have a problem. I'll be the first to admit it. Ozthegreat, I know you're going through this too.

Not quite one month has elapsed since my last baseball withdrawal blog, but I have suffered a mild setback today. Since the weather has been fairly crummy here the last few days, it's been difficult wanting to leave the comfort of the house. Seeing the Chicago Bears played on Thursday, I don't feel as if I should be planted in front of the television. Instead, I found a few baseball gems to share.

How about a retro commercial. Good old Jim Palmer, Hall of Fame pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles, pushing a classic hair care product.

Rogers Clemens in the shower long before his HGH days. I'm sure that's his real voice too.

For years and years, the Boston Red Sox just couldn't win the World Series. They would get there, but always found themselves on the losing end. If you're a Cubs fan, be careful what you claim you'll sacrifice for a World Series title. The Red Sox finally accomplished the feat in 2004, and again in 2007. Now it's time to pay up.

How about the Houston Astros from the 1980s pushing Burger King products. How much are the rainbow jerseys?

Enjoy!

You need to learn to love Football (That's "Soccer" to you native born Yanks). Just get FSC and you'll be sorted.

I've been to a Chicago Fire game. Does that count? I saw them when they played at North Central College in Naperville.

Bill, you are exactly right. I am suffering withdrawls right with you! However you do have a problem by looking up old fantasy stats!

I agree. Especially when I noticed that I finished in 15th place (out of 15 teams) back in 2001. I had Jim Parque as a starting pitcher. Yuck!
