Sparta Report Open Thread MONDAY – THURSDAY

Summer Re-Runs and Greatest Hitz

The 2020 Major League Baseball All Star Game was supposed to be played in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Thanks to The Chinese Virus you’ll hafta make do with a reminisce of an All Star Game long past – 1965 to be exact:

 

ALL STAR MEMOIR

Second pitch of the game Milt Pappas grooves a fastball to Willie Mays and BOOM, there goes a round-tripper to center field.

There were a lotta dingers smacked on that beautifully sunny summer afternoon: a couple batters after The Say Hey Kid, Joe Torre knocked one outta the park. So did Willie Stargell and Dick McAullife.

It was like Home Run Derby on steroids, made more amazing considering that some of the pitchers were such strike out aces as Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale and Sudden Sam McDowell.

Nirvana was achieved in the bottom of the fifth.  The Killer, every kid’s favorite Twin, launched a towering moon shot into the left field bleaches tying the game at 5 to 5.

To say the crowd went wild was an understatement. (In those days the phrase “bat shit crazy” had yet to be coined.)

Bruno Strozek is the author of occasionally semi-coherent piffle and has been a Writer/Editor at Sparta Report since July 2016.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
