Thirty years ago today, the unforgettable "Pine Tar" game was played between the Royals and Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

That is funny he can have a sense of humor about it Laughing And, I did not know the background on the ruling. But I remember this game very well from back in the days when you had to see things on the news or read in the newspaper. I can just imagine what the bloggers would say if they had been around!

He recalled the 1980 World Series against the Phillies when he had the most celebrated case of hemorrhoids in sports history.

"Every time I went in the on-deck circle from 1980 to July 24, 1983, I heard every hemorrhoid joke in the world and I was the 'Hemorrhoid Guy,'" Brett said. "And, all of a sudden, after July 24, 1983, until now I have to remind people I had hemorrhoids. So how would you rather be remembered? Let's be realistic -- the slippery stuff or the sticky stuff?"


OMG this totally cracked me up! Lol
