The good old days

Things I miss about being a young sports fan back in the day (the late 1970s and 80s):

10. Herb Score (RIP) calling Tribe games on the radio.

9. Breaking in a baseball glove.

8. Larry Bird, World B. Free, Magic Johnson and Bernard King.

7. George Brett's sweet swing.

6. The bleachers at old Municipal Stadium.

5. Nev Chandler (RIP) calling Browns games on the radio.

4. Pickup football games at the park.

3. The sound of aluminum bat on ball.

2. Bo Jackson, the best athlete ever I've ever seen.
