'The Red Sox Odyssey'... Getting the timing and order of things right is the single most important ongoing factor to finally getting an inspired pursuit right. Bill Buckner knows I'm right. He was just too good not to get that simple play right in The 1986 World Series. Forget about 'the curse of the Bambino'... Red Sox Destiny got in Bill Buckner's way, the night the ball rolled slowly by first base. Seven years ago (from 2011 when this thread of thought began)... The Boston Red Sox did something that no other American Major League Baseball Team had ever been done before, they overcame a three games to none deficit to defeat The New York Yankees in the Best-of-Seven League Championship Series and then went on to win The 2004 World Series... for the first time in 86 years. But that was then and this is today... the day The 2011 Red Sox season came to an end completing, as The Boston Globe phrased it, "The greatest collapse in baseball history." Why does all this matter? It matters because 'Metaphors' matt ...

Baseball fans old enough to remember the '86 Mets-Red Sox World Series, I found this quote ... VERY CREEPY: "The dreams are that you're gonna have a great series and win. The nightmares are that you're gonna let the winning run score on a ground ball through your legs. Those things happen, you know. I think a lot of it is just fate." --Bill Buckner in an October 6, 1986 interview on Boston's WBZ-TV, nineteen days before Game Six.

Born on November 12th, 1868, the story of Jack Ryan’s baseball career is one of the oldest in Haverhill sports history. He was a catcher and first baseman for Haverhill High School, before reaching the Major League. Before reaching the big leagues, Ryan was a standout player in Massachusetts. He was a member of the Haverhill New England League, who he would help win the state championship in Auburn, New York, then joined the Louisville, Kentucky American League. He would play for Louisville from 1889-1891 before becoming injured in an accident. After a three year recovery period, Ryan would make his way back to baseball. He won a spot playing for the Boston Beaneaters from 1894-1896. Although his time playing in Boston was short lived, having the opportunity to play for his home state was surely an incredible honor. He would then take another two years off before joining the Brooklyn Bridegrooms in 1898, then the Baltimore Orioles in 1899. Ryan continued to bounce from team to team at the turn of the ce ...

Just how important are things to you in this world? Just got done watching a segment on Steve Bartman and Bill Buckner, two people who endured the scorn of sports fans for years. As the NBA finals are getting into full swing, remember it's just a game. But at the same time, how focused are you on God? Are you listening with bated breath to a sermon preached from his word? Do you keep up with his teachings, and teach your children about him, the same way you rear your kids in love for your favorite team? Where does your focus lay? Going back to Bartman and Buckner, are we guilty of hanging our heads, becoming emotional, placing those around us as scapegoats to our team losing? No matter how exciting it is, it is just a game.

His intro was hilarious, "Last time I was in Boston, we kicked your *** I left tickets for Bill Buckner but he couldn't bend over to pick them up." At least he made one Hall of Fame, the WWE Hall of Fame. The return to tradition for WrestleMania with celebrities running wild ("Iron" Mike Tyson, Gennifer Flowers, Pete Rose) and the excitement of what WrestleMania should be was felt with this one as it also began the Attitude Era and the beginning of the white sketching of the WWF logo which has been blurred out or modified to WWE. Well, that's annoying.
...a baby is thrown out of a burning building, bounces high off the firemen's net, and. ah! the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Bill Buckner catches the baby! :)
. I know man! The field I pulled a Bill F&$king Buckner and on the field with the crew
You know Chunk has spilled his guts about everything, even distracting Bill Buckner at the 1985 World Series
Angela Corey is the Bill Buckner of prosecutors
Great day of volleyball at the highschool. Sheila and I ran into old friends (VHHS Class of 82) Bill Buckner, Joe Saia and Scotty East who was in town from Georgia for the tournament. Great to see dear friends!
The thing about sports is the endurance of the moment, good or bad, almost to the exclusion of everything else. Jim Fregosi, who by all lights, had a solid major league career, both as a player and a manager, is best known as the guy the Mets got in exchange for Nolan Ryan. Being the lesser subject of the Worst Trade Ever is a crummy payoff. It wasn’t even the result of anything he did on the field, but a stupid front office decision. So it’s probably better than Bill Buckner, whose near Hall of Fame career boiled down to booting Mookie Wilson’s grounder in Game Six. Or Ralph Branca, who at least turned his gopher ball to Bobby Thompson (“The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!”) into a Buddy Act for the rest of their lives.
I would have bet the Russians. USA skip Shuster makes Bill Buckner seem clutch
Former baseball player Jim Fregosi just passed away. He was a heck of a ballplayer but will always be remembered for one thing: Having the 'luck' to be traded to the Mets for Nolan Ryan. It turned out to be one of the worst trades in Baseball history. Kinda like Bill Buckner. The guy's a borderline Hall of famer but all everybody remembers there is a ball rolling through the poor crippled guy's legs when he should've been replaced for defensive reasons at that point in the game like in every other game by his manager. It's odd how a lifetime of success can be overshadowed by one failure. Thankfully, God sees us just the opposite: A lifetime of failure is wiped out by one success: The Cross.
Just re-watched the whole KUvsMICH sweet 16 game from last year on youtube. I feel like Jimmy Fallon watching Bill Buckner on "Fever Pitch"
True. My heart goes out to those who basically dedicate their lives to U.S. curling. Today has to feel like Bill Buckner to them.
Bill Buckner got defined by one play! It happens! Good or bad
Outfielder Mookie Wilson played 12 seasons mainly with the Mets except for his last 2 plus years with the Blue Jays. He was a switch hitter with excellent speed as he accumulated 327 stolen bases in his career. He finished with a lifetime batting avg of .274. He helped the Mets win a World Series in 1986 when he hit the ball that Bill Buckner missed in Game 6 of the World Series. He later went on to become a coach for the Mets. Here is his '87 Donruss card.

Throwback Thursday - an old baseball picture has resurfaced from 1992. My summer team played the "Grey Sox," a team of retired MLB players including George Foster, Bernie Carbo, Bill Lee, Bill Buckner, Fergie Jenkins, Bob Stanley, Pedro Bourbon, etc.
It's sad that Bill Buckner's major league highlight is that play. He won a batting title, great hitter.
What if there wasn't a wild pitch the batter before Bill Buckner's error that tied the game?
A few Cubs quotes. "If I managed the Cubs, I'd be an alcoholic."--Whitey Herzog "There's nothing wrong with this team that more pitching, more fielding and more hitting couldn't help."--Bill Buckner "You get tired of looking at garbage in your own backyard."--Cubs manager Lee Elia in 1983 about why the Cubs got rid of so many players. Elia was fired later that same season. "The Cubs were taking batting practice, and the pitching machine threw a no-hitter."--Radio deejay "The only bad thing about being released by the Cubs is that they made me keep my season tickets."--Ken Rietz, ex-Cub third baseman "Would the lady who left her nine kids at Wrigley Field please pick them up immediately? They are beating the Cubs 4-0 in the 7th inning."--Radio deejay "One thing you learn as a Cubs fan: When you bought your ticket, you could bank on seeing the bottom of the ninth."--Joe Garagiola

My Mets have not been good for a long time. So I must relive the past. Thanks again Bill Buckner.
