    I’ll definitely be highlighting a few more games from ’83–it was the first Bucco team that I ever followed, as an eight-year-old (nine that July) living in Mt. Lebanon. They had an impressive 31-11 surge through early August, but just couldn’t get it done at the end. Philadelphia got really hot in September–they won 20 of 24 at one point–to pull away from a four-team pennant race.

    It’s funny how the painful games seem to stick more. I was at the game where Milner hit the grand slam and was carried off the field, either 1978 or 79. That was the craziest crowd ever, we all went nuts. But games where something bad happens linger more. I can replay that game 7 1992 game in my head anytime I want, or game 4 of the world series where the Pirates had the lead and blew it. Was there for that one too!
