Remember after today’s DaTechGuy on DaRadio (10 a.m. on WCRN 830 A.M.) at 1 p.m I’ll be at the Border Grille and Bar on Mill Street in Leominster having some lunch and talking politics with all who show up. I’ll be giving away tickets to tonight’s game vs the Bisons. Just put your name in the fedora and we’ll draw a winner from the people who attend.

So join us on the radio and at the Border and lets share some great talk and some great food together.

Oh and BTW just a reminder you really need to be at the new blog here.

Join us tomorrow morning as we bring on a plethora of guests for the day.

We start with southern Belle Sister ToldJah in the first hour with Tom from Libertarian Leanings as well. We’ll talk Wisconsin and the budget fight and planned parenthood bringing out the best in the liberal new tone.

And if that isn’t enough in the second hour we’ll have Steve Foley of the Minority Report join us along with Andy from the Right Wing Gaming Room and comic Brian Henchey joining me and Tom for the Panel.

And if that isn’t enough as soon as we are done The Red Sox Host the Yankees at Fenway right on WCRN!

And even better the great talk starts at 6 a.m. with the Weston and Wesley review, followed by conservatively speaking at 7 a.m. and Carol Ann Brown at 9 a.m.

If you are somehow out of range of our 50,000 Watts of range remember you can listen in live here!

At baseball crank, (who I really need to link to more) they are asking what is the one sports event that you would want to go back and see.

His choice of game 7 (actually game 8) of the 1912 world series is a pretty good one (Giants Red Sox) the final game of one of the greatest world series ever played, but my choice is a less significant pair of games in the standing but more incredible in terms of drama.

In 1941 Ted Williams going into the final two games batting .3995 His manager offered to sit him since Major league Baseball rounds up, Williams was having none of it.

When he came to the plate the Catcher for the A’s (then in Philadelphia) informed him that Connie Mack (the manager/owner of the A’s) told the pitchers to “pitch to him” and not around him. Williams in the hottest spot he would be in outside of an airplane at war managed to go 6-8 in the double-header and get his average up to .406. Nobody has come within 15 points of him since, not Gwynn, not Boggs, not Brett, not Yaz, not Bonds, not Ichrio. not Carew not nobody.

And he did this in an 8 team league without expansion pitching.

This was the highlight of doing the Worcester Spring Home Show:

When I think of the 2004 playoffs and world series, I still smile.
