1984….the year Rickey stripped down to his chonies.

RickeyHendersonPlaygirlPT I’m not going to do a spring training report this year because…well, let’s face it, spring training doesn’t mean much to anyone but minor league players who want to sniff a few jock straps and have some stories to tell on the bus while they’re travelling to another crappy hayseed town. Most players think that the whole ordeal lasts waaaay too long, and I tend to agree. At this point in time I have no interest in watching Joe Blow from AA Round Rock pinch hit and strike out on 3 pitches because he’s never seen a curveball.

Instead, I have decided to take you on yet another virtual time travel. Rickey Henderson posed for Playgirl in July 1984, and I thought “gee, that was an interesting year in pop culture.” I was 9 years old and loved Michael Jackson. The biggest topic on the playground was,”would you fuck Madonna?”  Of course, we were all virgins and wouldn’t know what to do with our peckers even if Madonna was a pedophile who was attracted to small town knuckleheads.

Have a look and listen. Maybe a few of these videos might shake loose a memory from your rotted cerebrum and you can experience a serious case of the deja vu’s. I love when that happens. It leaves me speechless and almost comatose for a few moments.

Prince’s version was actually the number 1 single, but since he is such a hard-on about his music, here is the Patti Smith version. I love her.

number 1 album.

top grossing movie.

Padres and Tigers in the World Series. Yuck.

Who could forget the George Orwell classic!

forever grateful to the tease MJ put on that sweet little broad, turning into a monster and all and you should be glad Tiger stadium once existed, for Reggie’s sake.

Man, I love them old stadiums. If you get a chance, check out the newly renovated cricket grounds for the Dodgers/Dbacks game in Australia. Looks like a classic MLB stadium.

i think that first game starts at 4 am est which is what? 1 am pst. i hope it’s on tv. i’m usually awake by 5. They’ll probably do some scans of the cricket grounds.

here is a Brewers blog I thought you’d enjoy, Steve.
